Lancashire Boggarts, Wee Folk, Tricksters or Woodwoose??

Growing up in in the UK you get used to tales of the wee folk, the trolls and pixies, the Fae and in Lancashire we have the Boggart, often described as small and hairy and a horrible appearance, blamed for many a missing horse blanket or milk from a step. Here are some of the tales of the wee folk I have come across whist researching our forest friends.

The Kits Coty, Giant Hairy Man Ape 1940’s

I was contacted by a YouTube user who was watching a video on an account I had released in 2017 on The Medway Area of Kent, the video triggered a memory told by a Mother who had a school friend when much younger who had witnessed a similar hairy creature which she called The Giant Hairy Ape Man: I remember my Mother telling me this story about a school outing where a young girl saw something very strange that scared her, so when I heard your accounts online from other people who lived around The Medway I thought you may find Mum’s story of interest.

Niners Quarry Part 2

See earlier Post: Days had gone past since our first encounter. We discussed at great length what it could have been. Normally you would have a rational explanation but we just couldn’t explain it.

My gran, who is sadly no longer with us, used to live on Broomhill estate, Knottingley. About half a mile north of Niners. So it was a good place to meet, Lee and myself got ready at her house. We were going prepared this time. I had a BSA meteor air rifle on which[…]

Little Golden Maned Men, Errington Woods 1/1/18 Trolls, Boggart? or small Hairy Folk?

YD: Deborah. I came across your website whilst searching for some help. I want to report something I saw on new years day this year while I was walking my dog. I know you usually take reports of  Bigfoot’s and Yetis but I don’t know how else to explain the “things” that I have saw or who to go too to report it. I guess you could call them Little Foots. Because I saw something in the woods that wasn’t large, but they were short. Two little small and hairy human type figures. I regularly take my dog walking in some woods near the village of New Marke. These woods are called Errington Woods. Well on New Years day I was on my usual walk with the dogs when I[…]
