Westminster Cathedral
      A sombre black-robed figure that slowly disappeared as it neared the high altar was seen by a sacristan, (a person in charge of the sacred vessels and holy vestments used in religious services), at this location.

      Although Westminster Cathedral itself only dates from 1903, this spiritual shade is thought to be that of one of the black-robed chaplains that attended the spiritual needs of the inmates of a prisoner-of-war camp set up on this site during the Scottish and Civil Wars of the 1600’s.

      The Catholic Church have always refused to discuss or comment upon the matter of this particular phantom phenomena.
