Ghost in church

GHOST IN CHURCH

Ref: C156/15/KFL

The Reverend K. F. Lord was photographing the interior of his church at Newby, North Yorkshire, in the early 1960s, and saw nothing unusual at the time. It was only when he developed the films that he found a ghost on one frame, an eerie hooded figure standing close to the altar.

Lady of Raynham

THE BROWN LADY OF RAYNHAM, 1936

Ref: C295/67

Raynham Hall in Norfolk was said to be haunted by a woman in a brown dress; author Captain Marryat even fired his gun at her! In 1936 two men photographing the interior of the house saw something on the stairs and quickly took a picture.

Wem town hall ghost

WEM TOWN HALL GHOST, 1995

Ref: C485/2/APO'R

Tony O'Rahilly photographed a fire at Wem Town Hall in Shropshire, on 19 November 1995, and found what appears to be a ghostly girl on one of the photographs (enlargement of figure shown here). Links have been suggested with a fire which gutted Wem in 1677, caused by a young girl accidentally setting fire to a thatched roof with a candle.
