'Ghost of a monk' spotted at medieval castle

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."
