Supper & Ghost Hunt Bull ‘I ‘th Thorn | Buxton Ghost Hunts


Ghost Hunt Bull I’ Th’ Thorn

Join Haunted Evenings on a Ghost Hunt at this fantastic location, starting the night with a delicious 2 course meal. Over the years there have been numerous reports of paranormal activity, so we decided to investigate the spooky goings on for halloween weekend!

About the location…Standing high and solitary on the old Roman Road between Buxton and Ashbourne, The Bull i’ th’ Thorn has for more than 500 years been a welcoming resting place for travellers by horse or stage-coach.

Many centuries ago the Roman Road from Little Chester to Buxton was known as “The Street”, running through the uplands near Hurdlow and Pomeroy, it it now called the A515.

Over 700 years ago there was a farmhouse alongside the Roman Road and marked on the maps of the time. In 1472 it became a hostelry called “The Bull”.

In 1654 the name changed to “Hurdlow House” and various old documents make reference to “Hurdlow Thorn”…evidently, the name “Bull ‘i th’ Thorn” is derived from a combination of these past associations.

During the 18th and 19th Centuries, this was a prominent Coaching Inn on the Derby to Manchester route. Possibly on the same itinerary as “The Red Lion” at Leek.

Inside, Tudor paneling – bearing carvings of 1642 and 1742 – and the stone flagged floor illustrate the genuine antiquity of this charming old Inn.
