HAUNTING discoveries have been made by primary school pupils exploring a hotel.
As part of a school history project, Year Six pupils from St Mary's in Dunmow were taken on a tour of the Saracens Head Hotel after learning that a number of ghostly figures have been seen hanging around the 16th Century venue.
And a handful of the children who visited the cellar, rooms, bar and restaurant claimed to have seen some ghostly figures lurking.
Hotel manager, Paul Newson, said: "The building is supposed to have three ghosts among its residents, including a small boy who plays with a musical box, a woman in a large dress and also horses have been seen and heard where the old stables used to be."

The children took part in the tour as part of their current studies into the history and future of Great Dunmow.

"The staff at the Saracens kindly invited us down for a tour so the pupils could see the building in detail. It was a really worthwhile activity that brings the subject to life for them."
Next week the children will be off to take a tour of the shoe shop on the High Street.
