Those photos weren't from Borley Rectory Kar-zid, but from Wem.

Here's a link to Time Magazine and an article on Borley Rectory.  There is a photo of a brick being tossed at Borley, I'm sure I read somewhere that this photo could so easily have been faked and that Harry Price was guilty of doing this from time to time, in fact, his investigation of Borley probably did him more harm than good.  I've read that he was found to have a pocket full of stones which he would throw around during his investigations, how can you trust someone who investigating a place, if they do this?

"This picture was taken by  Tony O'Rahilly in 1995, as Wem Town Hall, Shropshire,
England, burned down. The  girl in the doorway was not seen at the time the photo
was taken. When examined by photographic expert Dr. Vernon Harrison, former
president of the Royal Photographic Society the photo was deemed genuine, in that
it was not tampered with.  In 1977 there was another fire in this place, started
accidentally by a young girl by the name of Jane Churm. Is this her ghost?"

Sorry, it was in Wem... this is from a famous ghost photos website, ask if ya want the link.

As you're probably now aware, Borley Rectory does not stand any more. It's just a site now.

Yeah, that's right Loonboy.  I remember watching a programme years ago (I think it was the one with Michael Aspel) and they had left a tape recorder taping all night inside the church at Borley which still stands, and about 4am, there was the most terrifying, lingering moan recorded - it was really scary and sounded nothing like an owl or a fox, it was a human sound - I've never see or heard about that since though.

That would have been 'Strange But True' and although I remember that episode and the audio tape, I only remember it recording tapping sounds - as if stones/pebbles were being dropped onto the church floor. I don't remember the moan... hmmm...

Sorry to now go off on a tangent, but it was a great show. And British TV needs something like that again - a show that investigates & presents various paranormal cases.

I totally agree, ITV just had Haunted Homes, but it was disappointing I felt (though I still watched it).  I like the old, famous ghost stories to be investigated and Strange but True had good eye witness testimony which I liked -  it was a wicked show.  I think ITV2 should rerun it.  yes.gif

I remember the moan at the Borley Church clearly, it was horrible - maybe it was a different show I saw it on?

Here's a photo I found that is alleged to be of a ghost in the grounds where Borley Rectory used to be.

I think I've seen that photo (the larger one) somewhere on the image gallery on the main page, and I think the figure is out of scale for the rest of the landscape, if it is a ghost...

Hmmm.

Ah, here we are - found it.

Nice one Loonboy.  They are the same photograph, the figures are in the same alignment I would say (with my untrained eye, or even two untrained eyes).  But in my shot it looks more human shaped.  

Also, is it just me but the perspective I take is that it looks really small as well, compared to the height of the headstones?

Yea, that image is unnerving but also an allusion of peace. It would be nice to take pictures like that of family.

the whole borley rectory story is just a huge lie. I recently found a book that had a very detailed report into borly rectory and the people who investigsited it and it proved that harry price had faked the whole thing. If people need evidence I can get it. but it is to much to type up.

I don't know too many specifics about the Borley haunting, but my understanding of it was that there was phenomena witnessed by many different people at different eras of the building's history, but that it was the Marianne years that were the suspect ones.

That is, there was a haunting, but at one point the residnets hyped it up a bit for attention.
