Spread Eagle Hotel And Spa
South Street, Midhurst
Originally a hunting lodge, one part of the inn dates from about 1430 with half timbering and lattice windows. In the main bedroom is a separate wig powdering room, used by travellers over the years, and bearing the date 1430 on the narrow black door. It is near the door of this room that witnesses have seen the ghost of an elderly man with a bald head. Described as wearing a judicial uniform of scarlet robe, fur facings, black cravat and waistband with a scarlet hood hanging back over his shoulders this fits that of a High Court judge of many years ago.
