Ghost Caught on Camera in Britain Pub

Postby skywatcher » 19 Feb 2014, 06:23

Here's an interesting article with picture and video from the Telegraph.


Apparently the fourth oldest pub (or something like that) is haunted and they got it on video on Valentines day.

Here's the image:

Staff at one of Britain's oldest pubs, rumoured to be haunted by an aristocrat executed during the Civil War, believe they have caught a ghost on CCTV.

The footage, which appears to show a shadowy figure flickering into view by the bar, was filmed at Ye Olde Man and Scythe in Bolton on Valentine's Day.

Tony Dooley, the pub's manager, spotted the spectre when he checked the cameras on Friday morning and found they had stopped recording at 6.18am.

"I came down and saw a glass smashed on the floor so I was instantly suspicious and went to check the CCTV and found it has stopped working," he said.

"We checked the footage and it revealed this figure. To be honest I was a bit concerned - I'm a bit of a sceptic when it comes to ghosts but you become more of a believer when you see things like that."

Not saying this isn't a video of a person from the "other-side," (okay, maybe I am), but what a great way for a new pub owner to garner some publicity and increase tourism at a classic, but forgotten pub. Just sayin'

Much as I'd like to think it is a genuine video of a ghost, I'm more inclined to suspect that the manner of the flickering of the light and its movement means that an emergency service vehicle was passing by and one is simply seeing a reflection of that. I'd love some genuine evidence, but I suspect this isn't it.

It is nostalgia that is behind this fascination for the dead and wishful thinking they might return to replace the trash that is left of a diminished empire fading into oblivion.
Why ghosts are seen mainly in pubs is less of a mystery than the Brits will have you believe. It was in pubs that the musings of building a great British Empire was conceived. Not known for possessing a great imagination, history is their surest guide.
There are enough Indians in Britain to remind them their conquered subjects have remained loyal. It may be time to seize the tide or kick themselves for being fooled by their own reflections also slowly fading into oblivion.


Strange, but for us Brits it seems the other way round, and it is Americans who are obsessed with ghosts ( I love a bit of playful us vs them banter ) . One thing we DO excel at is the worst ghost investigation shows in the world, such as Most Haunted. The American Ghost Hunters series was at least interesting, though inconclusive.

IMO, one word explains most of these type of sightings..... glass. However, I do like this one a lot.
