The Northampton Paranormal Group caught the figure on camera during a visit to the site of the Battle of Naseby, a field between the villages of Clipston and Naseby in Northamptonshire, last month.

The visit coincided with the 363rd Anniversary of the Battle of Naseby. Members said they heard clunking noises as well as sounds like cannonball fire.

When the group then looked through pictures they took during the visit, they spotted what appeared to be mysterious figure walking out of the dark carrying something in its hands.

I found a version of the photo that's a little bit larger:

Pretty neat photo. But I would have really liked to have seen the original. I hate it when they doctor stuff for articles and make it short and sweet.

Is it really a ghost or perhaps some residual energy hanging out there, replaying like a record I wonder.

Looks less like a soldier, and more like some guy playing a guitar to me. But mostly it jut appears to be a random shape.
Wehter or not it's a ghost, I can't tell you. But it doesn't look much like a Civil War soldier, that I can.

I used to be a civil war reenactor and that armour looks just like it, with the armour panels guarding the thighs. The people who would have used these would be pikemen, swordsmen and cavalry, so to an extent, the reports of the image seem to fit well. Just to say i was not allowed into battles themselves because i was 10 at the time (just civil war life i did) so my knowlege can be put to correction, but i learned alot.

good picture!
oh yes, is this the original image? i can understand if it was at night. but it seems blured.

I would say that this is easily debunked, but what really is there to debunk, anyway? Some odd combination of shadows and light that maybe kind of looks like something if you have a good imagination? Duh.
