'Ghost' in castle window

Posted by Daltons chin dimple on Thursday, February 18, 2010

The figure of a ghostly girl appeared in pictures taken by a Lancashire businessman at the Gwrych Castle in Wales. In the picture, a faint image of a woman is seen peeping out of a window of the dilapidated castle and it has been successful in generating widespread interest.

Kevin Horkin had been inspecting the castle in Abergele, North Wales with the aim of purchasing it. Pictures of the ruined building were also taken, although nothing paranormal was witnessed then. However, when the digital photos were downloaded, Kevin Horkin was surprised to see the spooky image of the girl looking out of the first floor window of the castle.

Moreover, the image is gaining huge attention as supposedly the particular floor of the building collapsed years ago and as a result there is actually no platform to stand on the first floor.

Since the spooky pictures have come to light, speculations have been ripe to comprehend the identity of the ‘ghost’ featured in the photos. Researchers who have examined the pictures, have revealed that the image that was spotted in the castle might be that of Winifred, Countess of Dundonald, who inherited that castle in 1894. However, former photographer Harry Moffitt has stated that the spirit might be that of a young servant girl who suffered an untimely death in the estate after falling off from a horse. The Gwrych Castle was built way back in 1819 and has been abandoned since 1985. However, the building is known for its paranormal activities and is counted among Britain’s most haunted sites.

Clearly a ripoff of the Patterson film. And it's, like, totally not even real. The ripoff, I mean. The Patterson film is as real as the Zapruder film. Realer, maybe. Definitely a reeler.

This is at least as real as the Patterson film.

Did I ever post the Hampton Court doorway ghost picture?

I'll see if I can dig out some info on Fort Amhurst, it's a Napoleonic Fort built into a hillside a couple of towns over from me and it is a bit of an epicentre of spooky goings on. I'm a bit agnostic on the whole ghost thing but I spent the night in the tunnels at Fort Amhurst and damn near sh*t myself!

I am, however, afraid of Ray Parket Junior's baggy pants!

Hampton Court Ghost:

Security staff heard alarms ringing near an exhibition hall, indicating fire doors had been opened. But on investigation they found the doors closed.

Perplexed, they examined CCTV footage, and that is when it got spooky.

The cameras showed the heavy doors popping open but no one there. Then, suddenly, the long- coated figure appeared and slammed the doors shut.

The guards were told the same thing happened at the same time - about 1pm - the day before.

To add to the mystery, the doors also flew open at the same time the very next day. But the ghostly figure has been spotted only once.

The suspected spook has not just been sighted by CCTV. Australian tourists also claim to have seen a ghost near the exhibition area. The palace, in West London, has ruled out its guides as suspects because they do not enter that part of the building.

Here is the pic....

Spooky!

Does this spooky image show ghost boy watching builders demolish his old school?

John Fores, 47, insists the spectral figure was not present when he took the picture of the part-demolished brick building.

But when he looked back at the images he spotted the boy, aged around eight with short hair and wearing a dark top, standing on the right of the picture looking into the camera.

Mr Fores was carrying out demolition work on the site at Anlaby Primary School, near Hull, East Yorkshire. He took several pictures on his mobile phone to record the demolition work.

He said: 'I took the pictures just after noon. I took a few and at the time didn't notice anything.

'When I put the pictures on the computer and I saw the figure, the hairs on the back of my neck stuck up.

'I couldn't believe what I had seen. I didn't believe in ghosts, but since I got this picture I am not so sure.'

The image of the young boy is exceptionally clear, but the builder insists he has not altered the picture in any way.

The school, which is still in use, was built in 1936. Caretaker Gordon Bradshaw, 54, said it has a reputation for being haunted. He said: 'I've been here 29 years and the kids have always said there is a ghost at the school. I've never seen anything though.'

Rob Taylor, of the Hull Paranormal Ghost Society, said: 'I have never seen anything as clear and as distinctive as the boy in the picture. 'I am aware of people using mobile phones and getting orbs and misty images. It needs further investigating.'

Here's a picture I took of my grandparents' bedroom window after we stripped the outer wall:

It's a little creepy, but I think it's just a trick of the light.

Chislehurst Caves is between my work and my house.....

Apologies for the quality of the transcript. It's copied and pasted, plus names etc. have been redacted.

"The Challenge

Sources indicate that "The Challenge" had been running since about 1961 at Chislehurst Caves. The idea was that once a year on "Halloween" the Caves would hold a competition with a prize for anybody who would sleep an entire night in the caves without running out scared. The original prize fund was a grand total of just £5 (not a great deal today).

