Doncaster, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 18, 2011 -- The Golden Fleece is a Tudor looking timber framed building, and as you walk through the doors you can see how steeped in history this location is.
The Golden Fleece is reputed to be one of the oldest coaching inns in York and its origins can traced to around 1500.
One of the bedrooms is named after Lady Alice Peckett whose husband John is a former landlord and Lord Mayor of York. The spectral residents of the Golden fleece are said to be Lady Peckett herself, Lady Peckett's ghostly body is reported to walk the corridors of this old inn. A malevolent spirit called John is known to haunt the bedroom at the top of the building.
On a ghost hunt at The Golden Fleece some years ago we were all calling out for spirit activity when we all heard a bang on the floor, and some noise coming from the bedroom wardrobe. What we found will stay with us for years, not only a coat hangar was now on the floor the remaining coat hangars were swaying likes a pendulum.
After the screaming and shouting had subsided once the shock had gone, we all knew that something not humanwas in that room that had thrown the coat hangar out of the wardrobe and was the cause of the other coat hangars to swing to and fro.
It was an eventful incident that will stay with me and the others in the group forever, and as our return to The Golden Fleece approaches the Simply Ghost Nights team is getting excited to see what John the spirit resident of The Golden Fleece will do next time.
Glass divination and table tipping have also been recorded at this reputedly famous haunted location in the centre of York.
Dare you join the Simply Ghost Nights team for a journey into the unknown world of the paranormal.
