.It could also be that other people saw this photo in books, and based their "true" sightings on it.
Whats funny is that many people have encountered a ghost that looks just like that, though the face is like that or a skelital or no face at all and at times have red glowing eyes. this is a full form of a type of shadow ghosts

Source..I was thinking that if it *is* a picture of a ghost, it's the ghost of a person with a white hood over their face (and apparently a dark hooded cloak on top of that). I've been googling everything I can think of to come up with a reason someone in Newby before 1963 would have been wearing such a costume, but so far I'm coming up blank. Medieval executioners wore hoods, but they were black hoods. In Victorian times prisoners who were going to be executed had a white hood put over their head at the last minute, but those typically didn't have eyeholes. British academics have traditionally worn hoods for centuries, but not hoods that cover the face. I'm stumped. Anyone from Yorkshire on here? Perhaps you can do better than I with your history. For one thing, you might look for accounts of someone who lived in the area who was outrageously tall?
The Specter of Newby Church.This photograph was taken in 1963 by Reverend K. F. Lord at Newby Church in North Yorkshire, England. It has been a controversial photo because it is just too good. The shrouded face and the way it is looking directly into the camera makes it look like it was posed – a clever double exposure. Yet supposedly the photo has been scrutinized by photo experts who say the image is not the result of a double exposure..The Reverend Lord has said of the photo that nothing was visible to the naked eye when he took the snapshot of his altar. Yet when the film was developed, standing there was this strange cowled figure..The Newby Church was built in 1870 and, as far as anyone knows, did not have a history of ghosts, hauntings or other peculiar phenomena. Those why have carefully analyzed the proportions of the objects in the photo calculated that the specter is about nine feet tall!

.I would also like to know any hostory about the church too, as far as I can remember there is no story behind that image other than the priest was taking a picture of the altar and the phantom appeared in the developed image.
Very Very odd picture... I wonder if people still have the original negatives ?..It would be interesting to see if it has appeared after being developed more then once?

.Ah the power of suggestion..on a more serious note anyone notice how much it looks like The Scream
When I first saw the picture, my first thought was 'Why is it's face melting?' But then I started reading some of those posts of you guys talking about how it looked like a hood. So I went back and looked at the picture again, and I guess it does look more like a hood. It really freaks me out though...Nine feet tall? Holy crap!
