Wichling (Kent) - Wooded area and the church
A group of four people in the church yard at night reported seeing a small entity with glowing red eyes run by them.

Wickham Market (Suffolk) - Potsford Wood, B1078, gibbet marked by plaque
This is the location where the hanging of Jonah Snell occurred, though nothing suggests that he is the ghost in question. In 1997 a couple reported being harassed by a black shapeless object that moaned gently at them late at night when their car broke down near the site, while the 1980's sighting occurred in broad daylight; a truck driver stopped for a call of nature near the plaque, paused to read it while walking into the woods, and felt a tap on his shoulder. Turning, he came face to face with a skeletal form, hooded and dressed in robes. The truck driver ran to his vehicle and drove away.
