Bones of Sacrificed Children Were Found
Ancient Ram Inn (Ghost Adventures) - The team checks an inn where bones of sacrificed children were found. The Ancient Ram Inn is a Grade II listed building and a former pub located in Wotton-under-Edge, a market town within the Stroud district of Gloucestershire, England.

It is believed to be one of the most haunted hotels in the country. This famous inn is owned by and the home to John Humphries.

It has been owned by many people since 1145 to present date. Many people lived here either as a tenant or over night guests. This inn was said to have also been owned by the local St. Mary's Church when first built.

Built in around 1145 over a 5000 year old pagan burial ground, The Ancient Ram Inn is the oldest building in Wotton-Under-Edge. No wonder this building is a National Treasure.

Life at the Ram started in the early 11th century but not much is known before 1145.  From 1145 it was a Church House for an unknown period.

The time between 1145 and 1350 is a little speculative but the known facts are; Predominantly a Church House, Housed Masons for constructing the near-by St. Mary's Church and possibly housed Slaves and/or children for the same purpose.

In 1350 The Ram (not know by that name yet) was bought by Maurice De Bathe. Tenants Peter Le Couk and his wife Margaret resided there for an unknown period. The property stayed in the name of Maurice De Bathe for 171 years.

The Ram changed hands frequently from here right up to 1968 where the current owner John Humphries now resides along side many uninvited guests. Most of which are previous owners or visitors!

From 1350 to 1820 it was known mostly as "Tan House" or "The Tan House" but records show the name "The Old Sun" crop up a few times but details of when it may have been known as this so far remains unknown. From 1820 onwards the Ram was Brewery Property with various Brewers and Landlords.
