Clapham Wood Mystery

Mysterious Clapham Wood
Clapham Wood Mystery is represented by a large collection of strange occurrences which take place in the Clapham Wood, West Sussex, England. It is said that people have encountered numerous strange apparitions in the woods; that they disappeared in there; that many of their pets went missing there, and so on. Since the 1960s the area has experienced a rash of UFO sighting, reports of people, experiencing nausea or the sensation of being pushed by unseen forces, or of witnessing patches of strange grey mist developing suddenly on pathways through the woods. Some people have also reported a strong sense of being followed. Studies with a gieger counter have revealed slightly elevated levels of background radiation in the area, which is surprising since the area is situated on chalk which is normally low in radiation. Early photographs of the wood appear to show a large crater or depression somewhere in the wood, though now the area is highly wooded and difficult to search.


Clapham Wood, unfortunately, is directly linked to four human deaths:

  • In June 1972 police officer Peter Goldsmith vanished and his body was discovered 6 months later.
  • In August 1975 Leon Foster’s body was discovered after a three weeks search.
  • Clapham vicar Reverend Harry Neil Snelling vanished in 1978. Three years later his body was found in the wood.
  • Finally, in September 1981 the homeless schizophrenic Jillian Matthews vanished and her body was found 6 weeks later in Clapham Wood.
