While reports of Bigfoot-like hairy wild men abound throughout Britain, there is one area of the country that seems to attract more than its fair share of such activity: Castle Ring, in the county of Staffordshire. Located near the village of Cannock Wood and constructed between 500 B.C. and A.D. 40, Castle Ring is an Iron Age structure commonly known as a Hill Fort. It is 801 feet above sea level, and it main ditch and bank enclosure is fourteen feet high and, at its widest point, 853 feet across. Another of our ancient sites here in the UK
Beast of Britain Blog today reported an account that came in to my facebook page. Andy Mcgrath did the work on this account as I was away. He had done a stirling job and I would like to thank him for helping me out.
THE APEMAN OF ABERNETHY FOREST
Satellite Map of Abernethy Forest
Abernethy Forest in Scotland is the largest part of what remains of the Old Caledonian forest, located in Strathspey in the Scottish Highlands, it is an area that comprises 4000 hectares of forest. It has an abundant red and roe deer population and black grouse and the capercaillie (wood grouse) as well as 70 bird species in total. There are otters and pine marten, as well as wildcat and red squirrel, multitudinous rabbits and ample wild food sources, like blackberries, cowberry, crowberry, sorrel and abundant edible fungi. The area has a tiny population, below 5000 people, nearly all of which reside in the towns of Nethy Bridge, Boat of Garten and Aviemore.
NEW IN TODAY. I would like to report a Sighting that happened only yesterday 18/6/18. It was between 1.30pm and 2pm myself and my partner were travelling on the A15 heading towards Lincoln. There’s a layby on the road which is roughly a mile or so from the Hibaldstow turn off. And as we were driving we saw an upright moving figure as we were moving along the road. We saw him about 20 foot past the layby. He was upright on two legs, all black in colour and heading away from the road, he was moving through the reed grasses and on into the bushes where we lost sight of him. I realise it was broad daylight and there was other traffic on the road, so this should not have happened. It wasn’t a dark lonely road at night or in the middle of a vast forest, which is how I’ve been trying to debunk it to myself, but nevertheless I cant talk myself out of what I saw yesterday. It might seem impossible to some but I am certain of what I saw and so is my partner.
I asked the witness to describe what she saw before we chatted so I did not influence her in any way which is something I do with all the people that contact me. I say ‘him’ because his energy was male, at the risk of sounding like a crazy person, I see aura and feel energies amongst other things. His energy continued to intrude in my thoughts for the rest of the day, he knew someone had seen him and he was worried. As for a description he was around 8-9 ft feet tall, and a dead black colour all over.
One other thing to note, I have a dashcam in the car so checked the footage in the hopes we had caught him walking away, and there’s a 4hr gap. My dashcam records anything out of the ordinary, ie: heavier than normal breaking and even when the engines off and stationary the sensor picks up anything close to the vehicle, randomly recording at 5 min intervals. The last recording was at 12.03 just before we set off for the A15 and then nothing until I used the car again around 4pm that night.
Ray Moore Witness Account: Plas Dol Y Moch outward Bound centre.
It would have been about April May 1966 not too cold not quite summer, I was 13. It was my school’s turn for the third year to have Plas Dol Y Moch outward Bound centre for a week, it had been gifted to Coventry Council by an old widow for disadvantaged kids to allow them to experience the wilds of the countryside and is still functioning to this day.
We would go canoeing, rock-climbing, abseiling and all that stuff, it was great. Also we were taught Orienteering, finding our way in the dark through woods using a map and compass.
I was contacted on 13/1/16 by Mark Farnell who wished to report his account of something that happend to him and his friend when they were young boys living in the Tarleton Area of Lancashire. As most of us did back then he was out with his mates, a day in the local woods would bring us a lot of joy and excitement, on this occasion they got a little more excitement than they initially planned for. Whilst playing amongst the trees they noticed a strange “hunched hairy creature” watching them.
Witness Account: Mark Farnell: Back in July of 1996, when I was 13 years of age, my friend and I witnessed something in the local woods of the small village I lived in that to this very day I can not explain. I have tried to work out what I saw and like many people in the UK who have seen a similar thing I can only describe it as an “Ape like human looking creature covered in hair”.
PARK officials have denied a Bigfoot-like creature is on the loose in Wanstead’s woods after a “strange and hairy” bear-like animal was spotted by a fisherman. Trainee fitness instructor Michael Kent said he was “stunned” when he saw the “hairy, dark creature” during an evening fishing trip in the Hollow Ponds area of Epping Forest, on the border between Wanstead and Leytonstone.
Mr Kent, 18, said: “I was there with my dad and brother. I was walking over to where my brother was when I heard this rustling sound. “I looked over and saw this strange, dark figure that resembled a bear. It was hunched over and I could see it had a really hairy back. I think it must have heard me and scampered off into the bushes after a couple of seconds. “It was getting dark but I still managed to get a good look at it. It was about 4 ft tall, so it was too small to be human, but not the right shape to be a deer, it didn’t have long legs or anything like that.
In a small corner of Yorkshire within walking distance of each other there are two similar woods, in a similar setting with very similar accounts, they both happened to boys who were splaying out with their friends in these woods, they were all making noise and playing on rope swings, swinging across the streams, they each in turn encountered strange unexplainable figures that stood watching them, then chasing the boys out and away from the area. They were both chased off and it seems “not caught” although I think it would of been very easy to catch them if that was the plan.. This behaviour seems to imply a diversion rather than an attack. As you will see in both cases, the boys who reported the incidents and the areas themselves have many things in common. Children outside with friends enjoying the woodlands are a common source of witness reports. As you will see from the MAP OF UK Accounts they are not alone.
