The White Hart

Worthgate Place, Canterbury, Kent

Although it now presents as a modern pub, the building has history over two centuries. It is on the ruins of St Mary’s church and the small car park adjacent to the White Hart was at one time a graveyard. The tombstones from that period now line up against one wall of the White Hart. The beer cellars of the pub were once employed as a temporary mortuary. There was a body chute from ground level. On another side of the White Hart is an old Roman burial ground. It comes as no surprise that it exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include the ghosts of yesteryear. Employees working here have heard moaning and odd black shapes, appearing as figures. Other witnesses have reported that the ghosts are men and women wearing Victorian style clothing of suits and dresses or grey shrouds.
