In a town near me there is a place called The Martha Washington Inn.  It's absolutely beautiful but totally haunted.

Here is the history...
Originally built in 1832 as a private residence by a Virginia General, The Martha Washington Inn has seen many different uses. From private residence it evolved into a finishing school for young ladies. When the armies of the Civil War battled in and around Abingdon, the building served as a hospital for wounded soldiers, and romantic stories of nurses and soldiers still endure to this day. After the Civil War The Martha became a women

Just about every pub/inn in the U.K is meant to be haunted.  ;D

I don't know if it counts but one of the ghosts we are meant to have at my work place is the cellar man of a pub that was knocked down to make way for the new library in the 1930's.

It's weird to see you talk about 'in and around Abingdon' ! I live five minutes down the road from an Abingdon too.


You don't happen to live near a Bristol too?

Yeah, I've watched the show Most Haunted, seems like they're in a pub just about every other week.

There's this inn that is about 2 miles from me, it's a restaurant/inn and it's been around for a long time. There have been several different ghost sitings there over the years. Recently, a filmmaker created a documentary type of film about this inn...here's the website if anyone is interested.

Here's the website for the restaurant/inn:
