Ghost Photo: The Black Monk

Taken at England’s Eynsford Castle, the photo above shows a black figure lurking near the head of the stairs. But is it a ghost?

Built between 1085 and 1087, Eynsford Castle has long been in ruins and is now an English Heritage site. A tourist snapped this photo last year, and the image soon made the rounds online. According to the man who took the photo, there was no one near the stairs at the time.

“I was quite surprised when I first saw the picture,” the tourist told reporters. “I saw the image with the figure in it and looked on the web. That’s when I read about a monk being seen in area.”

While the photo does seem to show a monk-like figure, skeptics claim it’s nothing more than a hole in the wall. One wrote up a detailed analysis, but then later admitted his hypothesis was wrong.

What do you think of the photo? Is it a real ghost or a feature of the castle walls?
