The Tite Inn

Mill End, Chadlington, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, Millend

A strange name for a pub and there is nothing similar to it in the dictionary. Locals think to derive from a name for an ancient water spring. The pub dates from the 1600s. It exhibits ghostly manifestations. these include an elderly woman, witnessed for the most part in the cellars. She is dressed in very old-fashioned garb. Reports think that she is connected with the Battle of Edgehill that took place in 1642. A special investigation into the belief in witchcraft was conducted in the area before the First World War (1914-1918). Many local people said they believed in witchcraft, familiars and their communication with the Devil. The villagers, who were questioned, claimed that in living memory, three Chadlington alleged witches had been buried upright, with no more than their heads above ground. This was to oblige them to confess.
