The Cooperage Pub - Haunted History

The Cooperage Pub, Newcastle

Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear

It's the alleyway outside of the Cooperage Pub on Newcastle Quayside that is said to be haunted. The Grade II listed timber-framed building closed as a pub in 2013, but the area outside the pub is said to be haunted by a man named Henry Hardwick.

It's believed that Henry was trying to escape a group of thugs who were attempting to kidnap him in order to put him to work as crew aboard a ship, but the gang caught up with him in the alleyway. It seems Henry didn't want to go willingly and the gang ended up beat him to death in the dark alley. Ever since, a man dressed in Edwardian clothing, believed to be Henry, has been seen close to the spot where he was murdered.
