Dog walking couple spot 'demonic figure' stalking them in national trust park
| Last updated
An early morning stroll with the dogs turned into an episode of The X-Files for one unsuspecting couple. Watch the video below if you’re feeling brave:
Pub owners Hannah and Dave Rowett had quite the fright when the former captured footage of a ‘demon ghost’ crawling across the path in an infamous haunted park.
In the unsettling footage a small, ghostly-looking figure can be seen sprinting across the path.
The couple were walking their Labradors through Clumber Park, the National Trust country park in Nottinghamshire, at around 6:30am earlier this month.
The park is said to be the home of a female spirit called ‘Grey Lady’ who haunts the forest while wearing a long, grey coat.
Hannah, 52, quickly used her phone to capture the ‘scary’, white silhouette crossing the couple’s path as she follows it with a torch.
"Initially I thought it was a dog, but then as I look at it it's more a human-type form,” Hannah, from Worksop, Nottinghamshire confessed.
"Dave was still getting one of the dogs out of the car and I just sensed I wasn't on my own. I took a photo and as I did it went across the camera."
The video was originally taken as a ‘live’ photo, an iPhone function which lets you take successive frames when taking a picture. This can be converted into a normal video which Hannah did to share it on Facebook.
She added: "It's quite demonic in the way it's crawling and has long limbs. It never changes its form and if it was smoke it would change.
"I followed it with my torch, watched it back, then turned to Dave and said 'I've just seen a ghost and I've got it on camera'. I didn't feel scared.
"When I sense things I always get my camera out because you don't always see things with the naked eye. That's why I caught it.
"I think it's such an incredible image that I wanted to share it. The kids were blown away by it when we sent it to them.
"I've had so many messages about it. It justifies our feelings about it. There aren't many like this out there and we've got no logical explanation."
Hannah's partner Dave, 52, said: "I've always been really sceptical but literally every hair from my feet to my head stood on end. I asked her to show me again. I loved it.
"I wasn't scared. I was just glad to see something because I've always said that I'd need to before I believe stuff like that. This makes me believe there is something."
The spooky footage has amassed more than 500 reactions and almost 2,000 comments and it's no surprise that people are totally freaked out after watching it.
But it doesn’t sound like the couple have been deterred from returning to the hair-raising location as they plan to return to walk their dogs and keeping their eyes open for any other spooky happenings in the future.
Let’s hope they have Scully and Mulder on speed dial!
