Im an ordinary woman from an ordinary Northern town who listens to and collects the experiences of people who have seen impossible creatures or experienced the strangest of events. Im a lover of nature and have a love of FolkLore and early customs here in the UK. I have spoken to hundreds of witnesses and their accounts can be found here or by searching British Bigfoot Map which you will find on the title page. I also have youtube channel where I share the stories and podcasts on this amazing subject. If you have had an experience or would like more information on the British Bigfoot please contact me at
Another update from Mike out in the field. Mike has been searching for evidence of any kind, he looks for prints, contacts locals and ask if any strange or unknown creatures have been seen in the area, he asks farmers about missing stock or strange animals around. He is visiting woods all across the UK and he also takes accounts from people who have had strange canid sightings of their own.
Area- Sirhowy Forest, near Crosskeys Wales
Weather- Clear, dry with scattered cloud cover
Start time- 11.00 hrs – 13.00 hrs
Today’s visit will be to Sirhowy Forest near Crosskeys in Wales. I left Reading at around 09.15 am and arrived in Crosskeys at 10.45 am. I started walking up the road towards Sirhowy Forest at 10.50 am and after a good 5 minutes I reached the first Public Footpath that leads into the Forest, which led me up a 70 meter or more incline to the top of a very steep slope.
When I reached the top I sat down for a cup of coffee and some sandwiches, on a tree stump and after about 15 to 20 minutes the Birds stopped singing and sure enough the whole area went quiet, at this point I had a strong urge to keep looking to my right, and this was when I heard a very deep throated growl that came from my left, which had me turning left quickly and almost jumping with fright trying to see where the growl had come from.
Liam Witness Account: I contacted you today as I have been experiencing some strange howls and noises close to home and I wondered if any of your readers had experienced anything of a similar nature. I’d say the first time I had ever noticed anything I would have been about 10-11 yrs old, it was just after I’d gone to bed in the summer and there were dogs barking everywhere along the streets and I was at my window listening to all the noise and commotion, after around half an hour of it starting all the barking stopped suddenly and I could hear a faint howl that sounded as if it was kind of distorted. Not a howl you would expect to hear like foxes or dogs, this howl was really strange. So I went and got my Mum so she too could listen to it and tell me what it was. She was stood at the window with me smirking at first as if she was just going along with it to humour me as I was young, but then she heard it herself and her face immediately dropped and she quickly said “Oh it’s nothing” I almost believed her but as soon as she said it she went all the way around the house checking that the doors were locked and closing all of the curtains. This might have been at around 9 pm because I remember it being around summer time and it was still pretty light outside
The second time was quite a long while after as I’m 21 now and I started to notice things again late last year around September time. It had started with minor things such as what I can only describe as hearing what sounded like a dustbin being dragged down the street at a ridiculous speed, then later in the night there were obvious sounds of things being thrown and hitting the wire fence on the field across the road from my house. I think the strangest of that was possibly hearing those noises and then hearing the horses in the field sounding like they were petrified and stampeding around. There were two nights where there was really long drawn out groaning sounds that would get closer to the house and then fade away, and this would repeat and then get closer again, both times they’d persist for around about an hour, maybe slightly longer but during that time every animal including the usually very loud dogs in the street were completely silent? When the noise stopped it seemed like every animal was in panic mode, or shaken up somehow?
One thing I will mention but I’m not entirely sure if it has a reasonable explanation or not is a night in August last year, I could hear a toddler murmuring outside on the street as if it was upset and I shrugged it off because the folk across the road often have their grand kids round and they are usually playing in the garden at daft times till late. After I had tried to ignore it for probably 10 minutes it went from murmuring to absolutely stomach churning screaming, It didn’t sound like kids playing at this point so I jumped out of bed and got dressed, I grabbed the bar we use to open and close the loft hatch without even realising and I ran outside thinking some child was being hurt or abducted? The moment that I got outside it stopped, everything was deadly silent, no-one was around, and that’s when it hit me about hearing from people with Dogman and Bigfoot encounters, where the creature may imitate sounds of children in distress or shout your name to lure people outside?
But at that point I put that out of my mind and I tried to rationalise the experience and I ran up and down at least five different streets looking for whatever made the noise and I saw nobody, and I didn’t see anyone who had come outside because they heard the racket too? There wasn’t even a house with its lights on with people looking out off the windows or twitching the curtains, it was deadly silent. The next day I asked my parents about what had happend in the night and they didn’t even know I’d gone out of the house let alone heard a kid screaming. Which I thought was strange because I literally burst out of my room and sprinted down the stairs not caring about making noise or waking anyone up. I have a recording of the “groaning” type noise I would be interested in knowing what people think it was because I have no idea at all? (included in video below)
For all we appreciate the “face finders” who search video or images for “faces” They can sometimes be misled by the tool used to take the original image.. Its all about the Pixilation Folks!!. As we can see here Bigfoot Tony has once again said what a lot of us are thinking. Unless you know the ground or what device was used to take the image it really is impossible to gain a clear imagine or knowledge of the ground and terrain, a simple bush filmed in close up can look like a thick forest and ofcourse the device you use to view the image can have a massive impact on what you see.
