I work at a 15th century Pub, the Boot and Slipper, in Amersham. The pub is now part of the Chef and Brewer chain. We have long suspected a presence of a supernatural kind, but within the recent years more and more strange happenings have taken place.

The Boot and Slipper Pub

I myself am one of the many sceptics about the paranormal but even I cannot deny that when working in certain areas of the pub I feel very uneasy. The main bulk of the Pub was destroyed by a fire around 7 years ago, and was re-built around the original frame. The reports of paranormal activity started when the pub was reopened. Staff and visitors have reported hearing noises including whispering, have had overwhelming feelings of being watched, seen falling objects, curtains/doors move when there is no wind and shadowy figures have been seen.

Recently the Bar staff have reported are convinced a ghost brushes past them, mutters to itself and puts its hand on their shoulders. Bar assistant Simon Kemp said: "Staff are too scared to go down to the cellar as there has been times when they feel something brush past, and one guy felt a hand on his shoulder."
