Ghosthunters Find Torquay Museum Ghost

A ghost hunt at the Torquay Museum in Devon was successful as one of the hunter capture the ghostly image of a woman with his camera.

The image clearly shows a middle aged woman dress in clothes from an older era. Museum staff now say that they are terrified after this spooky photograph proves what they have believed for a long time; that the museum is haunted.

The photo was taken during a ghost hunting evening at Torquay Museum in Devon with all those present claiming nobody else was in the room when it was taken.

The image was taken in the museum’s Old Devon Farmhouse Gallery, a mock-up display of a cottage filled with 300-year-old artifacts and furniture.

Staff and friends took part in the hunt and were randomly taking photos only spotting the woman when looking back through the images later.

Carl Smith said, “We saw something in the middle of the photo and when we adjusted the contrast we clearly saw the woman.”

“It was a bit of a surprise and pretty creepy.”

“From the angle of the photograph it looks like she is submerged into the floor, almost like she is below floor level.”

“There was no-one else present when the photo was taken so we are at a loss to explain it.”

“It is a bit of a mystery, and there seems to be no other explanation.”

The snap was taken last May, but Carl only discovered it after he was going through photos while preparing for the next paranormal Night at the Museum event later this month.

He said the photo was taken by him close midnight in front of the fireplace, in the ole farm house room, saying, “Most of the equipment in the Old Farmhouse was left to us by a benefactor, and the oldest chair in the collection has been dated at around 300 years old.”

“All of the furniture and equipment has had a lot of human interaction, and maybe this is where the energy has come from.”

“We were very excited about the picture. We were taking photos all over the place, and it wasn’t until afterwards when we examined them more closely that we noticed it, which was quite spooky.”

“We’ve had a lot of spooky activity at the museum. Books will just fly off the shelves in the shop and people have said they have spotted a Victorian lady in a blue dress.”

The museum was founded in 1844 and its highlight is the mummified remains of a four-year-old boy from Ancient Egypt.”
