“The butchered landlord”
The Ten Bells in Spitalfields is a pub closely tied to the legend of Jack the Ripper. It is thought that one of his poor victims Annie Chapman had her last drink here before she was murdered. Another of his victims, Mary Kelly, was found butchered nearby.
The pub’s resident ghost is an old man. People sleeping in the rooms upstairs would wake in the middle of the night to find the ghostly figure dressed in Victorian clothing lying next to them. As soon as they screamed the figure would disappear.
He is the ghost of George Roberts, a previous landlord who was murdered with an axe in the early 1900s.
