Rather interesting Holywell facts
Did you know that the Old Ferryboat Inn at Holywell near St Ives has been serving alcohol since at least 560AD, making it (though as with so many such claims others dispute the honour) the oldest inn still in use in Britain? It hosts a pretty ancient ghost too, the spirit of a girl Juliet whose death in 1050 is commemorated by a stone slab in the bar floor – the pub expanded over the site of her grave it seems.
