Chilling word ghost hunter heard as he was ‘strangled’ in haunted pub

A ghost hunter was so creeped out by "one of the most haunted" pubs in Britain that he cut his visit short.

Tony Ferguson, 37, claims to have felt someone strangle him and heard the Arabic word for demon, as he explored the Ancient Ram Inn in Wotton-under-Edge, Glos.

Joined by the group Ghost2Ghost, Tony from Hampshire said they experienced a range of eerie paranormal activity inside the former boozer on February 29.

Tony, who also works as a personal trainer, said: "I was very sceptical, but there were so many things I couldn't explain.

"The worst was when I felt something around my neck – nobody was there but I felt like I was being strangled."

He added: "I am not normally on edge during investigations but this place felt very eerie and sinister I kept seeing this thing floating above us, it seemed to be following us around.

"At one point we heard someone say the word 'Jinn' which is Arabic for 'spirit' or 'demon'. I saw mist coming towards me, felt a hand on my neck, and heard all kinds of noises I couldn't explain.

"We left two hours early because of how uncomfortable everyone felt – it's one of the most haunted places in the UK by far."

The Ancient Ram Inn is a former inn turned tourist attraction due to its reputation as a paranormal location. It was home to a man named John Humphries before his death in 2017, and many say was plagued by its 'haunted' nature.

It is rumoured that the inn, which is built on an ancient pagan burial ground, was once used to practice witchcraft and devil worship.

People also believe many murders and deaths took place in the house – and the spirits that stayed behind after often make themselves known.

Tony set up his own CCTV to capture any paranormal happenings on camera – and came away with a whole host of spooky footage.

He said: "In the 'witch's room' we saw this orb, a light anomaly, floating towards me and it also showed up on camera. We heard noises and went into the barn area to investigate, and there was this mist coming towards me – but it wasn't cold.

"We have been told that someone had supposedly hanged themselves in that area.

"There were so many banging sounds and we even heard a dragging sound above us, but there was nobody upstairs."

But things grew more and more sinister as the evening progressed.

Tony said: "Then in the living room area, our portal – a device used to connect with the afterlife – said the word 'Jinn' which is Arabic for 'spirit' or 'demon' while the orb floated above our heads.

"At one point the room grew very dark and we heard a very clear "f*** you" in a disembodied man's voice – but we were the only men in the house.

"Then we heard this cat's meow but there were no cats around. The rumours suggest that the witch's cat had died in this house and is supposedly mummified somewhere beneath it.

"There were so many things going on that I just couldn't explain or understand."
