2, 9 June and 13 July ** ONLY A FEW SEATS AVAILABLE **  

Welcome friends, come share a carriage with us, as we travel across what can be a dark and dangerous moor! The year is 1794 and our journey from Grosmont to Pickering will wind its way within a mile of one of England’s most famous smuggling Inns, the ‘Waggon and Horses’.

A man has been murdered, though his remains will not be discovered for nearly two hundred years. Standing now in ruins, the ‘Saltersgate’, as the Inn became known, kept its secret well until the hearth chilled and a spirit was set free to haunt the valley.
