Ghost Hunt at Old Church House Inn (Nov)
Venue: Old Church House Inn · Location: Torbryan Devon6 Tickets Available
Date: 6th November 2021 · Time: 8:00pm until 2:00am · Tickets: £49 Per Person
The Old Church House Inn, Torbryan, Devon has a long history, built in 1240, it predates the Black Death and the fireplace is thought to be 8th century in origin.
Many people have called this building home, but the de Brian family were the longest lasting tenants having resided there for 250 years.
Behind the bar the wood panelling that lines the wall was salvaged from one of the ships of the defeated Spanish Armada.
According to legend, Bertie Robinson, a local writer would come and write in the pub while having a few drinks.
Robinson, was working on a supernatural tale of terror concerning a giant black devil dog that hunted down and wiped out a family.
Another writer who frequented the pub was none other than, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
Some believe Doyle stole the idea from Robinson and used it to write The Hound Of The Baskerville's. Arguably his most famous book.
It's also believed Doyle poisoned Robinson to shut him up. However, this story is pure speculation.
Talk of ghosts have been a part of the Inn's history for well over a century. With both staff and patrons having numerous encounters with the supernatural.
Most Haunted investigated the Inn in 2005.

The Disembodied Arm - In 1997, a woman staying in Room 1 was yanked out of a deep sleep when a horrific sight met her eyes, that of a disembodied arm of a man was floating directly in front of her pointing at the wall behind her.
The Spectral Monk - Over the last century the menacing figure of a monk in a black robe and hood has been witnessed lurking around the bar.
The Landlord's Encounter - A former landlord who lived at the bar with his son heard the boy cry out in terror. When he entered his son's room he could see the transparent form of a man leaning over his son.
The Armada Wall - Patrons sitting at the bar have claimed to see the screaming faces of men in the wood stripped from the Spanish Armada war ship.
