The Struggler's Inn, Lincoln

Clarke's Dog

The Strugglers Inn, Lincoln is said to be haunted by the ghost of this little fellow. His owner, William Clarke, was executed for murder at Lincoln castle. After the execution the dog used to return to the pub looking for his master, whinning and scratching around. Soon afterward the dog himself died and was stuffed by the landlord. It was then that the spectral hound started being seen around the pub and castle precinct. Sounds of a pitiful, howling hound  have also been heard. The dog was kept at the pub for many years, but can now be seen in the castle museum - illustrating the story of his masters crime.
