FROM THE VIDEO ARCHIVE: GHOSTLY GOINGS ON IN THE PACKET HOUSE
The ghost is purported to be of a woman called Mary, who has been seen by staff and customers alike, she is described as wearing a shawl and dressed in Victorian clothing.
The pub dates from the 1820s and is named after the "packet boats" which plied for trade alongside the nearby Bridgewater Canal carrying mail from Worsley to Manchester and vice versa.
The landlords Anthony and Carole and son Stephen have all seen Mary, as well as Carole's mum who works behind the bar. None admit to being the least bit frightened by the ghost and admit to actually looking forward to seeing it!
Carole is contacting a paranormal society to spend the night in the pub with light monitors and sensors in the hope of detecting the spirit of Mary.
If you have any stories relating to ghosts at the pub we would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment below.
