Demolition workers were given a fright after photographing a ghostly figure peering through the window of a derelict Victorian guesthouse in Kendal, Cumbria.

The image is said to bear an eerie resemblance of Frances Grimshaw, who worked at the guesthouse and stood for hours at the same window taking bookings.

David Grimshaw, a former resident at the property, said he was convinced the figure is the ghost of his mother, who died nearly a year ago aged 87.

He believes her spirit may have appeared to protest at the demolition of Meadowbank House, which she adored.

i think its a cool pic but nothing more, there way to many light aberations to consider..like looking through a window,looking through a window covered in mist and water looking through a window from outside causing glare ,not knowing what is inside the room exactly etc etc etc etc

I do see a reflection in the upper right of the photo of another building. Perhaps this is just a reflection of someone off camera just like the building reflection.

Definitely looks like a woman dressed in an old fashioned dress,if you believe in ghosts (as I do),it could be a real image,but no doubt the skeptics will be "at it" to give their opinions as always.Roll on death and we shall find out.May you be in heaven 10 minutes before the devil finds out that you're dead.

Definitely a ghost. I knew a clairvoyant when I was a teenager and she often used to tell us when ghosts of our ancestors were around. She was able to communicate with them and tell us facts that the ghosts had told her that she couldn't possibly have known herself. People are very protective of family property held by generations and will demonstrate this possessiveness even after death as is the case here.

I believe the people in the article are telling the truth. I don't think the photo is a fake.

It would be nice to get a picture of the view from where the window was so we can see what  would have been behind the camera. This could help rule out or confirm a reflection.
On its own though it is still an intriguing photograph.

I don't see why this couldn't just be an actual person.

It looks like a man, wearing a red plaid shirt, looking out a foggy window. It looks absolutely nothing like a ghost...
