The Newby Church Ghost was photographed  by Reverend K. F. Lord at Newby Church in North Yorkshire, England in 1963. He claims he was merely taking a photo of the alter and didn’t see anything unusual at the time, until the photograph was developed. This particular photo has been the subject of many arguments and much controversy over the years due to the rather “fake” appearance of the figure in the photo.

A BBC team examined this photo back in the 1970s and concluded that it was definitely NOT a double exposure and that the negative had not been tampered with.

The Newby Church was built in 1870 and, as far as anyone knows, did not have a history of ghosts, hauntings or other peculiar phenomena. Those why have carefully analyzed the proportions of the objects in the photo calculated that the spectre of the ghostly  monk  is about nine feet tall!
