Sparth Road, Clayton Le Moors, Accrington, Lancashire, Clayton-le-Moors
For over twenty years, a ghost with a penchant for slapping women on the bottom has been in residence here. witnesses see him, wearing a long white Macintosh, flat cap, smoking a pipe and usually sitting at a table in the snug. He is believed to be the ghost of a local man, who expired in a road accident near the Royal Oak, or a man who had died in the pub. Even before his sudden death, he had been noted for ogling young women in the pub.
