Ghost Cams

Ghost CamDid you know these were even a thing? Because I certainly did not.

In much the same way that many zoos offer live “animal cams” that let you watch pandas and wolves and naked mole rats cavorting, a number of purportedly haunted sites have set up “ghost cams” to give viewers the opportunity to glimpse something supernatural. There’s a suprising number of them.

The Willard Library boasts a “grey lady” and has several cameras in different locations. They also allow users to submit screenshots of possible sightings, and have a gallery of past submissions online.

Ordsall Hall apparently has a number of ghosts. Since the Hall is open to the public during the day, their cams only operate at night.

The Knickerbocker Hotel has several live feeds, plus videos and EVPs from past “encounters.”

David lives in a haunted house and has both live cams and running commentary on odd happenings in the residence.

The Paris Catacombs have an infrared cam set up in one of the tunnels, although you have to manually refresh the page to update.

Ireland’s Eye has a ghost watch at an old linen mill and invites visitors to report unusual sightings.

There are several others, although apparently a number of UK-based ones that were hosted on the BBC site have all gone defunct at once.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, some of the cam locations are nicely creepy.
