'SpookCam' from Newstead Abbey

Our webcam was searching for ghosts over Halloween at Newstead Abbey. Will you spot any ghosts in our archive clip?*
Spotters Guide:
Little Sir John Little Sir John
Sir John has been seen sitting in his favourite chair in the library, reading a book.
the white lady Sophie Hyatt - The White Lady
A devoted fan of Byron, The White Lady continues to walk around the estate of her hero. Not so likely to be seen indoors.
the goblin friar The Goblin Friar
Dressed from head to toe in a black cloak the Goblin Friar appears before a disastrous event.
Let's hope you don't see him!
the rose lady The Rose Lady
This lady could be hard to spot. She is mostly recognised by her distinctive Victorian scent.
the black friar The Black Friar
Unlike the other friar this one displays a much more caring nature as he points out the way to the lost.
