Ram Inn, Potters Pond, Wotton under Edge
The old inn looks as if it has been abandoned. Not so. It has a long and interesting history dating back to the 13th or 14th century, or possibly earlier. The property is owned and occupied by a fascinating old gentleman who purchased it from a brewery in 1968 for 2600. It is said to be haunted by a variety of ghosts, was a haunt of highwaymen and has connections to the local parish church. The owner invited me in to take a look around, something he does with everyone who shows an interest in the place. Despite the auras within the building that reportedly interfere with modern electronics, I was able successfully to obtain a number of images from within the place. The interiors reminded me of Snowshill Manor, a National Trust property stuffed with artefacts from a lifetime's collection. The Ram Inn is not quite so grand or so organised but it is chockablock with old fowling pieces, stuffed animals, clocks, a ship's wheel, an insurance mark, paintings, carvings, furniture, bric a brac and some motorbikes. Structurally the building is in a poor state. It is listed Grade II* LinkExternal link but I couldn't find it on the Buildings at Risk register.
