WITH fans awaiting the third instalment of the Ghostbusters movie franchise — The Bolton News reporters Liam Thorp and Jeremy Culley made their case for starring roles as they set out on a ghost hunting mission at Bolton’s haunted pub
As we toured the inside of the pub, my usually unflappable colleague Mr Culley could be seen to become slightly nervous.
He said: “There is certainly something a little bit spooky about Ye Olde Man and Scythe.
“Whether it’s simply the age of the building or the unease created by some of the gruesome displays, I certainly didn’t feel comfortable when the lights went out.”
After a short while, we realised this would be very different to our usual trips to the pub so we decided to record our experiences throughout the evening.
Perhaps the spookiest moment was when a glass smashed inexplicably behind the bar.
Using our combined journalistic knowhow we agreed that this must be the work of a ghoulish, and quite frankly, destructive presence in the pub.
Sufficiently spooked, we headed for the exit — but not before we were treated to some pasties by the pub’s manager Tony Dooley, who recognised that all this ghost hunting lark can really build up an appetite.
