MYSTERY footprints in the snow have prompted a ghost story at a Huddersfield pub.
Drinkers at The Bulls Head at Blackmoorfoot thought there was something strange about the young man who wandered in late at night.
But they realised there was something even stranger when he left – and his footprints in the snow stopped at a door boarded up many years ago.
Now pub landlord David Dobson is determined to find out the truth about the strange goings-on.
Mr Dobson said: “I know what we saw and it was certainly strange.
“But it’s not the first funny thing to happen. Every member of staff who has worked here has got a story, about footsteps in the upstairs rooms when no-one is there, or sightings of a man in a flat cap sitting in a corner, or impressions that someone else is in a room.
“I believe there is some truth in all of it”.
The latest incident happened late on Thursday night as Mr Dobson was in the bar with friends.
He said: “This chap, who looked a little odd, wandered in and bought a Coca Cola. He sat down in a corner but then left.
“One of my friends said: `There is something odd, I’m going to check’ and followed him to the door.
“He called us all and all we could see in the snow were a line of footprints from the pub door, down the side and ending at a blocked-up door. There were no more prints going away from it.
“He was a man in his 20s or 30s but it was so strange. No-one could see how he left without making prints in the snow”.
The Bulls Head has been a pub for many decades but now Mr Dobson is trying to find out more of the history of the building itself. If you can help contact him on 01484 847225.
