'Female ghost' photographed at Bodmin Jail

Posted on Sunday, 20 June, 2021 | Comment icon 14 comments

Who or what is this ? Image Credit: Kirsten Honey
The image of an allegedly 'agitated' apparition has been caught on camera at the notoriously haunted prison.
Built in 1779 before closing down in 1927, Bodmin Jail can be found nestled at the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, England where it has since been turned into a hotel, museum and gift shop.

Over the years, its haunted reputation has also attracted the attention of numerous ghost hunting shows, paranormal investigators and others keen to experience something unexplained.

Most recently, the jail's paranormal manager Kirsten Honey has captured the image of what she believes to be a female apparition lurking within its walls.
"The picture was taken during our last lockdown about four months ago in the Naval Wing which is part of our attraction and now open to the public," she said.

"I think it is an old woman described as the hag often seen within the walls of Bodmin Jail. She doesn't reside in one spot she wanders through the corridors. Other people have witnessed her and felt fear or unsafe with her - she resonates a very uncomfortable feeling."

"She is extremely agitated and grumpy and would be the kind of woman to avoid."

Footage from a separate paranormal investigation at the jail can be viewed below.

Both the photo and the short video in the article look fake as hell.

Crystal clear 4k footage of anything 'paranormal' would automatically be called CGI. Blurry, crappy footage convinces many that it's authentic. There's just enough doubt in it for imaginations to take over. At least enough to foster clicks/likes and make some money. A lot of people want to believe. Also, think of it like a horror movie or novel. The unknown and unseen/undescribed is more frightening.

Does the thing show up in the video? What time if so? Not watching 20 minutes of that to try and find it.

There's a video of less than a minute in the article itself.

The Youtube video is like what Xeno said: boring. I scanned fast through the video, and after say 15 min. they get upset about some fireflies/'orbs'.

I guess my standards are too high. Some people go "full paranormal" at the slightest blurry image.

Not if it was in fact genuine - there are some fairly simple ways to actually check the original footage for tampering/editing. The reason that has never been done to date, as far as I am aware, is one or more of the following: - there have been no genuine 'paranormal' happenings. - the CGI is ridiculously obvious (eg frames missing or inconsistent, cut/paste edges, etc) - the CGI is admitted by the hoaxer, in order to avoid further scrutiny and the inevitable embarrassment or to complete their advertising campaign for their skilz...
