Just opposite from the Yorkshire Hussar pub stands the very modern Park Inn Hotel. One of the houses that was pulled down to make way for this imposing edifice was well known to be haunted. A murder had taken place there in Victorian times, and the ghost of the victim had walked in the house ever since. Most people hoped and expected that when the old house was bulldozed, the ghost would go with it. Not so, apparently. Since the hotel opened there have been persistent, but largely unconfirmed reports, that members of staff have seen a vague, shadowy figure of indistinct outline hovering about the place.