On 2 November 1985 two tour guides (who shall; in this report remain annoymous), were supposed to be taking "The Challenge" as a charity event. However because Halloween, that year, fell on a thursday; they decided to take the challenge on the weekend. Before you ask, yes we do know the real names of these two guides but to keep their identity secure we are not releasing this information.

:: Testimonials (of the Guides)

The following is an actual testimonial given by the guides during the investigation shortly after the event. These testimonials are word-for-word and were originally given with the rights to publish. We will referer to them as Guide A and Guide B, and all other names have been removed or replaced with .

Guide A:
"The challenge had been banned for a long time, and after years of talking about doing it we decided to set it up. We had to get permission from
as she had banned the challenge because of past events. Eventually, she relented, but only on the condition that two of us went down. We both had to be guides as she stipulated that no member of the general public would be allowed to do the challenge, as she considered it too dangerous. There was originally meant to be four of us that night, but two of them fell out broke his leg and the other had to work during the weekend. It looked like we weren't going to do it, but because we had been talking about it for so long and wanted to see for ourselves what it was all about, we decided to go ahead. I've never had any fear about the pool area, I might have had second thoughts about doing it if it had been in Pug-end though. I did actually offer to do it on my own but
wouldn't allow it. We were also sponsored to raise money for a charity that night as well."

"We started a couple of hours late on the night of the challenge as was working in the caves that day and I was working the next. I had planned to try and get a few hours sleep in the caves before I started working down here as a guide the next day. I didn't want to be conducting the tours half asleep.."

"I remember we had a little firework display outside and then went over to the pub for a pint, we only had one we weren't drunk of anything like it when we left the pub and ended up going into the caves about eight-o-clock. We should have done six-until-six as that was the original challenge but eight-to-eight was good enough.. There was supposed to be about eight people sleeping in the old shed waiting for our triumphant emergence in the morning but it turned out that just
and her manager
waited for us that evening."

"We walked into the caves and locked the door behind us. Now nobody could get in and we could only come out by using the keys that dropped into his jean's pocket. Part of the challenge was that we had to be apart all night and seperated by at least fifty feet. We set up a lot of candles down there and they remained lit throughout the challenge. I decided to settle nearer to the pool and was around the corner at the end of the passage way out of sight, somewhere near

