    I'm sure there are more spirits to the place than just the optics ;) A night in the roof void may just prove fruitful.

    Lovely piece of history mate :)

    Room 29 at the Bell Inn, Sadler Gate, which used to be a hotel, is said to be haunted by young servant girl murdered by the Jacobite army in 1745.

    And I have a 12' wanger. :-)

    Good report, the building is amazing-its such a shame what happened with its closure [and very close to home for me] but I heard it was on its last legs anyway. They now run some similar place just round the corner [the previous landlords].
    Its seen some good US punk bands play while I have been in Derby. Good pics mate, i bet it was like a maze up there...

    Hence the reason,I did not elaborate on local "folklore" about room 29.
    Its good for the local tourist trade I suppose.

    Personally,I/we visit places with an historians eyes and piece it together "how it used to be".

    I try to avoid putting anything about "reported or documented ghost stuff" on here as I know it is frowned upon:).

    Thanks for the input though guys, all views welcomed and respected!!

    Yes it was a shame indeed.No one has "apparently"cared for the place judging by its interior state and to boot its yet another Grade II listed building in Derby going to waste

    It was a maze of corridors and rooms and I am certain we only covered two thirds of it due to failing light as torches were not enough.

    Always used to do the Sadler Gate circuit at Christmas etc, so holds some fond memories for us:)
