Thanks for sharing these pics, Bobdonk. I`ve not seen these before and will make a point of finding them when I`m in Rochester again.

There is a lot of graffiti on the walls of Rochester Cathedral some of it dating back many centuries.
A  lot of it is very difficult to see and also difficult to photograph:

"Stuart House" 1642



Christ with two disciples



Virgin Mary



More houses







HCH Entered this Cathedral 15th May 1890 Left 4 June 1894.



Pattern



Eagle



Mediaeval Latin



There are a lot more

Great thread! I've spent many hours of my life there... I don't think I've spotted any so photos of it so far, but if you go down into the crypt and head over to one of the corners you can see some old paintings of knights in chain armour on the ceiling.

Sometimes it is better if photograph is developed with dark areas made light and light areas made dark.  The figure I see is blurred but is definitely holding something clasped in their hands.  Could be a book, could be a rosary.

Without trying to upset people who genuinely believe, I must have photographed hundreds of 'ghosts'!

Every photo that is poorly lit / focussed / incorrect flash etc. will produce an image like that one, and then you can 'see' whatever you want to see.

Why is it that every 'sighting' is captured in such poor quality? Why are there no crystal-clear images that would make cynics like me sit up & say 'Crikey, that really is a ghost in that photo!'?

i am glad i am not the only person to believe, i go on regular ghost vigils and i noticed only yesterday that one of the paranormal groups i belong to has a visit to fort amherst soon, i have been all over the country visiting different places and have had some really good and also some really quite frightening experiences, i remember in my 20's i used to live a stones throw from rochester castle/cathederal and i used to spend many a night sat under the hanging tree waiting for anything to happen i used to work in the roebuck inn and i used to lock up of a night and quite a few times things happened i cannot explain and i have no intentions of trying to i
 know what i have seen and experienced and i will continue to hunt

hi alanh,I'm glad you believe,and thats a very nice story about your dad,After the experiences iv'e had i have no choice but to believe,and capturing ghosts on camera even though you cannot see them with your eyes at the time,leaves a lot of explaining,i and my friend neil,finished our "haunted rochester" book six months early due to the huge response from the people of rochester who had stories to offer us.Apart from bishop gundulph,and st.william of perth supposedly being interred in the cathedral,theres also supposed to be a prince from transylvania buried there somewhere,who was murdered in strood hundreds of years ago,i
 wonder wether he was a vampire!

I look forward to more on this as I for one believe in ghosts. It is said by many to be ones imagination but there's definitely something there and my own experience of my long dead Dad touching my head when I felt so strange one day convinces me.
It was the oddest thing I've ever felt and I'm not one given to silly imaginations.

On the 20th december 2008, i caught a ghost on camera in the cathedral ,the only person in the building with me was a female verger,the clergy at the cathedral have asked to see it as they have been seeing something around the building of late.I dont really know how to put photos on here,but i went to medway messenger offices yesterday,and gave them a story and gave them the photo to scan and also one that my sister took of a ghost of a monk in the chapel of rochester castle,hopefully it will be in the next addition of the medway messenger,anyway,both photos will be in our book "haunted rochester" which is due out in april.
