Victorian Ghost Photographed In Window of Wiltshire, England Home

A woman has photographed a strange figure peering out the window of her home in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.

According to The Mirror, Michelle Midwinter had been taking pictures of her house when she noticed the ghostly figure staring back at her. She ran inside to see if anyone was there, but found no one — only herself and her young daughter.

Midwinter has since nicknamed the figure “Old Man Kent,” after a tragedy that struck a nearby village in the 1800s. But strange photographs aren’t the only thing plaguing Midwinter. She’s also experienced a number of bizarre phenomena, including objects falling off walls, doors opening on their own, and strange noises in the night.

What is this face in the window? The ghost of Samuel Kent? An illusion? A hoax?

I, personally, believe that what we have here is more than just any old ethereal spirit: this, my friends, is the ghost of Humpty Dumpty himself! The resemblance is uncanny.

  1. I always think that chance has some factor in these images. I sometimes find patterns that look exactly like faces in agony on random tiles of my bathroom. They look like evil spirits from hell. And they have full facial features like frown eye browns, shouting mouths etc. I am not saying all of these images are like that, but with some luck and reflections some freaky stuff might come up. As humans our brains are always seeking patterns to recognize shapes as faces. But it is always interesting to see some picture of a freaky face on a random window, and pattern seeking brains bring no explanation to the poltergeist activity, right?

  2. That would creep me out. I’ve seen similar faces with trees and night. Like shadows and branching forming a face.

    1. Yes, it happens all the time :)
      Some veins and patterns on wood surfaces also tend to create random creepy looking faces.
