If you aren’t of too nervous a disposition and are curious to experience ‘strange happenings’ then why not book a stay at our lovely Country Inn. Built in 1720, the Plough Inn is situated in the small, rural village of Wigglesworth, surrounded by the wonderful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland.

A number of strange happenings have been reported at The Plough Inn over the years, many of which are attributed to the ghosts of Landlady, Mrs Gladys Saxton, and 17 year old maid, Margaret Harrison, whose lives were lost in a fire at the Inn in the early hours of March 1945.

One couple were woken in the night by someone ‘plumping up’ the pillows on their bed. Another guest found his car key had mysteriously bent double during the night of his stay. A number of guests, at different times, have seen a woman in long black clothes patrolling the upstairs corridor. Guests have been woken in the middle of the night by a fellow guest screaming that she had seen the figure of a highway man standing at her bedroom doorway. The 4yr old daughter of one of the Inn’s staff refused to enter one of the bedrooms saying “I don’t like it. It doesn’t feel nice. It’s scaring me”. One couple saw ‘orbs’ of light in their room during the early hours. Comments are often made by staff and guests of the feeling of a ‘presence’ or of their name being called out when there is no one there.

In December 2004 we had a visit from a group of Ghost Hunters. They stayed awake throughout the night and spent time in various rooms in the Inn. They photographed ‘orbs’, saw ghosts in the attic, sensed names and detected unusual ‘electrical’ activity. Their verdict in the morning was that they had never visited a building where there was so much paranormal activity.

A number of recent guests have captured images of ‘orbs’ on their digital cameras. We have copies of a number of these photographs which our guests are welcome to study.

Some of these ‘happenings’ may be able to be put down to an over-indulgence of great food, fine wines and real ales, but even the most sceptical and doubting amongst us cannot easily dismiss all of the stories.
