Three locations, one investigation. The Heritage Centre, Laffertys Pub, and The Bell Inn give Derby a claim on the title of 'the most haunted city in Europe'. Bodies under the floor at the Heritage Centre; a skull - believed to belong to a murdered woman at Laffertys; and a room that no one will stay in at the Bell Inn, make this investigation one of the most challenging and frightening of the series. The Bell Inn is an old coaching inn. The building, built in 1680, retains much of its original features. Amongst reported sightings there is a Victorian lady in blue, a poltergeist who throws things around and a maid in 18th Century garb. The maid is said to have been murdered in 1745 and has been seen in the presence of children. The George Inn, now Lafferty's, was one of the most famous coaching inns in Derby and was built around 1693. Over the years the inn hosted the Duke of Devonshire's headquarters during the 1745 uprising, it has also been home to vet and dentist surgeries, the post office and a makeshift funeral parlour. The inn is reputed to host many ghosts and mysteries including the 'George Skull'. This damaged female skull was found by workmen in a pit beneath the cellar. The skull was found amongst animal skulls and bones, shoes and strips of leather. Perhaps the skull was put there by superstition? In 1693 new buildings were built on a human skull, a pair of shoes and a dead cat to ward off evil spirits and witches. Other reported activity saw a long-haired man in a blue coat walking along the landing, crockery moves from the racks in the kitchen and the bar staff have had many paranormal experiences including objects flying across the room, hearing human groans from the cellar and pint mugs shattering.moreless
