Ghost Photo: The Black Monk of Pontefract

Taken at a famously haunted home in England, this photo appears to show an odd figure reflected in the mirror. Could it be the spirit known as the Black Monk of Pontefract?

In 1966, a couple with two children, ages 15 and 12, moved into a home in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, England. What followed was “the most violent haunting in all of Britain.”

Unexplained activity in the home included levitating objects, slashed photographs, and physical abuse from an unseen entity. One night, the entity grabbed the family’s daughter by the throat and dragged her up the stairs. On another occasion, the adults in the home awoke to see a black-robed hooded figure hovering over their bed.

In 2012, the haunting was featured in the British horror film When the Lights Went Out. It was also the subject of a book titled Poltergeist!. Today, the home is open to paranormal investigators such as Ghostnspectors Paranormal who took this photo in 2016.

Skeptics point out that the white figure could be anything from dust to an out-of-focus insect on the camera’s lens.¬†What do you believe?

Ghost Photo: Lady of the River

What do you see when you look at this photo? Some believe the white figure is an ordinary person, but the man who took the picture isn’t so sure.

John Anderson snapped the photo along the banks of the River Trent in Burton, England. Anderson was fishing on a boat with his son when they noticed the silent figure.

“Whatever it was seemed to appear and disappear too quickly to be a person, so I don’t really know what it could have been,” Anderson told the BurtonMail. “I guess there are just some things out there that cannot be explained.”

Ghost Photo: The Lady in Black

A reader writes:

“My son caught this ghost on camera when we were in Savannah this past August. I really wanted to share it with someone. We believe she is either an African-American servant girl, or maybe Civil War nurse? Please let us know what you all think. I’m not sure of the building the ghost is standing by. We were walking down the street along the river and all of the shops. It was River Street, I think. I would love to know what building it is.”
