A ghostly sighting of a monk has been caught on a teenager’s camera while she was exploring the ruins of Tintern Abbey in Monmouthshire, Wales, at night
Urban explorer Rosie Boulton, 19, was taking pictures of the Abbey with friends. She said they didn’t notice anything unusual on the night but she was ‘freaked out’ when she saw the pictures
Whist photographing Tintern Abbey at night, Rosie and friends didn’t find anything unusual, apart from feeling creeped out whilst at the location.
However, when Rosie returned home and looked at the images, she spotted the ghostly figure her camera had captured.
The hooded figure can be seen in the photographs standing in front of the ruins.

Having always believed in ghosts and the paranormal, she couldn’t believe her luck and can’t wait to visit the location again.
Rosie, from Stanford Bridge, Worcs, said: ‘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.
‘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.

On the night Rosie said the group felt as if ‘someone was coming towards us so we all ran out as we were scared’ but the experience hasn’t put her off looking for more ghosts in the future
‘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.’
Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire, stands by the River Wye and it was founded by the Cistercian monks in 1131 AD and was the only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain – the first in Wales.
The current ruins are a mixture of building works from 1131 to 1536, with little remaining of the first buildings. It still boasts vast windows and soaring archways.
There have been many ghostly sightings of monks and other spiritual entities in the abbey.
The Black Death in 1348 saw many of the monks perish, and some claim to see their spirits within the halls of the abbey, lined up and holding torches.
Rosie’s experience has only piqued her interest in ghosts further, she added: ‘I want to visit more eerie ruins, like abandoned churches.’
