Is This An Image Of A Pub Ghost

Mike Woollas who runs Ye Olde White Harte in Hull, East Yorks is a sceptic, but he’s not quite sure what to make of this picture.

Others are said to believe it’s a ghost of an old English Civil War soldier working on plans to block King Charles I.

The grainy photo is said to show the ghosts head, two eyes, moustache and an arm outstretched, but is very hard to make out.

Ye Olde White Harte is famous because it was used as the meeting place way back in 1642 between the governor of Hull, Sir John Hotham, and the burghers, during which they agreed to refuse King Charles I entry into the city.

This brazen act of defiance was one of the incidents that sparked the English Civil War.

Mike said, “I am quite sceptical about this kind of thing but there are some things you can’t explain.”

“The person who took this photograph told us it looks like Guy Fawkes, but there is no connection with him and this pub.”

“I think people get confused because of the link with plotting.”

Mike and his family took over the pub in 2009 and have had several unexplained incidents saying, “In January, at about 11.30am, Jess (Mikes daughter) ran out from behind the bar shouting ‘Dad, dad! Come and have a look at this’.

“There were six punters, all sat with open mouths, and a set of keys hanging from a hook behind the bar were swinging.”

“I checked for a draught nothing. It was ice cold, as if we stood next to an air conditioning unit.”

“The punters supped-up and left in a hurry,” he added.

Jess even said that her son Bobby has also witnessed the creepy goings-on.

Saying, “I went into his bedroom, above the pub, and he said ‘Shut the door mummy, he can see me!'”

“I asked who and he replied ‘the man’ there was no one there.”

The pub history dates back as far as the 1500s.
