Supposedly haunted, The Hanged Spider pub is located in the sleepy village of Double-Pointed.

The ghost is purportedly to be that of an unpopular sixteenth century nobleman

Caught in bed with the landlord's daughter, he was dragged back to Humpbuckle Manor and hanged on a tree overlooking the ocean.

Even in the sixteenth century, Humpbuckle-on-Sea will come and get you ... although I can't say that I don't understand how he got himself into this particular situation ... people ought to know better anywhere around Humpbuckle by now, but, hey ... what would we read if people got it together? Again, well done!

Thank you! The character does appear in a previous story (one of the 6 in 1 weekend freewrites) about Humpbuckle Manor - prompt "spiderman"! I brought him back from the dead... sort of! :)

Only in Humpbuckle can a character be brought back to be killed AGAIN! One horrible death is not enough!
