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.

The U.K.’s Mirror shared this photo on Halloween. It seems a father snapped a photo of his daughter at Tamworth Castle Grounds in Staffordshire, England and captured two ghosts in the background.

“I can’t quite make out what they are, but it looks to me like two figures,” said Richard Jones, 38. “It could be two knights carrying a shield – which would make sense as it was by the castle. What’s so strange to me is that there is absolutely no color – it’s all white.”

Like most castles, Tamworth has its share of ghost stories. Legend has it a 9th-century nun haunts the historic structure, while tales of disembodied footsteps, swirling mists, and mysterious figures are also common.
