A couple visiting this castle claim to have caught a ghost in their camera while visiting the Dudley Zoological Gardens.
The West Midlands castle is regarded as the most haunted place in England since 1071.
The couple say that they noticed a blurred outline of a ‘Gray lady’ who is said to haunt the castle for centuries. The locals are so taken in with the belief that a pub had been named in honour of the castle ghost.
They are sure that they spotted the ‘Gray Lady’ ghost in the pictures they had taken. The lady was accompanied by a little girl.
The couple said that they were not ghost hunters but the strange image in the photos evoked their curiosity.
Experts however feel that this is a case of pareidolia – a phenomenon where people recognise distinct features or patterns in objects or images.
People often get affected by pareidolia when they imagine faces or images in clouds or the moon.
Phychologists have come up with a number of logical theories where the brain makes wishful observations and casts imaginable images.
Children are more susceptible to engage in a fantasy world and tend to see more ghosts than adults.
While some adults who want to see ghosts believe that they are seeing them.
Whatever may be the argument, for those with a mind to delve in the unknown, this sure is an experience worth taking.
Take a visit to this haunted castle or you will miss out on the Gray Lady ghost!
