The Ancient Ram Inn from the rear.

The Ancient Ram Inn is a Grade II* listed building[1] and a former pub located in Wotton-under-Edge, a market town within the Stroud district of Gloucestershire, England. It is said to be one of the most haunted hotels in the country. The inn has been owned by many people since 1145 and was in the private ownership of John Humphries until his death in December 2017. This inn was said to have also been owned by the local St. Mary's Church when first built.[2][3]

Televised paranormal investigations[edit]

The Ancient Ram Inn has been investigated by many paranormal researchers, particularly for television shows like Ghost Adventures and Most Haunted.[4] The inn was featured on Great British Ghosts and was also investigated by a UK Paranormal Study group led by Kieron Butler, which consisted of seven people, including photographers and mediums/spiritual advisors.[5] The Ghost Club (the oldest paranormal research organization in the world) investigated the inn in 2003[6] but didn't register anything paranormal. Horror actor Nathan Head discussed the Ancient Ram Inn in an episode of the Canadian television show Aberration: Into the Unknown.[7] The Danish paranormal research team DPA (Dansk Parapsykologisk Aspekt) has also been there with a TV crew, shooting an episode for a Danish ghost-hunter TV show.
