Retired auxiliary nurse Elaine, from West Bromwich, West Mids., has researched the area and discovered the woodland is on the site of an 18th century coal mine.

Elaine, who has three grown-up children, six great-grandchildren and a great-great-granddaughter, said: “I love walking in those woods, it is so peaceful but one afternoon the mist was down and I took a picture on my phone.

“It was very atmospheric. I didn’t think too much about it until I got home and was scrolling through my pictures when I suddenly saw a child standing by the tree.

“He looked like he was wearing old fashioned clothes. I searched on the internet and discovered there are old mine shafts under the wood dating back to the 18th century.

“There were lots of disasters with tunnel collapses and children would often be sent down the mines so it’s possible it’s a restless spirit of one of the victims.

“I’m usually very sceptical about this sort of thing but now I’ve actually seen the evidence on my phone for myself I’m not so sure.”
