    This link leads to a web page about our local village pub.

    http://www.cliptone.co.uk/The%20Bull.htm

    The day before yesterday a guy was in wiring up for new tills and the like and had cause to venture into the loft space above the kitchen (which is the gable just poking up between the two main buildings in the picture). As he returned down the ladder all manner of christmas decorations followed him as if they were being thrown not simply falling out of the loft. He stopped and stuck his mobile phone into the hole and took a few snaps of which I attach what we think is the most interesting.....what do you think that is in the bottom left hand corner?

    Are you referring to the white bit that looks like the outline of a head and shoulders?

    Thats the bit.....I'm reserving my opinion at the moment as we have decided what it might be but I wondered if anyone else could see the same......just to lead you on a little....any idea of this 'head and shoulders 'profession'?

    You can obviously see more than me. I can see what looks like a chimney breast with maybe white plaster to the left and bricks to the right. Above that there appears to be a little distortion but nothing that I could 'make out'

    OK how about this.....

    not so much the light shape, there is a dark sillhouette there which me and the lads reckon looks like an old possibly victorian policeman with a round hat, pale face with moustache and large black cape.....anyone concur?

    Bloody hell! I just did some filtering in Photoshop to increase the clarity...now I see exactly what you mean. I think this is conclusive proof of ghosts...amazing.

    I can't see a thing on the original photo apart from shadows and camera noise and maybe a pub landlord trying to create more business ;) :D

    I can see this becoming one of those 'maze scare' tricks
