The Fading Ghost of West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire

Like many villages around Nottingham, West Bridgford is now almost a suburb of the larger city. It retains its own character and high street, but the network of roads is continuous into the city.

Down towards the river, near the famous Trent Bridge cricket ground, stands the Lady Bay public house. During the 1970s and early 1980s the pub seemed to be bothered by a visitation of strange, ghostly activity. The figure of a man wearing a cloak was glimpsed infrequently in the car park, while inside the building lights would be flicked on and off by invisible hands.

Today the ghost does not seem to be very active. Certainly he does nothing to detract from enjoyment of the fine meals and quality drinks on offer.
