Naked man lurks on hill near 17th-century gallows & spooks families

January 2, 2022

A NAKED man who lurks on a hill near a 17th century gallows is spooking families.

He has been spotted several times — even riding a bike — and cold weather does not seem to put him off.

Residents in Combe, Berks, are concerned as the area — Gallows Down — is popular with families with young children.

One said: “It’s freaking people out. The guy just stands and stares. He hasn’t got clothes on.”

Another said: “It can be windy and cold up there on the hilltop but he doesn’t seem to worry about being naked, which is a bit disturbing.”

The 25ft gallows has stood at the beauty spot since 1676, when lovers George Bromham and Dorothy Newman were hanged after killing Bromham’s wife and son.

Some locals believe the area is haunted.
