Belton House - The Chinaman

by Thornton
(Grimsby, UK)

Belton House _ The Chinaman

Belton House _ The Chinaman

This photograph was taken at Belton house in Grantham, UK in April, 2008. It was early in the day and the doors to the house were not yet open to the public. I took this picture from the outside looking in through the window - at the time I didn't see anything strange, it was bright outside and I couldn't see much so I just put my camera up to the window and clicked.

When looking through our snaps, my friend pointed out this picture which looked like a cowled figure standing near the doorway of the withdrawing room.
I saw it pretty much straight away and I must admit - my hairs did prickle. What looks to be a smallish oriental looking figure stands to the right of the door.

As this picture was taken through glass - it could easily be a reflection of some sort - as the human eye has an uncanny knack of finding patterns and faces in random marks - whatever it is - it freaked me for a while.

What?
by: Anonymous

I can't see a ghost or even shadow anywhere in this picture! I must be looking in the wrong place. Where is it?

I can see 2 ghosts.

This looks cool. I am not scared of ghosts, because my grandma's house had one, which I saw when I was 7. There is a woman there, at the window through the door, you can see her hair really clearly. There is also a man in a white coat with a beard. This is an awesome pic, though.

chinaman?
by: Anonymous

Ok sooooooo why exactly is this called "the chinaman"? I take it you mean a chinese man? I don't see a chinese ghost. I see something looking ghost like, but nothing definitive for me to say "oh wow a chinese man is haunting an English manor".

wow
by: believer

i copied and pasted this onto photoshop to lighten it to see when i could find, and there is clearly a figure there. his entire body is shades lighter than the rest of the room. this is a great shot!

ooooo...
by: LP

It almost appears to be two of them. One to the left side of the door, very distinct. And one on the inside, (in the hallway) looks like a girl with long black hair. That one could very much be a smudge. It is difficult for me to see detail from the china man, looks like a typical ghost fiqure with white sheet and two holes cut out. hehe.... Excellent picture though, if I snapped that one. I'd be freaked out.

Scary
by: Hannah

i didn't really see it at first but then i read the comments and looked closer and you can see it looking directly at the camera and it looks really freaky lol. i do believe in ghosts and some pictures are really fake and are just reflections or edited things but i think this one is probably the only one that looks real that i've seen up to now

Collar
by: thedon1

If you look towards the left you can clearly see the collar to a white shirt, it almost looks like he's wearing a suit or maybe some kind of jacket over it but you can see the collar clearly

Ghost in the Doorway
by: Anonymous

There's definitely a figure standing by the left side of the door facing the camera. Can't see enough detail to determine any features or costume but it's looking directly at the camera.

interesting
by: Tom

This is a very intriguing image. I have heard of several haunting experiences at Belton but this photo is quite compelling. I'd be interested to hear what other people think.
