The screaming stone of Postford Wood

I have already written about the haunting of Potsford Gibbet - LINK - but there is another interesting legend connected with the wood. According to tradition, there was a large stone or boulder next to the gibbet which screamed if you kicked it with your heel! Whether this story started circulating after the execution of Jonah Snell is not known.



It appears that the stone has long since vanished as a recent visit to the wood revealed not a single trace of it's whereabouts.
