New Pendle witch ghost photo appears to capture black-eyed spirit staring straight at camera

These eerie pictures could be the best evidence yet that the spirit of one of the Pendle witches haunts the notorious town. The spine-chilling pictures show what could be the ghost of a young girl looking out from a gravestone with a deathly white face and an ice-cold stare from her black eyes – appearing to look straight into the camera. The spooky images were snapped last week by medium and psychic artist Christine Hamlett, 58, from Northwich, Cheshire, at St Mary’s Parish Church in Pendle. She believes she saw nine-year-old Jennet Preston, one of the ‘witches’ who was hanged. Caters

Witch: The girl looks like she is staring directly at the camera Christine said: “I felt a presence in Pendle. “You can see the outline of a young girl in the pictures. I think that graveyard is haunted. “I’ve always been drawn to the area because of the history and the legends. There’s definitely an aura around the place. Caters

Haunted: She was pictured standing in the cemetery at a church in Pendle “I felt Jennet when I was there in the graveyard and looking back at the pictures there’s also the shadow of a man in one of them so that could be the judge. “I felt the presence of a young girl in the cemetery and I think it was Jennet.

Ghost hunter: Medium and psychic artist Christine Hamlett spotted the ghost “It felt like she was scared and confused. It must have been horrible for such a young girl to go through all of that, she was only nine. “The cemetery is steeped in history. You can really feel it when you’re there.” The trials of the Pendle witches in 1612 are among the most famous witch trials in English history. Caters

Mystery: Christine believes St Marys Church in Pendle Hill is haunted by the spirits of the witches The twelve accused lived in the area around Pendle Hill, Lancashire, and were charged with the murders of ten people by the use of witchcraft. Of the eleven who went to trial – nine women and two men – ten were found guilty and executed by hanging, including Jennet, while one was found not guilty. Jennet’s mother Elizabeth allegedly had a devil mark where he sucked her blood and was also thought to be responsible for hosting a meeting of witches at Pendle’s Malkin tower. Christine said: “I invite the spirits to reveal themselves to me and take the photographs. My friends call me the psychic paparazzi.”
