The Ostrich Inn, Buckinghamshire

The Ostrich Inn, Buckinghamshire

The Ostrich Inn, High Street, Colnbrook, Nr Slough, Berks, SL3 0JZ
Nearest tube station--- Heathrow

In the shadow of one of London’s ghastliest locations, one of England’s oldest pubs is on the market – together with a ghastly history.

he Ostrich Inn was once by the Jarmans, a husband and wife who would murder their guests by dropping them through a trapdoor in a bedroom, plunging them into a vat of boiling liquid and, ultimately, their deaths. There have recently been reports of strange occurences, possibly the ghosts of murdered ghosts trapped within the walls of the pub. A detailed history of the Ostrich Inn, by one G. Daniel, titled The Ostrich Inn, Colnbrook, Bucks: Its Place in History, apparently appeared in 1969, but there is no copy in the British Library and I have not been able to lay my hands on one elsewhere.

(The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
