I have been looking for somewhere I could report a strange incident from last month that happened not to far from Stonehenge. Myself and my Mother saw something that we just can not explain, it was quite far away so I didn’t get a close look at the faces or anything, but you could tell it wasnt people and I’m used to seeing cows and farm animals from far away, because there’s animals everywhere in Salisbury, as you drive you get used to seeing animals or wildlife in the fields, but these were not Cows or Sheep, these”figures” stood out as odd, there were two really big “figures” in a faraway field that were standing upright and striding along quite fast together, one was light brown the other one was darker, they were moving at a fast pace away from us. We both were so shocked and we kept asking each other if we both definitely saw that.
Witness Account 7/12/2015 : I have been hiking since 2004 mostly alone and all over Ireland. In December 2015 I was in a very remote and isolated area of the Sperrins. 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 when I seen something very tall and large moving faster behind me one km away. It was walking heading down the hill towards me on a route I had just taken. I am not easily spooked but I did not hang about as I am of the opinion if it wanted to, it could have caught up with me easy. I have pondered this for a while now but I have not a clue what it was to this day, as I see people on the hills and mountains at various distances. But this was taller than a 6ft person at the distance I seen it. Eight feet plus is my guess. As I didn’t have a gun only hiking poles I was not about to wait and find out. My hiking bag now has binoculars added.
This is one of the first accounts I found when I joined the early British Bigfoot Research Team with Adam Bird. Back then the accounts were so rare we had hardly any new ones coming in, they were very few and far between, it does show just how far things have moved in the last six years alone. Now it seems as if we dont go a week without a new account coming in.
Kerry P: I wish to report something that I saw when I was driving close to Nottingham a few nights ago. I know you don’t have Sherwood Forest on your web page but I didn’t know who else to contact, there isn’t anyone else I feel I can speak to or who would believe me. Im a normal everyday Woman and I travel this road often and I saw something that I can not quite believe.
I was lucky enough last month to receive a comment from George Prices Daughter and I instantly wanted to not only pass on my thanks but also share her Fathers Account. For a serving soldier to make a statement that he saw a wild hairy human type creature whilst on exercise is not something we come across very often, it must of made a great deal of impact on Mr Price and I for one am very grateful he came forward and went on the record. It has made it easier for a number of other witnesses from the armed forces to come forward with their accounts also. Salisbury Plain is an old and ancient site set in the downs. Chalk based and almost flat, the area is not well forested but it does have a small pocket of woods and the River Avon runs close by and also the River Wylye
The net is closing on fabled American beast Bigfoot – thanks to scientific data collated by a Birmingham man. Toby Langford has used his maths and physics background to track the half ape, half mountain man. And the 45-year-old, who, until recently, worked in the payment department of an insurance company, has posted videos of his findings on YouTube.
Armed with the data, the Great Barr statistician and his partner Marie will head to America to search for Bigfoot. Despite his painstaking research, Toby, a Birmingham University physics graduate, is yet to be convinced Bigfoot is more than an American myth. “Some people believe in Bigfoot, some people don’t,” says Toby, “I’m sitting on the fence. “That’s the problem with our species. If a video is too clear, you think it’s fake; if it’s too grainy, it’s fake. “I think it’s very difficult to dismiss eye-witness accounts. These people know they haven’t seen a bear because it’s seven feet tall and standing upright.
First of all thank you for allowing me to share my experience. What follows is my true account of what happened to myself and my friend Andy in late August early September of 2011.
I have attached two images one is a map of Bonaly with a RED X marking the camping spot and the other is a picture of the reservoir with a RED x marking the camping spot there.

Way up on Holcombe Moor is an Army Training centre and lots of land owned by the M.O.D Posted with danger signs it is not accessible to your average human. But as this area is very close to the source of the River Irwell along which many British Wildman sightings lie. I recently got back in touch with the witness to see if they would appear in the new documentary Elusive, but sadly ill health and fear of being identified prevented him from appearing, but he did manage to fill me in a little on some of the details.
This is the original Account, which was taken by A. Bird in 2013.
D. B witness statement: I am an ex service personnel who wished to tell you about two separate sightings of what I believes is the same creature, over an eight week period in the 1980’s, both happened to me whilst training, up in the hills close to Holcombe, This is only a short hop from the Forest of Bowland and has many different habitats, with high wind swept hills and low valleys where its wooded and damp. It rains all the time. An is an ideal area for the M.O.D and the land is posted for mines and artillery.
New in today by the wonderful blog Beasts of Britain, Andy is one of the leading pioneer’s in the subject of the British Bigfoot, and has himself done many hours of outdoor research and is influential in bringing this subject to the fore of the UK’s Fortean thinking, I would like to thank Andy for his time and effort, late nights and wet days, trudging muddy fields and marshy ground, in the pursuit of evidence. And his unbending three thinking attitude, like the explorers of old.
