Market Place, Bawtry, Doncaster
The Crown Hotel was built for the heavy coaching traffic and as a posting house. It is home to several ghosts. Witnesses see an aged monk in a belted habit, who haunts the stables. It was there that he died many years ago. Wandering the dining rooms is the ghost of a serving girl. Her lover took life in a fit of temper and rage. A paranormal team people called in to investigate such supernatural phenomena. They reported finding a woman walking along the upper corridor, with a ghostly young child sitting in the corner of the restaurant. Finally, there is the Crinoline Lady who died in a fire many years ago. She haunts the old wing... Incidentally, the curious village name is from Old English Baltry, a tree rounded like a ball.
