The Kings Arms
Bidford Rd, Cleeve Prior, Evesham, Worcestershire
An exotic ghost has taken up residence at this fabulous, centuries old village inn. Some years ago, a local family had a pair of peacocks, which roamed the village at will. The family left Cleeve Prior. However, the birds remained behind. They were fed by villagers and occasionally caused a serious obstruction of traffic. Much of their time was spent outside the King’s Arms, with when they died, they roamed the village as phantom peacocks. The male took up a ghostly residence within the pub. He is often heard with piercing cries in the night. This is much to the consternation of people staying at this pub. There is also an ancient pigeon loft at the pub, but, mercifully, it is silent.
