'Ghost of a monk' spotted at medieval castle


Posted on Saturday, 27 January, 2018 | Comment icon 113 comments
A photograph taken at Eynsford Castle in Kent, England appears to show a mysterious cloaked figure.
Jon Wickes had been visiting the medieval castle with his 12-year-old son to help him out with a history homework assignment when something strange showed up in one of his photographs.

The anomalous figure, which neither of them had noticed at the time the picture was taken, appears to be dressed in a large hooded cloak and looks quite a bit like a medieval monk.


Intriguingly, there have been sightings of a ghostly monk at the castle before and in 1130, William de Eynsford, who held the castle for the Archbishop of Canterbury, allegedly retired to become a monk.

"I'm not sure if it's a ghost or not," said Wickes. "I'm never really freaked out by that sort of stuff."

"Everyone who's seen it is interested in it because many think it is a ghost."

I watched it and saw nothing at all that I would construe as such a monk with a satchel strap across his back. Also nothing that would support the claim that someone went there to look for said hole and couldn’t find It is a bald faced lie. You just have a long shot hopeful theory there in my judgment.

That would essentially require a disproof to be logical.

I don’t claim 100% anything, you do.

So you don't claim ghosts exist for certain? You're saying there is a chance your views are mistaken? All the evidence you need is there papa and it's plain as day. If instead of accepting reality you choose to see proof of an afterlife in holes in a castle wall then I don't really know what more to say to you.

You also didn't answer the question. Where is the hole shown in the video in the original picture? If the 'monk' is really there then what happened to the hole?

My comment to the unicorn was related to this monk photo. I do believe in the existence of ghosts beyond all reasonable doubt (essentionally 100%). ‘Plain as day’?  GOOD GRIEF !!

That answer would require an on-site visit by someone to recapture the view and angle as accurately as possible.

No it doesn't. We can take fixed markers on the wall and from there see that the holes I showed you should be on the original photograph - it's easy to see it's the same part of the wall he captured. If the monk is a hole then this explains it, if it is not then where has the hole gone? It's up to you to explain if you wish anyone to take you seriously. Either way I'm finished here unless you have anything useful to add or some analysis of your own? And no, sticking your fingers in your ears and chanting 'it's a ghost monk' over and over doesn't count.

The only evidence needed for this is the lack of pictures. If they spoke the truth they would have snapped a shot and proved it beyond all doubt. They didn't because they lied and/or realised it's a hole in the wall.

Seems like a low budget attempt to drum up tourist interest for the location. Many other such ancient sites have been connected to such practices in the past.
