'Ghost' caught on camera in haunted pub


Posted on Thursday, 20 February, 2014 | Comment icon 48 comments

Is the building haunted ? Image Credit: YouTube / Manchester Evening News
Staff at one of Britain's oldest pubs believe that they may have captured something paranormal on CCTV.
The footage was taken at the Ye Olde Man and Scythe pub in Bolton and appears to show an eerie figure flicker in to view momentarily behind the bar. The apparition was spotted by Manager Tony Dooley when he went to investigate why the cameras had mysteriously stopped functioning 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."

Some believe that the ghost of James Stanley, a royalist who spent the last few hours of his life in the pub before being beheaded in 1651, still resides within the building.

I love British Pubs. They're so civilized. In America we just have Bars, Honky-Tonks, and Cantinas.

It's probably not fake but it's likely not a ghost either. Many good explanations for these anomolies have been pointed out already in this thread. No need for the explainations. Its video editng, CGI whatever you want to call it. Well done though i give them that but still, its not a great standard and is glaringly obvious. The flashing light is 100% real and on the original footage but everything else is added.

The flashing light is 100% real and on the original footage but everything else is added. I disagree. I don't see the need for foul play or "fakery" when, as others have pointed out, there are natural explanations for why a cctv camera could produce these results. Why leap straight to the assumption that someone faked it? It's clearly not a ghost but that doesn't mean the post isn't legitimate.

I have a few theories on this case. A) Ambulance/Police lights, This can causes shadows and random movement a long the wall. . Constant over taping the tape, The blinking and imagines are over lapping video footage, There been a few cases where the timer has had two numbers in it. Look at frame 15 and frame 27. This is good. Anyways aformentioned post- Your friend should've checked for any way to debunk the ghost tape, quote above this explains it all.

So this skeptical paranormal team (yes there are people out there who are skeptics and go paranormal hunting) made a mimic version of the pub.

WITH fans awaiting the third instalment of the Ghostbusters movie franchise — The Bolton News reporters Liam Thorp and Jeremy Culley made their case for starring roles as they set out on a ghost hunting mission at Bolton’s haunted pub WHEN CCTV footage emerged of what appeared to be a ghostly presence at Bolton’s oldest pub — Ye Olde Man and Scythe in Churchgate — myself and Jeremy decided to build up the “spirit” to spend a night searching for the pub’s paranormal patron. As we set off on our mission, I think it is safe to say we were both sceptical. To watch the video or read rest of the art... [More]
