The Ancient Ram Inn possesses such a level of paranormal activity that the locals claim that there is a very real and chilling aura that is nothing less than menacing. Child sacrifices are a part of the building's history, and it is believed that one of the murdered children, known by the name of Rosie, actively haunts the inn today.

Paranormal Phenomena in Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, England

Some of the most appealing things on the planet can also be the most mystifying, fascinating, beautiful, and eerie. We are often drawn to them because they mesmerize us in such compelling ways that we simply must figure out the esoteric secrets that make them so intriguing to our inquisitive nature. Curious minds have a need to know, and the paranormal never fails to leave unanswered questions. One of the planets most fascinating phenomenons can be experienced at the Ancient Ram Inn, located within Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, England, for those who are venturesome enough to stay for an entire night. Built in 1145, the tenth-century accommodation sits nestled smack-dab on top of a Pagan burial grounds, making the popular bed & breakfast possibly one of the most haunted dwellings in the entire British isles. The haunted inn harbors some of the most distorted tales involving Devil worshiping ceremonies and human sacrifices, and it is booked solid with full-bodied, evil spirits, apparitions and ghosts all wandering around the antiquated, English establishment. Wotton's oldest and creepiest house stands in good condition, but the dwelling has a dark history of owners coming, and leaving just as quickly.

Lustful Demons, Devil Worshiping & Skeletons Under the Stairs

The entire building possesses and emits such a level of paranormal activity that the locals claim that there is a very real and chilling aura that is nothing less than menacing. John Humphries, the owner of the inn since 1968, claims that his first night in the house was anything but welcoming. He has felt a presence grab his arm, before being dragged out of bed and across the room. He admits that he doesn't sleep well, possibly due to the fact that there are two lustful demons running around all hours of the night that makes life as a living being, morally reprehensible. They are often accompanied by a witch and powerful glowing lights that come without a verifiable source. The activity was disconcerting to John, who soon began to investigate his new business in an effort to establish the source of the problems. After renovations began on the inn, John soon discovered evidence of prior devil worshiping and ritual sacrifices. He also found two child skeletons underneath the staircase and a few broken daggers. Today, it is believed that the inn is inhabited by at least twenty specters that actively haunt the place with absolutely no regard to who they are terrifying completely out of their minds.

Child Sacrifices, Disembodied Voices & Oppressive Negative Energy in the Bishop's Room

The history of the inn does offer a few clues as to the possible reasons that things are not as they should be today, as far as normalcy is concerned. The atmosphere literally beckons you to zoom in closer for a deeper look into the chilling circumstances that once occurred in the eerie inn. A white mist almost always accompanies any photograph that is taken within the building, and the Bishop's room will put fear into the most courageous of living souls. Strange activity involving everything from disturbing and oppressive negative energy to a total loss of control of your body takes place in this room. A few people have been levitated and several reports involve people being thrown across the room are part of the paranormal documentation concerning the evil past of the Ancient ram Inn. Disembodied voices warning visitors to, "Get Out" can be heard in tones varying from faint whispers to gut wrenching screams. These voices have been caught on recording devices, and often come across as someone being tortured or murdered.

Child sacrifices are a part of the building's history, and it is believed that one of the murdered children, known by the name of Rosie, actively haunts the inn today. The Incubus and the female supernatural entity, Succubus lurk around in the dark, invading the body and minds of those that they have encounters with during their lurid sexual assaults on unsuspecting victims lost in a physical dreamland condition somewhere between altered consciousness and an involuntary state where hell is a very real and powerful fact. There have been sightings of a High Priestess flowing through the rooms, her potent stance overtakes the entire area and she usually affects objects around her by making them spin or project through the air.

Ghost Adventures Takes On Disembodied Voices Spewing Hateful Threats

Regardless of the inn's eerie and often terrifying aura, it has not stopped the public from venturing into unknown territory and booking the inn solid for a daring adventure where ghosts, evil and the living all come together in one entwined mass of uncertainty. After staying a night at the inn, the brave leave a little less daring and the innocent, not so uncorrupted. Skeptics no longer question the possibility that ghosts exist, and ghost hunters know that they have met with something completely unique from anything else that they have ever experienced. The unwanted house guests do not appear to be going away any time soon despite being asked to leave on multiple occasions.

The Ancient ram Inn has been the center of several paranormal investigations, from both, UK and American paranormal groups trained in demonology. The inn's history of extreme events involving paranormal activity landed on the radar of the popular investigator, Zak Bagans, who in 2009 visited the Ancient Ram Inn with his crew. During their investigation, they were greeted with disembodied voices spewing hateful threats from "don't tempt me and "it's coming" to "get out." During the EVP session the team experienced doors slamming, growling and chanting. A dark mist hovered over the immediate area, allowing Zak to capture it's image on camera. It comes as no surprise to the many psychic mediums, religious figures and paranormal groups who have encountered apparitions, poltergeists, demons, dark shadows, EMF spikes, and other unsavory entities during their stay that hundreds of guests booked at the inn have packed up and left in the middle of the night after hearing, feeling and experiencing things that would scare the hell out of Satan himself.

Sherri, I think this is your scariest paranormal article to date. But I must say the Granato house is running a close second. As you and I both know there is no way on this planet that I would ever stay in a place like this. I'm not the bravest soul in the world and I'm not going to tempt fate. I'm surprised at how many people are willing to stay overnight in a place like this. Congratulations on the shiny gold star. You have a talent for the paranormal like no other. You are the best!

It seems like U.K. has a preponderance of scary accommodations. Maybe its the damp castles, cold stone buildings, rainy moorish weather. Dealing with 'normal' is hard enough to abide. Paranormal? Out of my ken!

Lol, Nancy. You always think that the last article that I write is the scariest. And, LeRain, I have to agree that the U.K. has many haunted buildings.
