The Old Well Inn is a 17th Century Coaching Inn that sits in the center of the historic Barnard Castle.

The Inn sits with it's back against the castle walls and buildings have been present on this site for centuries.

Before The Old Well Inn - named so because of a ancient underground well that was found below the celler - the Inn was known as The Railway Hotel and the hotel itself took up at least 4 seperate properties (as does the inn today) from number 17 to 21 The Bank.


Egglestone Abbey

Before heading to The Old Well Inn, the team first visited Egglestone Abbey - a late 12th century Pre-monstratensian abbey - which is located a 5 minute drive from the center of Barnard Castle.

The centre of the church - the crossing - has virtually disappeared, save for one wall of the south transept which dates from c1275 and still retains much of the window tracery and some of the delightful detail of the buttress. From the first church, only the north and west walls of the nave, and the foundations of one wall of the north transept have survived. Despite this central 'gap', the remaining walls of the church all stand to a good height and, with some imagination, it is possible to visualise what a magnificent building this must have been.

Egglestone Abbey was another 'border' abbey to suffer the financial blows of various wars and disputes throughout the middle ages and, consequently, much repair and reconstruction has taken place over the years. Egglestone Abbey was dissolved in 1540 and, it is believed, shortly afterwards the church tower was demolished because it spoiled the view from the old monastic buildings which had, by now, been converted into residential dwellings.

Although the abbey was not an official investigation by NGI, the Mediums within the team picked up on various spirits associated with the site.

It was difficult for them to come up with anything more than Monks (as you would expect), but it was interesting hearing about monastic life, however, it was felt that the site - perhaps due to it's ruinous state, perhaps due to the time that has past - wasn't at all active.
