The Dirty Bottles is reputed to have a curse on it. The story of the dirty bottles from which it gets its name comes from the 18th century when a landlord is said to have gone to clean them and dropped down dead of a heart attack. The same thing happened to the next landlord so his wife proclaimed that they were cursed. The story stuck and they’ve been locked away since. No wonder they get a lot of interest from ghost hunters!
