A FATHER and son who went out taking pictures at a former seminary have made a ghostly discovery.

Craig Wilson and son Joseph, 15, from Prescot, were out exploring around St Joseph's seminary in Up Holland taking photographs of the site.

However, a couple of days later they noticed they may have captured more in their pictures than they first realised.

Craig said, upon reviewing the images a couple of days later, they noticed that one appears to show three ghostly images in the window under the clock.

Figures of a man, woman and a child can be spotted in the window in the spooky photograph.

St Joseph's was a Roman Catholic seminary and boarding school, built in 1880.

The building, now derelict, has been closed since 1992.

"It's a hobby, for me and my son to spend some quality time," said Craig, 49.

"We went up to St Joseph's Seminary, it's a good spot to go, I was just taking pictures from the outside.

"When we got home I went through the pictures and my son pointed out we could see three figures at the window," added Craig, a landscape gardener at Knowsley Council.

"I have shown my friends and every person who has seen it says 'wow, it's spooky that'," he added.

"I am not a believer in that kind of stuff but I took the picture and know it's not been doctored or anything. It's given me second thoughts!"
