I was contacted by a gentleman who asked me if I had any accounts in the Springwell Area as something happened when he was younger that up until now he had no explanation for, a hairy gorilla like creature in an English garden is not something this gentleman thought other people had seen too, I advised him there are many witnesses and I would happily share his account in the hopes somebody in the area saw something similar, before this event or after. Or anyone in the UK who has seen a similar type of creature. This is the Gentleman’s account in his own words: Deborah do you have any accounts in the Springwell Area in the North East? The reason I ask is when I was younger around 12 or 13 I would sleep over at my grandparents a lot during the weekends and school holidays and one night when I was staying over I saw what looked like a gorillas head peeking out from behind a tree and looking through the trees out side my window, I think it was watching me in bed and I remember being so scared I hid under the covers for the rest of the night. If I had to describe it I would say, The face kind of just looked like a gorilla, with not much hair on the face, this “thing” had a short stubby nose, massive eyes that looked black but it was dark so I’m not sure if there was any colour to them in a different light? The hair around the face and head looked dark brown/black. I only really seen the head peeping round the tree… Before I made sense of what was happening and hid. I used to spend every free moment at me grandparents home in Springwell village, Washington NE before this happened.

Hoping you’re well
I believe we share a couple of common denominators.
One is Dominic Campion who is a long time great friend and the other being the extraordinary and fascinating interest in the hairy man, Woodwose, Bigfoot etc.
I’m not one for shooting my mouth off, or to exploit or take advantage of a situation or even abuse artistic licence that no doubt we’ve both and many more have witnessed and seen over the years. But now after approx 6 years I think I’m confident enough to share my experience or should I say experiences without being judged or ridiculed which is the main reason I’ve kept quiet for so long. It was only by chance that I actually opened up to Dominic in the first place. This only came about after Dom had in April 2017 posted trail cam footage of a deer close to his home on Facebook. I left a comment referring to him searching for Sasquatch in that area and the rest is history as they say. To find out that one of my best mates was and is into the whole concept of the existence a large bipedal hominid roaming our earth was a major relief to me. I’ve always believed ever since watching the famous Patterson Gimlin footage way back when. But to actually think of the possibility of ‘some…..thing’ living on our shores is mind blowing and never ever really crossed my mind until my two encounters.
The Sun Reported Dog walker tells of close encounter with hairy Apeman who ran past her deep in the woods. A woman out walking her dog in an area used by many dog walker’s and hikers told a local newspaper how she came face-to-face with a hairy upright Apeman on the Sussex Downs. Caroline Toms, 34, took this grainy photo of a huge Bigfoot she claims ran past her in the woods. She was confronted by the terrifying beast — covered head-to-toe in thick black fur and crouching upright like a man — as she walked her border collie Ash. The description fits the describe of the British Bigfoot given by hundreds of witnesses over the years, said to be elusive and wild there are many theories as to what is behind these sightings, Ms Toms said the creature she saw resembled the American Bigfoot creature.
Sinister sightings at a Hull beauty spot are sending chills up the spines of supernatural enthusiasts. Faye Preston talks to Mike Covell about the Beast of Barmston Drain. Many who grew up in Hull will have happy memories of whiling away the summer holidays along the banks of Barmston Drain. But a shadow is being cast over that idyllic scene by strange reports of a “half-man, half-dog” creature that has been spotted stalking through the grass and killing anything in its way.
A researcher and filmmaker Chris Turner Youtube Channel, who whilst busy with his new film Elusive, a documentary on the British Bigfoot, was contacted by a fellow Youtuber who had some experiences he wanted to share, Chris then kindly passed them over to me here at British Bigfoot. The young man in question is making no claims here, he is merely sharing some strange experiences whilst out wild camping with friends that have happened to him and others over the years.
Witness Statement: My first experience with what has become known as the North East Derbyshire Moorland Beast was in the August of 1984. I was bivouac camping with my cousin at a place called Blackamoor, Totley just outside Sheffield. I was about 14 and I was visiting family in the school holidays. We had set up the tents and a camp, and it had been a fun day and as evening drew in we called it a night. I got into the tent at around 11 pm and we both decided to try get some sleep.
