Picture of Asylum Ghost Captured in Wales?


ghostly-face-asylum-wales-uk-real-pics-ghost-photo-photographThe Daily Mirror recently published a photograph taken by one Adam Smith, who walking past the Brecon and Radnor Lunatic Asylum, which is located in Wales.

The asylum opened in 1903 and was also where German prisoners were kept after capture during World War Two. The site has been fully closed since 1999.

Smith was recently walking by the abandoned structure when he snapped a photo which to show a terrifying face in an upper window of the building.

When uploading the photo to share on social media, Smith was quick to claim his paranormal photo was genuine:

“I caught an epic shot of a ghost at the abandoned Brecon and Radnor Lunatic Asylum.

Maybe it was a patient who had a lobotomy or perhaps a soldier patient from the war or maybe a Nazi prisoner.

Whatever it was, it certainly gave me a fright.”


Apparently it gave quite a lot of others a fright as well as the picture went viral. So much so that the locals including the government started contacting Smith about the photo as people were going to the abandoned asylum to look for the ghost:

“I started to get messages from local residents and Councillors asking me that I remove it because hundreds of people were turning up at the hospital.”

While I can certainly see the scary looking face in the picture, seemingly dressed in something akin to a white hospital gown, it almost looks like a dummy with a Halloween mask on as well, so my skeptical Spidey-Sense is tingling here a bit.

This, added to the fact that Smith seemed convinced of the picture from the time he took it and at the risk of insulting  Smith, who may be an innocent party, perhaps this picture was some kind of set up.

What do you guys think of this photo? Let us know in the comments below.

    I can’t say it’s authentic or not, but it’s interesting that the figure seems to have a full ‘Abe Lincoln’ beard and is looking down, as an asylum inmate might very well do after being in there for a while. I imagine that the drugs used to calm people would be pretty heavy-duty and might well make it hard to walk, hence the downward gaze?

    • I can surely see the resemblance to old ‘Honest Abe’ but still not sure about the photo itself honestly.
