The original Whittington Inn dates back to 1310 and it comes as no surprise to discover that the present building is haunted. Prior to becoming an inn in the 18th century it was the manor house of the De Whittington family of Dick Whittingham fame. One of the ghosts seen here is that of a monk who may have hidden in one of the priest holes in the building.
