Description

Prior to the passing of the Cruelty to Animals Act in 1835 the inn contained a gated room with an earth floor that was used for blood sports. As such, it was an unnerving site for the ostler employed at the inn to witness a woman in a vivid green dress standing on the stairs that led to what would have been an exclusively male domain. His unnerved state was then compounded by the realisation that the woman was not, as he had at first assumed, the innkeeper’s wife, but Jenny, who had recently died.
