A mother takes a video of her son riding his bike around a mansion. When she goes home and checks the video, she finds an eerie figure watching her son from one of the windows of the mansion. By zooming in, it looks like the ghost of a woman dressed in the Victorian era.
No, this isn’t the plot of a movie about curses and ghosts, but rather what happened to Louise Lenton when she went to visit Oldway Mansion (Paignton, England), with her husband and 5-year-old son.
Here’s the ghostly encounter on camera:
Oldway Mansion was built in the late 19th century by Isaac Singer, the founder of the famous Singer sewing machine company. He died shortly before the construction was completed. His third son, Paris Eugene Singer, renovated the house to resemble the Palace of Versailles and the Place de la Concorde.
Access to the mansion has been restricted to the public for years, but its beautiful gardens keep attracting tourists.
Due to its current state at the time of recording, there were only security guards inside Oldway Mansion. So we can throw out the idea of a woman making a joke or an actress performing a period piece.
Louise Lenton sent a copy of the video to the local authorities to investigate what happened. After all, we’re talking about a physical or ghostly intrusion into a private building.
Do you believe it’s a ghost? Or just a strange optical illusion? Or, despite what we’ve mentioned, do you think it’s somebody making a joke? Let us know below!
