Another ghost photograph in the media, I’ve been reluctant to comment on this one previously. I’m an English Civil War re-enactor (I’m not in the footage in case you’re wondering but I do recognise a few faces), and a paranormal investigator, so this sounds right up my street.
With this one, the history is spot on, and there’s definitely something odd going on in the photo that’s a whole lot more interesting than an orb of light.
However, much as I want this one to be a genuine ghost caught on camera, I can see a touch of the inkblots in this one. If you compare the photo on the BBC footage with the shot at 00:55 looking at the same spot in broad daylight, you can see the same lines in the trees and hedges – sadly. I can’t post stills of this without breaching copyright, but if you compare them yourself, you’ll see what I mean.
Remember: keep your equipment dry, and your coffee strong.
