A LEERING skull which appears on a visitor’s photograph has shocked staff at Wookey Hole Caves. 

An ancient monument in Supernatural Somerset for millennia, Wookey Hole Caves has always attracted the wild, wacky and downright weird. 

The legend of the Witch of Wookey Hole Caves dates back at least a thousand years – and it is thought the limestone caverns were used in ancient rituals dating back to the Neolithic. 

Investigated by archaeologists, explorers and mystics, it’s little wonder the caves have acquired the reputation for strange and supernatural activity. 

Mystic Uri Geller once carried out a psychic investigation into the caves and said there were ‘strange forces’ at work within the limestone labyrinth. 

But the latest visitor photos from Wookey Hole Caves have astonished hardbitten staff at Somerset’s leading inland resort. 

Miranda Litchfield said: “We get all sorts of ghostly photos from visitors but this one literally flew off the screen. 

“A visitor took this in the caves the other day - they messaged us to say it’s probably where the phone camera blurred but thought they’d share it with us anyway. 

“You can eventually work out the rock formations in the cave but it made me jump when I first saw it.” 

The image appears to show a human head with two eyes, nose and open mouth. 

“We are giving serious thought to getting this painted on to the walls for our Halloween week from October 20 as it is one of those unnerving images that stays with you long after you have seen it. 

“We know it’s just the rocks. At least, we hope it’s just rocks.”
