The Ancient Ram is thought to date back to around 1145. The beautiful grade II listed building has been lodgings, a priest house and an inn until around 1968. The beloved late John Humphries purchased the building from the brewery and battled to save the historic structure. A heavy foreboding atmosphere, the building has been said to house around twenty ghosts. The first room that visitors encounter is the "Men's Kitchen." This reputedly stands on the site of a pagan burial ground, and the disturbing sound of a baby crying is often heard here. People ascending the steep staircase up to the first floor have been thrown up the stairs by invisible hands. A photograph taken here in June 1999 showed a mysterious white mist, about the height of a human, ascending the staircase. On the first floor is The Ram's most haunted and terrifying room, the Bishop's Room. A medium pushing open its door was once lifted off the ground and flung across the corridor. The atmosphere inside is oppressive and disturbing. A ghostly cavalier has been known to materialize by the dressing table and stride purposefully across to the opposite wall. Two monks have been seen shimmering in one corner. Witnesses have heard the terrified screams of a man who was, reputedly, murdered here by having his head thrust into the fire. A phantom shepherd and his dog have been seen near the door, whilst those who spend the night in the room have often attracted the lustful attentions of either an incubus or a succubus. 'Rather a lot for one room,' observed John Humphries to me with decided understatement. Climbing into the attic and crouching beneath the roof timbers, a feeling of intense melancholy appears to hang in the air. An innkeeper's daughter is said to have been murdered in this roof space in the early 1500s, and people attempting to sleep in the Bishop's Room below often hear the sound of 'something heavy' being dragged across the floor above their heads.
