The Red Lion, Wombourne
The ghost of a mysterious lady has haunted The Red Lion for many years. When Frank and Lil Ward moved to the pub in 1963 they were told she was a previous landlady who had died falling down the cellar steps but this is debatable.
In the 1980s the ghost was particularly active. It started off with barmaid, Frances, seeing a figure walk past a window in the pub. The window had no modern access and was at least 10 feet from the ground.
Shortly afterwards landlord Lee Thacker briefly saw the apparition of a lady in Victorian style dress sitting in the lounge area. He had the pub blessed by local clergy but this didn’t stop the same spectral lady appearing to staff on the security cameras one night. She was sitting in the exact same seat where Lee had witnessed her previously. When staff went to investigate in the securely locked lounge there was nobody there.