's carving, where he set up his sleeping bag. We decided to carve a plaque on the wall commemorating the evening. We started work on this carving not long after we arrive but it ended up taking us ages. When we finally had finished we had a chat and the time was getting on for two-o-clock in the morning. We set up the tape-recording that had insisted upon in case anything happened and decided to sleep in shifts and I told to go to bed as he had been working all day and must have been pretty tired by now. I remember telling me his legs were very cold, he said he was feeling cold from the waist down, so there was more reason for him to take the first shift of sleeping." " moved off to his sleeping bag and I set up a camp-bed that I had brought with me. About fifteen minutes after we had settled down, I remember I was just about to open one of the four cans of Carlsberg that I had taken with me when I heard a series of footsteps. I didn't take any notice as I thought it might be moving around and then suddenly a big scream came from the passageway. I was startled at first and didn't respond immediately. It took a few seconds for my brain to get working and realise what I had just heard. I got out of bed and called out, but didn't answer. I then ran around to where was and he was flailing about. He looked as if he was fighting someone. At this point it looked like it could have been an epileptic fit, but then he went quiet. Then he opened his eyes and looked straight at me and his face wasn't like , the face was taut and cracks appeared in the skin like a very old man's face." "'s face was usually plump, but now he looked ravaged and emaciated. His eyes were the worst, completely red, they glowed like red light-bulbs it was looking right at me, a really horrible face. Suddenly he took a swing at me. He was out of the sleeping bag now and there was frothing at the mouth, like a fountain coming out a green and yellow bubbling, just flowing out of his mouth and all over him. He was starting to get aggressive and I was now getting very scared indeed. I couldn't get out of the caves because he had the keys in his jeans pocket and he was now growling at me, vile guttural noises like an animal. He wasn't even trying to talk, just growling. It wasn't like an epileptic fit, he was a different person and I was very scared. Every time I tried to coax him to give me the keys he would growl and swipe at me. I don't think I have ever felt like I have been facing death, but this time I did, I felt like he was going to kill me. It was bloody evil. It didn't look like him, it looked like a very, very old and evil man. I decided to leave the keys and go to an emergency buzzer that we had set up, I was praying that it would be working. I ran to the buzzers location, my mind was racing. I pressed the buzzer once and waited for a response, there was no answer. I pressed again, as if the harder I pressed it, the more noise it would make, but still there was no reply. 'Come on' I thought, 'for God's sake answer'. I pressed again, one long good buzz and 's voice answered." 'Yes, yes?' I said, 'Dave here, let me out!' and she replied 'oh, you haven't finished yet?' 'I have!', I shouted, 'let me out!'. " I was panicking, the five minutes it took her to let me out, seemed like an hour. and opened the door looking sick with worry and I said 'something's happened to ' and the three of us hurried down the caves in 's direction. When we found him, he was still acting strange, like an animal crawling on all fours. He had calmed down alot by now and he didn't want to move but insisted that we call an ambulance and get him to safety as soon as possible. She looked terrified. I asked to go and call the ambulance but didn't move he was so scared he said 'I am not going anywhere on my own'. So I said 'Well stay here with me and can go', but she didn't remember the way back. So I said 'OK, you two stay here and I'll go', but I was worried leaving them with because he was still getting aggressive. said 'Don't worry , I'll keep the big lock in my hand as a weapon if anything happens.' So I left them and ran to call an ambulance. I was gone only for ten minutes and when I returned was returning to his old self. :: Further Evidence The above testamonial is only one of many that we have aquired regarding the whole incident. We have only published one to give you an idea about what happened. But you must appreciate this is only one perspective. There are many others. There is also a recording of the entire incident on tape. :: The Tape As yet we have not been able to aquire the tape to listen to it and take samples, but hopefully we will in the future as our source of the information has a copy of the cassette tape. Our source informs us that the tape basically plays silence for a while once they have settled. You will then hear a series of footsteps and a loud scream. This is then followed by groaning noises and heavy breathing. You can also hear the coaxing that gave to during the experience. later talks refers to the tape saying that he could hear something that sounded like an electric buggy coming up and going past the tape recorder. The noise got louder the more aggresive got and just before screams there is the sound of something padding on the floor like a large animal. There are no electrical devices in the caves that could have made either noise. :: The Excorcism After the fatal night on 2nd November 1985, continued to have poltergeist activity in the caves. Continuously finding locks being thrown around, chalk was being thrown at visitors, cabling was torn down, lamps were thrown all over the lamp room and they would regularly have to clear up in the mornings before tours. She decided that enough was enough and called in a preist in to perform an excorcism. I am intrigued by this because if indeed an excorcism was performed then the church would have a record of it somewhere. I am yet to find this information. :: Conclusion If at all you can call this a conclusion, then I guess read on. It is more a summary of the after events. This case is by far inconclusive. Many people wanted to do the challenge after the incident because it was publicised by Channel 4 television in a documentary called "Is anybody out there" which featured the caves. But nobody has been allowed to do it since because was serverly frightened that night. All the challenges have had their experiences around the period between two and three-o-clock in the morning. Some people, however, only lasted minutes, or managed to catch the guide up as he was leaving them. The Police Ghost Hunt in 1976 consisted of four policemen from a local station, but it wasn't taken seriously as they stayed together and got drunk. Drink was originally forbidden on the challenge. If anybody has any further information they would like to contribute to this case, please contact us."

My grandmother thinks it's more, though. She's convinced the reflection--or whatever it is--looks almost exactly like she did as a kid. She thinks it's the "impression" of her unborn older sister, or some shit.

Forgive me for pointing out the obvious, but including an image of "ghost seal" highlights the ridiculousness of the idea of ghosts, in general.

Let's jump, for a second, to cryptids. Here's a picture of the dreaded hippolykos--a half-horse, half-wolf creature that only appears on a full moon:

It looks like a rabid llama.

Where did you get that picture, Goiter? Who took it?

Out back in the countryside where my parents live, there's a strip of land about 70 yards wide that straddles the freight lines that used to run from Milwaukee to Minneapolis/St. Paul. The tracks there are long since defunct, riddled with weeds and long blades of grass.

Sometimes my buddies and I would drive out there in the evening and park about a half a mile from the tracks to wander around and get drunk.

One night we were drinking and laughing when suddenly it seemed we heard the whistle of an oncoming train. We ran towards the tracks to see where it could be coming from, but there was no headlamp, or any light whatsoever to be seen.

The same sound cried out again, this time closer, and seemed more of an irregular, screeching warble coming from behind us.

We spun around and... we saw that THING you have a picture of there, looking at us with its glowing eyes from out of a nestle of trees.

I don't need to tell you, we ran like hell back to the car.

So, I'll ask again: where did you get THAT FUCKING PHOTO GOITER?!

Think of me as a megaphone directed at God's eardrum, my child.

I killed a ghost once. I didn't get a picture though, so you'll have to take my word for it.

It's a screen capture from a show my parents used to watch when they were younger than I am.

It was quality stuff.

It was on the air almost as long as Gunsmoke.

I think the ghost of Lorne Greene told me to watch Bonanza once.
