Hi my name is Martyn and I experienced something really weird when I was a kid and I wanted to report it and to see if anyone else has ever experienced the same thing. My family are a traveler family and in my younger days we would move from area to area as we needed too. At one point we moved from a farm in Blackrod which is near to Chorley in Lancashire, we lodged on that farm for a long time while we stayed in one of the caravans but there came a time when the farmer decided to sell up and move and when he did buy his new farm in Scotland we decided to move with him.
It was a long move as we had to travel out of England and into Scotland and that seemed a really long way to travel to a kid my age. The area we moved to was called Newmilns and it was in Kilmarnock. It was very remote and we were situated about 10 miles from the nearest town, sometimes in winter we had to literally use a tractor to get food from the nearest village and back because the snow was that deep .
Many people World Wide associate Sherwood Forest with a certain Mr R. Hood. But would it surprise you to know that Sherwood is home to more than just outlaws in green. There are some very strange accounts that have taken place in Sherwood and it is an area I have been interested in for many years now, The image below was taken just this weekend and shows some very strange eyeshine. The people who took the image have no knowledge of cryptids or Bigfoot here in the UK, the images were viewed by one of BBR’s researchers and I asked for permission to share them here with you all. No claims are being made here, simply an images that is a little out of the ordinary to say the least.
IN the wilderness of America’s forests, a Bigfoot hunter examines fresh evidence that the ape-man still lives… a missing Cheeto puff from the snack bowl. Real-life Indiana Jones Adam Davies, 46 – from Stockport no less – says: “There were four Cheeto puffs last night – and now there are three. One has been taken! One has been taken!” Twice divorced Adam Davies – a former call-centre worker turned monster detective – has spent almost 20 years and £60,000 tracking the hairy knuckle-dragger across the globe without ever once catching sight of him. If only he hadn’t gone to his tent when the monster dropped by for a Cheeto – a US snack similar to a Wotsit.
A menagerie strange and elusive creatures from around the world
Most of us are familiar with the stories and legends surrounding such mysterious and elusive creatures as Bigfoot or Yeti, The Loch Ness Monster and Chupacabras. But there is a host of lesser-known yet equally enigmatic creatures that have been spotted around the world — spotted often enough that they have been given names. They’re weird, they’re evasive, and they’re very often dangerous. Here are some of the world’s strangest crypto-creatures:
The Jersey Devil
Background: The creature known as The Jersey Devil has been roaming the pine barrens of New Jersey since 1735. Sightings are still reported today. It has been estimated that more than 2,000 witnesses have spotted the entity over this time. Panic over alleged sightings has sent terror through towns and has even caused schools and factories to temporarily shut down. Most researchers believe, however, that the Jersey Devil is mere legend, a mythical beast that originated from the folklore of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Others, of course, disagree.
Description (from an eyewitness): “It was about three-and-a-half feet high, with a head like a collie dog and a face like a horse. It had a long neck, wings about two feet long, and its back legs were like those of a crane, and it had horse’s hooves. It walked on its back legs and held up two short front legs with paws on them.”
It sounds absurd, but could it be true that an upright snouted creature is walking around the northeast portion of the North American continent on two legs? Included here are a photo and eye-witness descriptions from other encounters that have an eerie similarity to support the idea of an upright snouted creature.
The photo above is of a creature of unknown species standing beside a waterfall.

Following a painful breakup, artist and government hydrologist Sarah Smith (Lily Rabe, American Horror Story) sets out on a stream survey for the Forest Service in southwestern Oregon – a journey down a scenic river that leads her to remote wilderness surrounded by scorched landscapes. Sarah also suspects she is being followed by an unseen presence, and visits from this “Big Man” (Isaac C. Singleton, Jr.) continue at the remote cabin where she writes up her fieldwork.
As a mutual curiosity develops between them, her budding romance with a wilderness advocate leads to surprising revelations about the government, and Sasquatch. Directed by renowned independent filmmaker Christopher Munch (The Hours and the Times) and featuring gorgeous cinematography showcasing the natural beauty of the Oregon wilderness, LETTERS FROM THE BIG MAN has been noted as the first realistic filmic depiction of Sasquatch.
The ancient site of Stonehenge in Wiltshire has long been a focus of paranormal phenomena, and I have read some intriguing cases concerning this famous spot on the bleak Salisbury Plain. I will leave out the case of the disappearing hippies from the summer of 1973, who all apparently disappeared in a flash of blue light one night whilst camping out at the stones, as frankly I think it’s an old wives tale. Though if you do an Internet search for UFOs around Stonehenge, it is often the one that will come up. In spite of a lot of searching I have yet to find anything about this startling event other than as a sort of Stonehenge Urban Myth on paranormal forums. That Stonehenge is quite a magnet for UFO phenomena cannot be doubted though.
In March 2011 9000 secret UFO documents were released by the British government, which confirmed that Stonehenge has a long history of UFO sightings behind it. As far back as 1670 there were reports that somebody had seen a “strange ghost” near the stones. When the witness asked if it was there for good or evil, it declined to comment. The story goes that it disappeared, leaving behind an unusual smell (strange aroma’s are often to be found in UFO-related incidents).
In July 1877 locals reported seeing strange lights in the sky over the stones. Fast-forwarding to the 20th century there is a case from August 1957, when the military were enacting war strategies on Salisbury Plain. As they were getting ready a crew in one of the tanks reported seeing a large, silver cigar-shaped object, which the tank opened fire on. A few years later, in 1968, Arthur Shuttlewood, a local journalist and prominent figure in the Warminster Thing phenomenon, said he saw a UFO close to a ring of fire that emerged from the stones.
