Could the ghostly image snapped at a museum be that of English scientist Edward Jenner could be haunting his former home?
Edward Jenner
Edward Jenner, the pioneer of the smallpox vaccine, spent most of his life in the town before dying there in 1823. There have always been stories of ghosts in the house, but museum staff have always laughed them off.

In the attic of the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley, UK, a recent photograph has captured the hazy image of a man sitting in a chair. The photo was taken by a BBC photographer, Chris Sandys, who has said that he is a skeptic.

He told reporters: “As soon as I’d taken a panoramic photo, I reviewed the image on the camera and straight away noticed this strange formation of light, shaped like a figure, through the doorway in the next room.

“Without moving I did a few takes to try and work out what had caused it but couldn’t see anything. It was so weird.”

The museum’s director, Sarah Parker said: “You can basically see through a doorway what looks like a figure reclining in a chair, only there is no chair there. Who knows whether it is Jenner himself?

“We have graffiti from soldiers previously billeted in the attic rooms from the late 19th century and perhaps this is one of them or even one of Jenner’s servants.”
