Beacon Hotel, Sedgley
The Beacon Hotel is a Victorian style pub and home to the Sarah Hughes Brewery. Sarah took over the pub in 1921 but by all accounts still keeps a watchful eye over the pub and not just from her realistic portrait. She was seen by one of the previous managers walking through a wall in the smoke room where there was once a door. Listen carefully in the hallway and you may hear the sounds of someone walking about upstairs and moving things around even though the upstairs is only used for storage these days. The ghost of a previous landlord dressed in his working clothes has also been seen here.
On one occasion the large heavy key used to secure the internal doors went missing one night after locking up. A thorough search failed to reveal the whereabouts of the key. It reappeared behind the bar with a loud clatter the following day as if thrown by some invisible hand.
