The Specter of Newby Church, also known as the Newby Monk, is the name given to an artifact found on a photograph taken in the church of the same name in North Yorkshire, United Kingdom.
- A shadowy monk-like figure
The image was taken in 1963 by the Reverend K. F. Lord. As the artifact appears to resemble a human, much speculation has been had regarding what type of person might be in the image. Most speculation has concluded that it resembles a 16th-century monk, with a white shroud over his face, possibly to mask leprosy or another disfigurement.
There are no notable accounts that we can find.
- In relation to the nearest furniture, any figure would measure at 9 feet tall.
- On looking over the image, photographic experts have concluded that the image is not the result of double exposure.
