Kings Arms

2 Church Street, Keighley, Haworth

Built on three storeys of local millstone grit, it is a typical, dark Yorkshire building from the early 18th century. At one time, there was a slaughterhouse at the rear of the inn, with the cellars were used by undertakers when the town mortuary was full. Previous proprietors held ‘arvils’ or funeral feasts here. The centrepiece of the food was a coffin shaped currant cake, decorated with black paper flags. Over the years, there have been consistent reports of at least three different men dressed in black Victorian style suits haunting the Kings Arms. There have been many accounts of poltergeist activity and strange sounds from the cellars.
