This will work better than the BB house in Deadset surely.

Step 1: Admit zombies don't exist...step 2: if they did exist you only have to look at the average castle or fort for ways to stopping them. Then sit tight till summer and watch them all decay. Step 3: clean up and go back to work.

step 4: Realize they do exist (they were out in force last week..)

Also, A castle or fort might be too big..you never know how clever the zombies would be. But judging from the average IQ in the general Salford area..

Ok so then stay in the middle east - during the summer the dead would rot to piles of bones very quickly.

Or go somewhere cold. The dead have no means of internal heating (unless they feed on Horlicks and I'm missing something). Frozen zombies would make a fun winter piñata

Perhaps time to make a zombie film in the desert?

Those are movie zombies...in real life a dead thing can't generate body heat and would freeze quickly

Which reminds me of an apallingly distasteful joke a colleague told me 27 years ago in our office in Riyadh. It was (obviously) in the pre-digital camera days, and my 50-something year-old colleague had just bought some 35mm film for his camera. He was holding the box it came in, taking time to examine it carefully (those were the days when minutes passed like hours, rather than the other way round, as now).

"ISO 100. Kodak Gold. Load and unload your camera in subdued light. D'you think this should be ok for here?"
"Yeah, should be fine."
"Saturated colours. Bright, colourful prints. That'd be alright for desert shots?"
"Yeah, sounds perfect".
"Wide exposure latitude; from two stops underexposed to three stops overexposed."
"Yeah yeah, plenty of margin for error."
"Store in a cool, dry place."
"Yep, need to do that. Where you going to keep it?"
Pause.
Deadpan face: "My wife's fanny."
