The Appeal of Ruins
Derdriu, you have hit on significant points, as you usually do, and you have done so quickly, especially as I was a bit slow to reply last night, as I was tired! I suspect that Snell haunts as he died with sins on his conscience,hence ...

The Appeal of Ruins
frankbeswick, Thank you for the reference to Potsford Wood gibbet. Internet sources gave me a clear idea of what happened before and after the 17th-century event, but not of why. Most sources indicated that the Snell remains were collected for ...
