Ghost hunters believe they have caught a ‘child’s spirit’ on camera in an eerie abandoned manor house.

A creepy clip shows what looks like a ghostly child moving through a hallway in Wentworth Manor in Yorkshire.

A team from paranormal explorers Soul Reapers spotted the apparition while going through videos filmed at the home, which is the largest private house in the UK.

The 23,000 square metre building has fallen into disrepair over the past decade, reports the Mirror.

Team member Mark Vernon, who claims to have the ability both to hear and speak to spirits, said: ‘In the video you can see a dark figure just standing there watching the cameraman.

‘We didn’t see it until we reviewed all the footage afterwards. We were quite lucky, we’d only been there for about two minutes before we caught this.

‘We had heard some reports of hauntings there, people saying not to go there. And that definitely seems to be the case.’

The group of five used cameras, motion sensors and audio recordings in the hope of capturing spirit voices inside the 17th century mansion when they visited last month.

Mark, 51, said they were still working their way through the recordings – and it was actually another spooky discovery that alerted them to the child.

He said a different camera picked up a deep growling sound when one of the members entered another room.

Dark rumours surround the sprawling property, which has stood since 1725 but fell into disrepair towards the end of the 20th century.

Last year, chancellor Philip Hammond pledged more than £7 million to save the forgotten historic house.

There has been a number of unexplained sightings of ghosts and the spirits and children, and it even featured on the TV show Most Haunted.

Paranormal investigators claimed in April to have caught a ghost on camera inside one of the corridors- the first time they have done so in the show’s 15-year history.

Mark added: ‘One of our members heading into another room when he was growled at. It sounded pretty nasty, so we were concentrating on that when we found it.

‘I’ve been back a few times on my own in the daytime but haven’t found anything yet. We are planning to go back at night with the full team.’
