Exeter, Devon EX6, UK. I thought of an incident that occurred several years ago on the edge of Dartmoor and I think it may be of some interest to you. I have never really been able to make much sense of it but thought you may be interested. I’m writing this account around 12 years after it occurred, however I can remember it quite clearly, I think it was around 1998 – 1999, I was staying at the Haldon Lodge caravan site near Kenford in Devon
There are more researchers than people realise, split across differing social platforms, that are out looking and making note of strange experiences and finds they come across. I am often asked if I do this work alone, and many are surprised when I tell them of hundreds of new people who work quietly in the background, searching online or out in the woods and the community is growing daily.. As we reach out into other subjects like Bush craft and Wild Camping we tap into another source, a source of people used to being out there in the “wild” used to the noises and finds that are natural, as you will see from the reports I will release this week, we are being contacted by them, everyday a new witness from the outdoors community comes forward. This is just one of the seven reports I have taken this week alone.
A man in England was surprised by a monkey-like animal he says came out of the woods in the county of Suffolk. Bury St Edmunds resident Geoff Knights says he was looking for “big cat signs” in the Offton woods, near Stowmarket, when the creature showed up on Aug. 14. “I have seen one big cat and several pug marks (name used for animal footprints) too,” Reportedly, he began hearing primate vocalisations and “crashing” sounds coming from the thick vegetation. “I heard it as clear as day. A monkey going woow woow. over and over Then I turned and saw it.”

Early in the winter of 2003 I had recently passed my driving test and was going for a run in my car with my friend ? and his girlfriend. I am from the Falkirk area so we came up through Torphichen and were not really heading in any particular direction. I was just happy to be driving and the view from the car was perfect. I saw a sign for Cairnpapple and recognised it so i started heading up that way and I passed the lay by at Cairnpapple.
(see earlier post for parts 1 and 2) The encounters at Paull seemed to be intensifying as if this thing was ‘testing’ us. Seeing how far it could go. This particular night we had lots of snow in Hull and the Paull area. By the time we got to our spot down Newlands lane the snow was a couple inches deep at least but it had stopped. My memory is hazy but i believe it was either late 02 or very early 03. Our routine and sightings of ‘it’ had taken over the pool games. Now we didn’t go out for pool as such but more to experience this…whatever it was. Driving down the lane turning round and then pulling over in the passing place on the left had become routine although the snow bound road and countryside gave a different dimension to things. The most obvious being everything was much ‘brighter’ It was cold and very quiet as I let Patch back in the boot. We sat in the car, windows half down having our smokes talking in low voices. Watching the bend in the road ahead carefully, ears pricked for any noise..nothing?? There was no unusual activity.
NORTHERN IRELAND — A man says he has spotted an unknown creature walking on two legs in a Northern Ireland mountain range.
The man, an avid hiker in his 50’s who chose to remain anonymous, said he was exploring an isolated area of the Sperrin Mountains in December 2015 when he came upon the unidentified creature.
“I had walked to three hill tops surrounded by dense forest and was heading back up a hill towards a tree line to my car,” he told Debbie Crossley Hatswell, who has been investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon in the United Kingdom for a few years.
I was in contact today with a lovely lady who I shall refer to as Isabella, before I continue I would like to keep Isabella’s identity and area a secret, as the account unfolds you will no doubt understand why.
The witness herself was happy to be named, but we both decided in the interest of our Forest Friends Anonymity was probably the best route to take. I can’t thank Isabella enough for allowing me to share this moving and inspiring account with you all.
According to an article in the Daily Star Newspaper
Chilling accounts of the UK’s own Bigfoot are fairly common, and many claim to have spotted a glimpse of an ape-like creature roaming the countryside. It comes just months after a photographer told Daily Star Online that he may have captured the first ever footage of a Bigfoot roaming the British countryside.
One such bizarre sighting has been reported by monster hunter Jonathan Downes, who says he had a very “peculiar” encounter which he “still can’t explain” today. While investigating a string of sightings at Bolam lake near Newcastle in Northumberland he claims to have seen an man-like person leaping through a bog.
Torphins Aberdeen – A Huge Hairy Figure Chases Car, July 1994
(Posted in The Fortean Times 2006) Local men, Pete and George, were walking through a forestry track in woods near their home in Torphins, Aberdeen. When they were nearing the end of the track, Pete saw a dark figure run from the trees on the left across the track, before disappearing into the trees on the right. At first Pete thought it was a man but the figure left a strange foreboding in him. George did not see the figure and was busy telling Pete he was imagining things when a face appeared from the trees behind Pete’s back and looked right at George. George was chilled to the bone as the face “looked human, but was not human”. It darted away just as quickly, and for some reason George threw a large stone in it’s direction. The two friends then left the area feeling somewhat unnerved, but as it was a walk they had to do on a regular basis, they knew they would have to return.
