The Woodman, Gornal
The Woodman has been subject to continued poltergeist activity over the years. In the upstairs kitchen all the plates were smashed except one which was left in the middle of the floor. A large key went missing only to reappear the following day in the middle of a bed which had only just been made.
Perhaps the most surprising activity here, certainly for the staff and customers who witness it, is full pint glasses being lifted off the bar tables and placed on the floor without a drop being spilt. On one occasion a heavy metal spirit measure was thrown in the main bar by some unseen hand. Fortunately it dropped just short of the intended target, a customer ordering a pint.
