History of The Ancient Ram Inn
The inn was built in 1145. Priests used the inn years ago as a keeping house for slaves and workers who helped construct nearby St Mary's Church. In 1930, the inn was bought by Maurice De Bathe. Since then the inn has become a private property and has changed hands several times.
The land where the inn is built is on the intersection of 2 Ley lines. These are places which people believe to have high spiritual energy. When you use a map, you can trace the lines all the way through to the centre of Stonehenge. According to legend, Stonehenge has energy which travels through the Ley lines to feed the paranormal energy found in the Ancient Ram Inn. Furthermore, an ancient Pagan burial ground is reported to have resided in the location over 5000 years ago.
John Humphries purchased the building in 1968 from brewers for £2,600. He saved the building from demolition and has made it his lifes's mission to save the structure from falling apart. He is now over 80 years old and the sole occupant of the house and from what people say, a right character too.
