Ghosts Caught on U.K. Pub’s CCTV?

ghost video

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.”

This well-known ghost photo taken at the Fleet Air Arm Centre in Yelverton, England may look unremarkable, but the woman in aircraft was reportedly alone at the time of the pic. So who’s the seemingly-faceless man beside her?

Ghost Picture of the Day: The Ghost at Crowley Hall

haunted crowley hall

A renovation crew reportedly found this photo at England’s Crowley Hall. Crowley Hall once served as a home for the criminally insane, and legend has it the head practitioner, Dr. Bernard Leys, abused his patients and subjected them to experimental procedures. The hospital closed after Leys’ death and sat vacant for nearly 20 years. In 1970, Crowley Hall reopened as a children’s hospital, and rumors of strange noises, apparitions, and even attacks surrounded the facility. The children’s hospital eventually moved to a newer facility, but haunting rumors persist.

Here’s the trailer for a documentary about paranormal activity at Crowley Hall. What do you think of the photo and the stories?

Update on “The Anguished Man”

Remember the creepy story of the haunted ‘Anguished Man‘ painting? Here’s an update from the owner:

“I thought you might be interested in the latest “Anguished Man” news. I recently moved in with my parents temporarily and obviously took the painting with me. It was only in the house for a few days when the noises started, the same noises I had previously experienced. Then, on the third night, my father fell down the stairs, the same way my son did at the other house. Thankfully, he was unhurt, but I have now moved the painting back into storage.

I have been working closely with John Blackburn and Ian Lawman of Mysteria Paranormal Events. I’ve taken the painting to some of the allegedly most haunted locations in the UK, including 35 Stonegate at York and Chillingham Castle in Northumberland.

It was on the evening of 18th May 2013 at Chillingham Castle that a group of people experienced events that were both terrifying and unexplainable. None of the guests were prepared for what was about happen in the early hours of Sunday morning.
