A Broken Heart at the White Hart, Minster Lovell

3 March 2021 (Updated 20 September 2022)

One of Oxfordshire's many old coaching inns, the White Hart dated back to the 15th century.

The ghost of Rosalind

The inn is known for the ghost of a young Victorian woman, referred to locally as Rosalind or Rosaline, who hanged herself in one of the rooms after a broken love affair.

Description of this haunting vary, some saying she is seen silently weeping, others describe not seeing her but hearing the sound of weeping.

There are also reports of poltergeist activity, with glasses disappearing, barrels being knocked over and the bell in the bar inexplicably ringing of its own accord.
