A couple from Birmingham believe they captured a chilling image of the ghost the Grey Lady who has supposedly haunted Dudley Castle for centuries.

They took the photo on August 30th in the courtyard and it was only when they were looking through the images that night that they noticed a glow coming from a window.

Amy saw a glow, as though a light was on, on the top window level. On zooming in we noticed on the bottom, inside an arch, there was a lady and what appears to be a girl, too. Neither of us are ghost hunters but we do wonder if this could be the Grey Lady ghost – the picture is quite clear.”

Built in 1071, Dudley is believed to be the most haunted castle in England.

The Grey Lady is thought to be he spirit of Dorothy Beaumont, who died in the castle, along with her baby, shortly after childbirth.

She'd requested to be buried next to her daughter and for her husband to attend the funeral but neither happened and so it's thought she now wanders the castle and its grounds.
