The Holcombe, M.O.D Wild Creature, sighting 1980’s

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. And is an ideal area for the M.O.D and the land is posted for mines and artillery.

The Dorset Cave Man. Have You Seen Him? Lyme Regis

A MYSTERY ‘caveman’ was spotted in the woods along the coastal path.

He was snapped by holidaymaker Nuala Hamilton from the Mull of Kintyre.

Ms Hamilton, 43, had travelled to Lyme Regis on holiday with a friend and her greyhound Judy to look for fossils.

The group had gone to the undercliff area between Beer and Seaton because they had been told that it ‘was like walking through a rainforest’ when the incident occurred.

Ms Hamilton said: “It was a very weird experience but I didn’t feel threatened or scared at all.

Judy had run on ahead and normally greyhounds are very placid and don’t bark but she let out a high pitched bark, like she had been startled.

“We went to see what had happened and saw this man.

“I had my camera in my hand ready and just took the picture.

“When I first saw him it looked like he was doing Tai Chi but I don’t know.”

She added: “It looked like he had deliberately dressed up like a caveman. He definitely seemed to know what he was doing.”

The man then disappeared into the undergrowth. Ms Hamilton said: “I just thought he was a hippy type in the woods but I would love to know if anyone else has seen him.”

She added: “I didn’t get any bad vibes or feel vulnerable. He was just minding his own business.”

Cannock Chase Accounts Part 2, The Wildman seen by two witnesses.

The Wildman sighting summer 80’s,  Cannock Chase

Witness account: I was over Cannock chase with a girlfriend about 25 years ago on a warm summers night when she noticed something in the tree line watching us? And honestly when I looked, it looked like a large man in a fur coat standing in the trees watching us, when I turned on the car lights “it” ran deeper in to the trees. “He” was very big and it did look as though he was sloughed over as well, (leaning forward) the side of him as I saw him through the trees looked like a bodybuilder. I didn’t hear anything on the night, strange not even when he moved through the trees. I never knew there were strange things happening over the chase until one of my friends mentioned it about a year ago. This happened to me close to the German Cemetery at Cannock.

Large Hairy Man, Sitting in the woods, just watching me? 1998

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

The Ape like Beast of Brassknocker Hill Bath 1979

It was mid July 1979 that Ron and Betty Harper discovered that something powerful and unknown had torn the bark off their old oak tree; also the local animal population – including squirrels and birds – seemed to have vanished and sightings began to surface of something prowling the area day and night. Their goat was badly frightened by something on a number of occasions.

Man in Ireland claims Bigfoot Attack. Teddy Boy Bigfoot Irish Hoaxer

A Youtuber from Ireland claimed last month to not only having found Bigfoot in a very busy and well used forest in the UK, also that he was attacked and sustained a head injury in the process, as regular visitors will know, I do believe that Bigfoot is in the UK but I doubt the claims being made here.  The man who’s youtube channel is Teddyboybigfoot said on the video description “He got me when I was thinking about going close by his property! # sore feckin head” This video has been removed along with a member of comments pointing out his hoaxes by members of the public in his area and fellow Irish researcher who are outraged at this man’s behaviour.
