  • One of the most chilling episodes in the series. There's a sense of terror and foreboding throughout the entire program.

    My wife saw this episode and raved about it incessantly. I had to wait for months before it was replayed and it was worth it. I usually skip the first 25 minutes of history and psychic walkaround, but on my wife's recommendation, I sat through it all and instead of getting that "same ol', same ol'" feeling, I felt a growing, skin-prickling sense of dread. The location is terribly creepy, the proprietor seems as much a prisoner as a custodian, and the spirits! I tuned in to this series to hopefully catch some evidence of the supernatural (cf, Station Hotel, Derby Gaol, Culzean Castle, et al) and although I didn't see anything that compelling, the attack on Stewart was one of the most frightening things I've seen in TV or film in a long while.moreless

    • This location was also investigated on the Travel Channel's paranormal show Ghost Adventures in the second season episode "Ancient Ram Inn".

    • Derek Acorah, Stuart Torevell and Karl Beattie were attacked by a ghost in the barn, in which Stuart was felled and beaten about the chest, ribs and head. The ghost also pushed Derek and Karl away from trying to help Stuart. But this wasn't the only time Stuart was physically attacked in the investigation. While leaning over some equipment during set-up, he felt something hit him hard on the shoulder, but there was no one there and nothing nearby that could have hit him, according to him.
