    Default Haunted Liverpool Pubs

    You'd think that there would be lots of info out there on haunted pubs in Liverpool; everyone seems to know some vague story about one old pub or another. And yet, I've had a huge amount of trouble trying to find any verifiable* stories pertaining to haunted boozers in Liverpool. Anyone know of any good stories that I might be able to get my teeth into? Anything that's been in the Echo or another paper?

    *by verifiable I mean anything with enough facts in terms of names, dates, recorded accounts or anything like that to even begin researching properly.

    How are you getting on with your book?
    I don't know of any pub stories I'm afraid.
    Might be an idea to write a letter to a few pubs asking?

    It's coming on very well thanks for asking. Unfortunately, my other work has been rather getting in the way lately so I haven't had as much time to devote to the book as I would like.

    I have written to a few pubs (and emailed) but so far the response has not been too good sadly.

    'fraid I'm a bit vague too.

    I heard that the pub on Scotland rd, the Throstles Nest' is supposed to be haunted, but I can't remember how the story goes.

    There was a gay bar off dale street I heard that was supposed to be haunted , but it turned out it was just a couple of guys trying to put the willies up each other.

    Tom Slemen mentions a story about the post house in Cumberland street being haunted by a couple of skeletons playing the old joanna?

    The Punch bowl in Sefton is supposed to be haunted by a few ghosts and both the above stories were featured in the echo some time back but as you'll know with ghost stories - very unreliable!
