Demolition workers photograph ‘ghost of former guesthouse worker’
Demolition workers were given a fright after photographing a ghostly figure peering through the window of a derelict Victorian guesthouse in Kendal, Cumbria.
The image is said to bear an eerie resemblance of Frances Grimshaw, who worked at the guesthouse and stood for hours at the same window taking bookings.
David Grimshaw, a former resident at the property, said he was convinced the figure is the ghost of his mother, who died nearly a year ago aged 87.
He believes her spirit may have appeared to protest at the demolition of Meadowbank House, which she adored.
“That is my mother. I’m totally convinced – no one else looks like that. She had glasses and big earrings and she used to wear a dress with a bow at the front,” he said.
“She used to stand in that room for hours on the phone – it was the guesthouse reception and she took bookings from there.
