Is this a ghostly ‘black-robed monk’ in Harlech Castle window?

Medium Christine Hamlett says she has spotted spirits across North Wales including in her caravan in Tal-y-Bont and a terrifying encounter in Wrexham

Does this picture taken at Harlech Castle, show the ghost of a black-robed monk?

Hanging out of a window at Harlech’s medieval castle, could this picture show the figure of a ghostly black-cloaked monk?

The image was taken by medium Christine Hamlett, who believes there is no other explanation for the dark shapes emerging from the historic building.

The 57-year-old ‘rescue clairvoyant’ was holidaying in Tal-y-Bont in October last year when she decided to visit the town.

Tasked with bringing troubled souls back to the afterlife, Christine usually uses a pan and water technique using reflections to capture spirits on camera.

However, she was out taking normal pictures of Harlech with her family when the haunting image was recorded.

She said: “That one was taken when I was just snapping around and when I looked at it I couldn’t believe what was there.

“I didn’t notice anything at the time, but I was looking at it recently and I said to my husband ‘What’s that in the window?’

“It looks like it’s wearing a monk’s robe. It was a cold day so there weren’t many people about and I don’t know why someone would hang out of a window anyway.”

Christine, who lives in Northwich, Cheshire, said she was unsure whether the castle had any historic links to monks.

However, one explanation could be its close proximity to Cymer Abbey which was inhabited by Cistercian monks.

It was also not the only ghostly experience she had while holidaying in North Wales.

She said: “When we were in the caravan at Tal-y-Bont we kept hearing someone walking around at night, so we took a picture and a white figure showed up.

“They (spirits) tend to follow me about so it’s not unusual.”

However, one of the most disturbing cases Christine has dealt with came in north east Wales.

“One of the worst ones I’ve ever had was in Wrexham. There was the ghost of a man in the house scaring the children and it was so bad that the family was living in the garden.”

She has also been involved in investigating the recent black-eyed child paranormal phenomenon, which has been making national headlines.

Her husband David captured an image of what she claims in one of the ghostly children in Hanley near Stoke.

Christine said: “I’ve been taking ITC photos and there were a lot of black-eyed faces coming up.

“I’ve tried to get the children into the light, but they’re refusing to go as they want their story told.”
