A Story to Tell

Do you love to bathe in historic romance, get the adrenaline pumping with ghostly stories, marvel at charming olde-worlde architecture, or follow in the footsteps of a legendary figure? Then a Great Country Pub will have a story or two to fascinate you.

Everyone has a fascinating story to tell and a wise lesson to teach.

Much of England’s Wiremill, Felbridge, Surreyillustrious history has been lovingly preserved in its charming inns –what lies hidden behind those ancient walls and beneath those creaky floorboards? Visiting one of these historic country inns can be likened to an enthralling journey through the passage of time.

If it's ghost stories you’re after, the The Wiremill in Felbridge (Surrey) is rThe Anchor, Danbury, Essexeported to be haunted by the ghost of a worker who fell into the mill’s ‘lower mechanism’. The story may have been fabricated over time but when you’re here late at night you can feel something in the air!

In Danbury, Essex, The Anchor's resident ghost is believed to be a man who drowned in the pond at the top of the road after leaving the pub inebriated – occasionally he plays tricks by unlocking doors, switching the radio on in the middle of the night and has been heard running across the floor upstairs!
