The Busby Stoop Inn is a very old inn. The gallows refer to a man called Busby who was convicted of murder, and dragged from his chair in the pub to be hanged on a gibbet across the road. The chair remained in the inn for many a year, but anyone sitting in it was 'assured' of misfortune. The chair is now in a museum in Thirsk, suspended from the ceiling, so that no one can sit in it.
