Chair Moves by Itself in ‘Haunted’ Welsh Pub
“There’s a long-term rumor among the regulars about a woman haunting the pub and people who live in the flats above the pub say there’s strange goings on up there,”
Recently released footage from the Lansdowne Pub in Cardiff shows a piece of furniture with a mind of its own.
When pub manager Hayley Budd sat down at one of the tables to take a break one evening back in July, she had an unexplained encounter that would leave her scratching her head.
While browsing her mobile phone, one of the chairs opposite her can be seen moving all on its own. It is not clear from the video how this happened and there’s no indication that she moved it herself.
“I wasn’t looking at the chair, I was looking at my phone but I saw it out of the corner of my eye,” she said. “I heard it as well so I asked a customer if they had seen anything and they’d also heard the noise.”
“I always try to find the most logical explanation so in the video you can see me looking to see if it was something in my bag that had moved then I was trying to tell myself that maybe it was the wind.”
“I’ve tried to recreate it so many times but there’s no logical explanation. I checked the CCTV to make sure I hadn’t been imagining it.”
“I wasn’t frightened enough to quit my job and run out of there but I was really shocked.”
The building itself has something of a reputation for strange occurrences.
“There’s a long-term rumor among the regulars about a woman haunting the pub and people who live in the flats above the pub say there’s strange goings on up there,” said Budd.
“I’m not scared just because I’ve worked here for eight years and she’s never done anything that’s a cause for concern. She clearly just wants to make herself known.”
