Teen convinced she captured a ghostly monk on camera

A teen has shared an eerie image of what she believes is the ghost of a monk.

The spooky photo was taken by Rosie Boulton while she was exploring a Welsh abbey at night.

The 19-year-old revealed she had seen ghostly orbs before, but nothing like what she discovered at an abbey in Wales.

“I felt okay at the beginning but it was a huge place which made it feel a little spookier,” Rosie said.

“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.”

Travelling to several haunted locations a week, Rosie is constantly on the road snapping pictures of ruins at night.

Whist photographing Tintern Abbey at night, Rosie and friends didn’t find anything unusual, apart from feeling creeped out whilst at the location.

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.

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.

Having always believed in ghosts and the paranormal, she couldn’t believe her luck and can’t wait to visit the location again.

“I get an adrenaline rush, especially when it’s dark because it sets that eerie vibe,” she said.

And Rosie’s experience has only piqued her interest in ghosts further.

“I want to visit more eerie ruins, like abandoned churches.”
