NOSTALGIA: After 212 years, Lord Nelson’s legacy will never be forgotten

Have your say

On October 26 2006 The News reported some spooky goings-on at the 1,700-year-old Portchester Castle.

Someone had seen or heard things and a monk on a horse was reportedly spotted.

Last Sunday I was at St Mary’s Church within the castle grounds for the christening of my three-month old granddaughter, Verity.

Before everyone arrived I took a few photographs of the font to test the light.

It was not until I arrived home and downloaded the photographs that I realised what I had taken.

Behind the font can be seen what looks like a shadow of a monk’s habit and also something in the bottom left hand corner. Other photos on the day of the same location reveal nothing like this. Perhaps he was just getting ready to bless my granddaughter?
