The Plough Inn

Aynho Rd, Adderbury, Banbury, Oxfordshire

Just outside the village, amidst farm fields, the Plough is a thatched inn on two storeys in yellow stone with outstanding bay windows and much in the way of inside beaming. Travelling magistrates sat on local cases and brought their own whipping blocks, ducking stools and stocks for punishments on the village green. Part of the village exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include George Cobb, who said four oaks on his land near this pub should never be felled after his death. He promised revenge on anyone who disobeyed him. Shortly after Cobb’s death, the trees were felled and he has haunted the area since in his funeral coach. His ghost has further been observed sitting in one of the bars. Whilst coincidentally, a phantom coach and horses stands outside awaiting him.
