Why does the apparition of a woman return to haunt a love-sick traveller?

In this "real-life" ghost story from 18th century Wales, a man's ill-fated visit to his sweetheart' ends with a "terrifying" encounter with the so-called Hanged Lady.

But this was not an isolated incident - why did she return again and again to haunt him? And how can he end his ordeal?

One person who attempted to solve the riddle was a man of the cloth, but far from solving the case the mystery only deepened when the church man went exploring....

In this extra eerie episode the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast, join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he delves into the case of the Hanged Lady, which was recorded by first-hand accounts centuries ago and has an unexpected twist at the end.
