A student says she captured the image of a ghostly caretaker while exploring an abandoned mental asylum after dark.
Kyla Peberdy was walking through the abandoned Denbigh Asylum in Wales with three friends earlier this month when she came across a derelict corridor.
Despite hearing banging, talking and experiencing cold shivers, it wasn’t until Kyla looked back at the photographs that she noticed the ghostly figure.
The 22-year-old was shocked when she saw the figure lurking in the distance and believes it could be the ghost of a deceased caretaker who used to work at the asylum.
Kyla, from Crewe, Cheshire, said: ‘It was really scary in there – it felt as though ghosts were present because I could feel the tension.
‘But it wasn’t until we returned to the car and I was looking through the photographs that I saw the ghost.
‘As soon as I saw the figure I had a horrible pain in my chest, that went all the way down my arm, and I couldn’t speak, it was terrifying.
‘Rumour has it that there’s the ghost of a caretaker there I’m sure that’s him.’
Kyla, an avid fan of the paranormal, decided to explore the abandoned asylum after hearing that it was haunted.
Despite being sceptical about what she would find, Kyla came out of the asylum horrified and having her beliefs of the paranormal confirmed.
Kyla added: ‘When we were in there it was terrifying – doors were shutting behind us and there was continual banging.
‘When I started taking photographs I could see orbs and mist covering my screen, as though the ghost was getting in the photo.
‘As soon as I saw the mist I knew I had to get out of the asylum so I ran out, but as I was running I could still hear voices.
‘However even when I thought I was safe in the car, that’s when I saw the caretaker in the photograph of the corridor. My fear took over all over again.’
Despite her terrifying encounter at the asylum, Kyla insists that she wants to return in the day time and even wants to camp out in the asylum’s adjoining morgue.