This first image was taken with an iphone 7 zoomed in. As we can see what looks like a Bigfoot looking through a gap in the trees, with fingers touching the branch,yet the image looks totally different when taken with a professional camera. As the second image was taken with Canon 5d mk3. What appeared to at first be a “face” is now clearly seen as shadow and leaves.
Here we can CLEARLY see that a blurred and distorted image of what might look like a Sasquatch, is in fact (as in most cases) is just leaves and shadow. When taken with a camera suitable to do the job what you get is a much clearer idea of the area itself and what is paradoilia and what is real. Google Map Images or Screen grabs from Youtube videos are flooding the groups, forums and the Bigfoot community feeding the mis -information. And I have to agree with Bigfoot Tony on this.
Myself along with Chris Turner, Darren Howe, and Rob Leigh visited the areas of the Sightings and a number of Forested Areas along the River Tay, Before travelling North to visit Isabella at her habituation site. It was a very long drive North but worth every hour just to see not only Isabella and thank her for sharing her wonderful Journals with me, but also to see the site and to walk where our Forest Friends have walked. There are not words to describe how beautiful this area was, and how easy it would be to hide away unseen in any number of thick forested areas, streams, brooks and burns abound with multiple food sources and wildlife. Travelling South back to our base camp we visited a number of the woodlands to see how diverse they were and we were not disappointed. There were many Hares running the roads and lanes, along with Deer and Pheasant, Grouse, Geese, Boar, Squirrels and Pine Martens to name just a few, along with well stocked Rivers and Lochs, High Mountain ranges and rich deep Valleys it is no wonder this area is one of the oldest areas in the UK to have Lore and written accounts of our Wild Folk. We continued South along the Green Corridor in to the Lake District and the sighting areas there.
From America and Canada accounts of Bigfoot or Sasquatch are plentiful, but would it surprise you to know almost every country in the world has a history of people reporting Upright, Bipedal Hair Covered Figures, that live within the woods and forests. From the Inkadu to the Genoskwa or Hairy Man or Almas, Yeti and Barmanou . Join me for exclusive accounts from across the Globe. Guest Live feeds and hear the Sightings before they go onto the Map. Maybe you will be the next witness to our many Hairy Folk. World Wide Bigfoot Map
And Thank You to everyone who has supported me all of these years, I would like to bring you even better content and World Wide reports of which I have many. As the reports continue to come in from all across the Globe, from Ireland to Portugal, Russia and Finland the sightings of upright hairy Creatures keep being reported.
I was chatting with one of my friends who also has an interest in the weird and the wonderful and we were discussing that not only do we get face to face accounts of creatures that come in and the figures that are seen but also the amount of Growls and Howls that get reported across the UK by ordinary people just going about their day, Unexplained Screams, Whoops, Howls and Growls some reported as Screeches or Blood Curdling Groans, my friend went on to tell me his experiences with something unseen that growled at him and his Mother, here is his account in his own words: Me and my mum went on holiday to Devon in the early 90’s possibly around 95 at the time we were on a trip to the Devonshire Coast and one evening we went to visit my Auntie and Uncle and my Cousins as they were staying in another holiday camp not too far away. I remember it was getting a bit late and we knew the entertainment planned by the holiday park for that evening was pretty much the same that we had seen at our camp the previous nights and we decided to go back as we were both hungry and we could get some food on our way back to the camp we were staying at.
MONETT, Ark. (AP) – Authorities say an Arkansas man under investigation for claiming he tracked Bigfoot for the U.S. government has been arrested on a child pornography charge. Original Source
The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that 46-year-old Keith Barnes was arrested last week. Lawrence County sheriff’s officials say they received an anonymous tip that Barnes viewed or possessed child pornography during their impersonation investigation.
The investigation began after people reported seeing Barnes wearing a uniform with a badge and claiming he was a cryptozoologist with the Interior Department. The department says that job title doesn’t exist and Barnes doesn’t work for the agency.
Barnes was released from jail after posting bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney, and Barnes doesn’t have a publicly listed phone number. He’s scheduled to appear in court June 18.
A couple driving from Manchester on their way to visit friends were driving along the Stocksbridge Road around 4pm when they heard a voice from the back seat say “look out” very loudly, at which point the lady who was driving and her husband in the passenger seat observed a man in old fashioned clothing stood to the side of the road. He was just standing there as the lady applied the brakes in shock he promptly vanished. Needles to say that shook them up, but what puzzled them more was the warning voice that came from an empty back seat. I can tell you with certainty that this couple are not given to flights of fancy or melodrama. They both described an old man in old naval clothes, bell bottoms and all. There are many accounts of a ghost or spirits along the road and the bypass itself has a number of strange stories attached to it.
