Did Queen Elizabeth I make an appearance on camera at the stately home where she once secretly stayed 600 years ago? According to ghost hunter Steve Wesson she did.
Steve was investigating Strelley Hall, a stately home near Nottingham, UK, to see if he could capture any paranormal activity.
Little did he know he would capture the ghost of Queen Elizabeth I while investigating the cellar.
The video which Steve shared shows a ghostly figure standing in the cellar archway for around 10 seconds before disappearing.
Steve said “There is nothing plausible that it could be apart from an apparition.
“There was no one around, I just can’t explain it.
“I have been through so many hours of footage and never seen anything like that before – it’s just amazing.
“Apparently Queen Elizabeth I slept above where this was taken as that’s where the old rooms were.
“No one ever talked about it as for some reason she wasn’t supposed to be there – it was all a bit hush-hush – some sort of secret.”
He added “I remember it clearly popping up, it just appeared for a few seconds and then disappeared.
“It’s just amazing – for something to just appear and disappear for no reason is quite shocking.
“There are times when you still get freaked out and squeal like a girl but I usually have a bit of an explanation, however, this one still makes me shiver.
“I was excited as well as being freaked out – I was over the moon.
“You hear the stories about these sort of things but it’s so hard to get them on camera.
“You can run cameras for so long and get nothing but to come across something that can’t be explained is just incredible.”
Steve and his team returned to the home the following day to find an explanation of what the figure could have been.
He said “We went back to the exact spot under the archway where the figure was seen to manifest and we tried to debunk it by trying different light settings to create shadows.
“We even tried to experiment with a real person but the figure was too whole and you could clearly see it was a person.
“We were overjoyed at our capture, something like this is extremely rare in the paranormal community and we feel very privileged that we captured this amazing piece of evidence.
“This will forever be one of our greatest captures.”
