Matt Forde: Nestling amid the beautiful countryside of the Sussex Weald there is a little village called Burwash, where listed buildings flank the neat, meandering high street and rows of deciduous trees lead the visitor east to the 11th century church of St Bartholomew. A quaint and pleasant slice of English village life, indeed.

But underneath the picturesque, historic exterior lurks a dark legend concerning the woods that lie a little to the south. It is a legend that tells of the tragic demise of a man who would be fated to return from death to split the stillness of the East Sussex countryside with the horrific wailing of the tormented. The ghastly phantom that supposedly stalks through the aged trees of Gladwish Wood is believed to be David Leaney (perhaps Leary), a 19 year-old farm labourer who, despite insisting that he was innocent of the crime of murder, was hanged in 1825. Witnesses maintain that the unfortunate Leaney is ever restless, perhaps striving futilely to put right an ancient wrong.

Oh, a ghost that looks like a decomposing corpse. I was gonna say "FLESH DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY".

Anyway, that's... Strange. Ghosts usually don't manifest in such ways, though if his death was very traumatic it's possible. Still, odds are it's all a scam.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.

Trying to explain the unknown as the work of God is equally stupid as trying to explain it as the work of the human mind.

I haven't ever heard of anything manifesting as a "zombie" and walking through woods. This is an interesting article though. I agree with Lizardian_guy... odds are it's a scam.

I also haven't heard of a manifesting zombie, most likely its a scam but still very interesting.
