Taken in 1966 and investigated by multiple experts, none have found any tampering done with the negative whatsoever. This is not the only ghost found by the Tulip Staircase.

Turning around, she takes a candid picture of her husband alone in the car. After getting the film developed, she saw what she recognized as the figure of her mother.

The next year, her and her husband returned to the church, showing the photograph to the church vicar who proceeded to tell them the story of The White Lady, a healer apparition who appears close to those in ill health, whom the wife was at the time of the photograph. Reports of the White Lady go back over a century, with one ending in the death of a man in the winter of 1830.

He was taking a picture of the altar, where nothing extraordinary was visible to the naked eye; however, upon being developed, this spectre appeared. After being scrutinized by photography experts, many have concluded that there has been no tampering with the original negative. According to analysts, this spectre would be nine feet tall!
