The Busby Stoop Inn, at Kirby Wiske - a village near Thirsk in North Yorkshire - takes it odd name from the 18th century owner Thomas Busby and the hangmans gibbet across the road from where Thomas Busbys remains were displayed after he had been hung for the murder of his father-in-law in 1702. Since then, his ghost has appeared many times with his head lolling and a rope around his neck. Outside the inn a noose still dangles from a gallows arm.

Within the pub it is said a chair that Thomas - whilst in a drunken stupor and dragged from and taken straight to the gallows - was cursed by Busby and he swore that anyone who sat in his chair would die as violently and suddenly as he himself was about to.

Simon Theaskston, whose brewery owned the pub until 1998 said the legend may be odd and vague, but it is a matter of record that in the last 200 years or so, death has indeed struck anyone who dared to sit in the char within a very short time. It is said that many who sat in the chair were dead within days or even hours!! Eventually the chair was moved out of harms way and can now be found in Thirsk museum.

It has to be said that many of the chairs victims of the last few decades could be categorised as 'high risk'. They onclude an RAF pilot who was killed the following day, a motorist who crashed the next day and died of his injuries, a motorcyclist who died on his bike shortly after leaving the pub, a holiday hitch-hiker who was knocked downa and killed two days later and a local man in his late thirties who died of a massive heart attack the following night. But the odds against all of them dying so soon after sitting in the Busby Chair must be high enough to suggest this was no mere coincidence.

This location was ok just like the other pubs that we have done.
There was a situation while taking part in the seance when myself and jay thought we saw a figure walking backwards and forwards behind the bar. We know that no one was there so that was weird.
Again, Im personally not convinced it is haunted but nevertheless a cool place to Investigate.

From an activity point of view - it was quiet with nothing much to report. The bar instance mentioned above, was interesting although there was nothing on the camera we had set up in the bar to confirm or rationalise what was seen.

I think the hits that Ralph got concerning the goings on in the inn which were all confirmed by the landlord and landlady was pretty impressive stuff, too ..

lol Nope i really dont believe u can go into a supposed haunted place and capture anything and stuff people do experience could be rational. Id ove to think once people die they are there looking after us as i have had some close family pass away and it is a really nice thought but what i dont believe is you can go to a supposed haunted Location where spirits are supposed to haunt and capture anything.
