London, Oct 20 (ANI): A couple visiting the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham, which are supposed to be one of the most haunted locations in Great Britain, has captured a photo of a mysterious 'eerie mass of white, like an evil male figure.'
Scores of highwayman, murderers and thieves were subjected to public hangings from within its walls. Many modern visitors to the site in Nottingham, now a museum, claim to have witnessed spooky goings-on from flying orbs to strange smells and rattling keys.
Christine Spice visited the old prison and courtrooms with her partner Denyer earlier this month and clicked a picture of a figure behind a second apparition, which appears to be a small child in some form of period dress, on her mobile phone camera.
"We are both very spiritual people, and could sense quite a lot of spiritual presence around the building. We went to visit the pits and immediately I became very agitated and sensed something really bad and evil," The Telegraph quoted Spice as saying.
"I told Denyer I thought we should leave as it was affecting me. I could sense the danger and my breathing and heartbeat became faster - I felt very scared. We could smell a musty, rotting smell and was very uncomfortable. I then became so freaked out that I ran out," she added.
"The feeling of evil was so overwhelming. Once outside we looked at the photo and could see a white glow like a huge threatening aura," Spice said.
The Galleries of Justice is the only place in Britain where criminals could be tried, convicted, and sentenced. Some executions were even done at the entrance of the building.
It contains the original cells, dungeons, two courtrooms, and several medieval caves, where the photo was taken.
After the pair calmed down, they continued looking around, spending some time looking at all the ID photos taken of prisoners displayed on the walls.
"It was in this room that someone pulled my hair. I turned around expecting to see my brother but there was no one there," she said.
Tim Desmond, chief executive at the museum, said, "What is interesting is now that people have camera phones we are receiving actual images of what they pick up. Even if you are a sceptic it is very difficult to refute the unusual sights." (ANI)
