The Abernathy Ape, “It looked like a Bonobo Ape” Abernethy Forest 2012

My name is Al Smith but everyone calls me Hillbilly Al, which got shortened to Hal some years ago, and it stuck. After leaving school, I decided that I wanted to be outside as much as possible so thought that a job with animals would be ideal Through BIAZA I found a job as a field biologist’s assistant, which I loved and it gave me a great opportunity to travel and see some amazing places, meet different people and to see animals in their natural habitat.

I soon learnt that I had a real passion for primates and talked to people about furthering this passion into a career. I was told about Rodbaston College and found I already knew someone that was a lecturer there, so I enrolled. After leaving Rodbaston I decided to look into zoo keeping as the Field Research had become a little bit too much, and I had at that time met the girl who would later become my wife, and I wanted to spend more time with her. I was lucky enough to work at several zoos all over the UK, my favourite being Dudley Zoo, because I met some of the best primate keepers I had ever worked with and had total respect for them.

Tunbridge Wells Golf Club Bigfoot Creatures.

AN APEMAN standing eight feet tall and with “red burning eyes” has
been spotted lurking around woods … in Tunbridge Wells. Reports claim that a “hairy beast with demonic eyes” has been seen on the 200-acre Tunbridge Wells Common in Kent several times in the past. According to local community website Tunbridge Wells People, the Kentish Apeman – or British Bigfoot – was first seen 70 years ago during World War Two, but has “now returned”. It states that the last sighting took place on the edge of the woods when the “beast” roared, scaring off a man walking home through the woods. The witness said the apeman was “covered in hair” and had “long arms and stood at around 8 ft tall”.

‘Bigfoot’ Sighting in England, Claims Local Man

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 too,” Knights, also known as Crabtree, said. “Then I heard it as clear as day.”

Is Bigfoot in Britain? Mysterious figure lurking in Lincolnshire woods is claimed to be mystery beast

Friskney Footprint and Dark Figure

Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, who captured the image, did not see the image whilst out on the research day, it was viewed by a group member who claims it could be the most convincing evidence yet that Britain is home to the mythical beast.  Could these startling pictures be evidence that Bigfoot is lurking in the British countryside? The eerie image appears to show a large shadowy figure looming menacingly behind a tree in a Lincolnshire woods.

Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, 31, captured the picture while out walking in Friskney nature reserve and said he was stunned to spot the shadowy figure staring back at him from the photo after it was pointed out to him. After hearing of previous Bigfoot sightings at the nature reserve, Adam, from Nottingham, ventured into the woodland in search of clues. He followed some strange noises and suspiciously large footprints in the woods before capturing what he believes is the mysterious beast on camera.

Adam, co-founder of the British Bigfoot Research organisation, believes the shadowy figure could be the most convincing evidence that it’s living in Britain yet.   He said: “My investigators and I were tipped off that this small patch of woodland in Friskney could be a hotspot for Bigfoot beasts. “There is at least one reported sighting here, so we decided to check it out. “We stayed there for a few hours that day and felt watched and followed the whole time. “It looks like a shadowy figure stood within the trees staring at us from afar.

“I have seen one big cat and several pug marks too,” Knights, also known as Crabtree, said. “Then I heard it as clear as day.”

Reportedly, he began hearing primate vocalizations and “crashing” sounds coming from the thick vegetation.

“I heard as clear as day. A monkey goes woow woow. Then I turned and saw it.”

Knights reports that he saw an animal matching the physical features of a gorilla mixed with the “general shape of a man”.

Stanley co. Durham 74. Is there a Wild Man Roaming County Durham.

I was contacted by a lovely lady named Karen who had an experience many years ago in childhood that has stayed with her throughout her life, trying to find answers to explain what she saw or how it was even possible she searched online and found others who had experienced the very same things.  A strange Man like creature that others claim is impossible, but like myself and many others, that impossible creature we looked at that day, was so real it is still with us to this day, decades later the old questions of “how” “who” and “what” never go away. Hopefully by sharing her story with others Karen can finally find some answers and hopefully find others who have had the same experience and are out there thinking they too are alone.

Witness Account Karen: I had a strange experience as a child that I’d like to share. Im hoping to shed some light on what happened to me that day and some help in working out what “he” was. I was somewhere between 5- 7 years old and I was in the local woods in Stanley co. Durham with some older children just playing out as children do. The girls I was with were about 13 years old and nice sensible girls. Where I lived back then there were lots of fields and woods but it wasn’t remote or dense. It was an average town really with surrounding countryside and green belt land, small woods and streams. We were in playing in a clearing  and I think there may have been a rope swing. I looked up into a tree and high in the branches I could see a ‘man’ he was crouched down and he was holding a knife in his hand. He wasn’t like a normal man and I called him an Apeman or a Monkeyman. He reminded me of a caveman or Wildman.  I have included a picture I found online that resembles what I saw that day.

Large Dark “creature” Crossing the path. Dogman? Bigfoot? Briton Ferry Woods 1980’s

Witness Account N: Before I start I would like to say, Im really not sure what to call the “thing” “creature” “figure” that I experienced that day, I can only tell you what it looked and sounded like, and what happened, I have looked for answers for many years now and although there is so much information out there on cryptids, bigfoots and dogmen alike, there is no definitive guide, no chart you can plot it on for an answer, or a quiz you can take to see where your score leads.  You see a huge dark “figure” that moves not only on all fours but also on two, with ease, you hear it move through brush and felled trees easily as if the path was clear.  I can say it was massive, it sounded like a cow or a moose breaking through that scrub, it moved down the embankment, across the road and it was off into the shrub to my side with ease, it moved fluidly with purpose and I have no idea what it was.

MY ENCOUNTER WITH THE “GREEN MAN” reported Nov 2015 A Hairy Creature in the wood

My name is mark Thompson and I now live in New Zealand, but originally I lived in England near London, in a town called High Wycombe. My encounter involves the legendary Green Man. The Green Man is a legend of old, and dates back thousands of years just like the native American stories of sasquatch. In my case I grew up next to the Chiltern hills, which span across the southwest to the northwest of London. It is a very dense wooded area and has many legends of the Green Man, Herne the hunter, jack ‘o’ lantern. Willo the wisp, Jack ‘o’ the Green etc. Some parts of the UK were not inhabited until the late 1800’s so forestry was quite big in England.

What shadowed me in those bushes? and the Medway Werewolf account.

I was contacted by a gentleman on youtube who after hearing one of the video accounts from a witness on the Medway kindly shared his encounter with something strange whilst out on his mountain bike, as regular readers will know, mountain bikers and the mountain bike trails are a great source for witness accounts.  

G: Well Deb this is the strange encounter I had in the woods late at night on a solo mountain bike ride in the winter.  I will try and make sense of what happened but im not very good at putting things down on paper and its not the easiest thing to explain.. Im pretty sure this was back in 2011 as I was around 18 when it happened. It was definitely during Winter as the woods were bare of shrub and leaves and the muddy/clay ground was a nightmare to ride on . I used to be a very keen extreme mountain biker and I would go out with a group and also solo, My favourite time was the night rides during the winter months at which time I would usually have a lot of fun, but not this night.

The Caveman of Castle ring 500 B.C. and A.D. 40

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
