Ghost Photo: King of the Castle

Taken at England’s Barnard Castle, this photo shows a white figure lurking near the fortress’s stone walls. Could it be a ghost?

Construction of Barnard Castle began in 1095, and the ancient castle was once a favorite of King Richard III. Today, it is an English Heritage site. Video from an adjoining pub allegedly shows “orbs, figures, faces, spectral movement, and all manners of weird going on.” Check it out here.

Ghosts Caught on U.K. Pub’s CCTV?

A reader shared this video from the Golden Lion Inn in Barnard Castle, England. He writes:

“The spooky film shows countless orbs, figures, faces, spectral movement and all manner of weird goings on. But the most eerie scene is of the landlady going through a door and a ghost appears to come through her back. Two other phantom figures disappear as the door closes through them.”

Check out the video below. Do you agree with his assessment?

Update: Here’s some additional context the reader sent in.

“The pub was built in 1679 with stone from the castle it backs onto. The castle was built between 1112 and 1132 and has a Roman road running up the side of it. There is also CCTV footage of ghosts coming over the wall from the castle where orbs have also been seen.

The pub it sited on what was the local people’s entrance to the castle and many sieges and battles have spread onto the town street through this entrance. In one such siege, where the town was surrounded by 1,200 horsemen and 3,000 foot soldiers, 226 locals jumped from the high battlements in surrender. Of those, 35 were killed or seriously injured. From those uninjured, many were hung for treason. Traitor’s tree, once used for hangings, still stands just outside the castle. The execution block and gallows were a few hundred yards further up the Roman road. The town is steeped in history having had Charles Dickens and Oliver Cromwell as visitors.

Barnard Castle is claiming to be the world’s most haunted town with 93 ghost sightings by the town’s 5,500 inhabitants.”
