The Hare & Hounds | Haunted Locations

The Hare & Hounds

The Hare & Hounds pub is located in Newport, Isle of Wight in England.

The pub is around four hundred years of age and was once used as a place of capital punishment.

In 1737 a man by the name of Micah Morey was tried and found guilty at the Hare & Hounds for murdering his grandson. Micah was hung at the pub and his body was left on the gibbet to rot until it was “an offence to eye and nostril”.

Today the gibbet crossbeam can still be seen at the pub with the notch cut into it along with the date of Micah’s hanging.

Reported Paranormal Activity

A ghost has been seen wandering in and around the pub. People have described the phantom to be a male carrying a large axe. It is thought that it is the restless spirit of Micah Morey.
