The Red Lion, Merchantgate, York
The Red Lion is one of the oldest pubs in York that can be traced back as far as the 13th century and it is a highly active place. It is located off Fossgate, in the city centre in an area historically renowned for prostitution, gangs and a safe area for priests during the period of the Reformation. It was a well known Coaching Inn and held court sessions here. Much of the building from the 15th century remains intact.
It also has strong links to Dick Turpin and his gang who are said to have spent time here and have reputedly used the priest-hole within the building to hide from the law or other gangs. The pub was also used for formal and informal court sessions, the latter with hangings in the old stables, which are still present today.
Our pre-investigations have given excellent EVP’s as well as other interactions with the team and this promises to be a fantastic investigation.
We have access to all areas of the pub including the priest hole and the 13th Centry fire place. This is the place where Dick Turpin frequented.
We will use traditional methods with our Medium and also some more modern techniques.
Because of the size of the building we have very limited places available for this location.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
