Our witness is a miss Rosie Boulton, was exploring the Welsh abbey but did not see anything unusual whilst on her adventure – it was not until she returned home and examined the pictures she had taken that she saw something surprising and creepy.
Rosie a bit of a fan of the paranormal had seen strange things before once spotting spectral orbs.
Touring the country and investigating many haunted locations each week, Rosie is constantly traveling snapping pictures of many of the countries old ruins of an evening. but her past experiences paled in comparison to what she had uncovered at the abbey.
Her camera had unknowingly captured the image of A ghostly ‘monk’.
Rosie reports how herself and friends had no unusual feelings when they were at the location of the picture, but did feel creeped out by the abbey.
The monk or some other type of 'hooded figure' is seen standing in front of the ruins in what is a surprisingly clear photograph.
Having always had a belief in ghosts and the paranormal, Rosie could not believe her luck when she first saw the picture and said she can't wait to visit the location again.
Rosie commented saying: "I get an adrenaline rush, especially when it's dark because it sets that eerie vibe.
"I felt okay at the beginning but it was a huge place which made it feel a little more spooky.
we had a 'creepy' feeling in the area but did not see the ghostly figure until later
"You're not supposed to go there at night. We felt like someone was coming towards us so we all ran out as we were scared.
"I didn't know about the ghost of the monk until I got home and looked back at the pictures.
"I was on my own going through the photos and it just freaked me out. I called my friends and told her about the photos straight away."
"I want to visit more eerie ruins, like abandoned churches."
This photo is definitely spooky and It's a really clear image
