Grovely Wood, Woodwoose/Bigfoot/chimera Multiple Accounts 1877 to 2013

I was lucky enough last month to receive a comment from George Prices Daughter and I instantly wanted to not only pass on my thanks but also share her Fathers Account.  For a serving soldier to make a statement that he saw a wild hairy human type creature whilst on exercise is not something we come across very often, it must of made a great deal of impact on Mr Price and I for one am very grateful he came forward and went on the record. It has made it easier for a number of other witnesses from the armed forces to come forward with their accounts also.  Salisbury Plain is an old and ancient site set in the downs. Chalk based and almost flat, the area is not well[…]

Poor Bessie Dunlop the Witch of Dalry. Burned for seeing a Greenman in 1576

  In Sir Walter Scott’s ‘Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft to J.G. Lockhart esq.’, Letter 5, we find an extract from the ‘Confession of Bessie Dunlop the famous Witch of Dalry burned at the stake in 1576’ which gives us a clue as to how woodland spirits were viewed by many in the Christian World of the Sixteenth Century:‘ She further confessed that one day while she passed through Grange Muir she lay down in a fit of sickness, and that a green man came to her, and said if she would be faithful he would do her good. In reply she charged him, in the name of God and by the law he lived upon, if he came for her soul’s good to tell her his errand. On this[…]

The Loch Of Skene Gorilla Photograph 2002. Is this the British Bigfoot?

Adam Bird‎, founder of BRITISH BIGFOOT RESEARCH on Facebook has shared some interesting stuff in the past. This latest photo he came across actually looks like the North American Bigfoot.

Here is the story, from the ‘Aberdeenshire Press & Journal:   An anonymous photographer snapped this picture which he claims is a Gorilla stalking the shores of Loch Skene in Aberdeenshire. The snapper is quoted as saying: “I do not want to be named in case my sanity is questioned”. He continued: “I was indulging in my favourite pastime of photography. I was returning to my car when I noticed some movement in a clearing of forest. Thinking it was a[…]

What it is like to be a Witness in a “Fortean” World.

“The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.” ― William Blake Very wise words, and ones I hold dearly, opinions are useful, they make us look at things from another persons point of view, to try and see through the eyes of someone you are not. Like the marathon runner who runs a race, to be told they didn’t by a man in his kitchen 1000 miles away from the race seems absurd I know, but sadly its what many of the witnesses to British Bigfoot are told constantly day in day out. Like the runner himself, the uninformed man’s opinion doesn’t affect the runners race, or his effort and the work he put in, it is merely the opinion of[…]
