The Dominion pub is not in Harborough, but in Glenfield, Leicester. It is a building I investigated by invitation due to the media coverage regarding my film project and research concerning hauntings in Market Harborough. I have included it here for that reason and also for anyone who has a thirst for all things paranormal. The footage shot was not included in the DVD documentary but I may one day upload it to YouTube or Vimeo. The investigation was organised by Andrew J Wright, Leicester’s leading expert on all things paranormal, having written several local books on the subject. The ghost stories here revolve around sightings of a swarthy dark figure, (sometimes seen wearing a waistcoat with no shirt) that the Landlord and staff have nick-named ‘Bert’. The figure is mainly seen in the cellar, although glimpsed in the bar area too. On one occasion, a young boy bumped into something invisible and was literally knocked backwards by the impact, as witnessed by his parents. Another story involves a member of staff also ‘pushed over’ by an unseen hand. The pub guard dog; a ferocious looking Alsatian, refuses to go into the cellar and prefers to just whimper at the top of the staircase leading down to it. The ghostly figure of Bert was seen on several occasions emerging from a solid brick wall in the corridor leading to the cellar.
