Chester: England's Most Haunted City

Barlow's Ghost

Pub ghost, ChesterUntil 2002, Chester's unusual Barlow's pub occupied two-storeys at 30 Bridge Street. It had two bars: one on the street and the other off the Row above - but with no interconnecting doors or stairs between the two!

Now converted into a soulless, upmarket shop, the building is still haunted by a disapproving former landlord.

Previously known as 'Ye Olde Vaults', and dating from 1789, the pub was later named after William Barlow, the devoted landlord in 1898. His sole purpose in life seemed to be maintaining the excellence of his pub and its beer. But the pub was refurbished in 1900 and other landlords came and went; and few of the changes were for the better. Which didn't go down well with old Mr Barlow. For many decades, regulars claimed to hear loud bangs, groans and wails emanating from his disgusted spirit.

During the recent renovations, the site foreman corroborated these claims: 'All of us felt we was being watched', he said. 'It was definitely the creepiest place we've ever worked.'
