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.
New Release from Chris Turner UK filmmaker and dedicated reporter of all alternative subjects brings an exciting new look at some of the strange things being reported in a small corner of Yorkshire.
So what is going on here? Inter-dimensional visitors from the Otherworld? Advanced military projects? Extraterrestrials? Black magic? Spirits of the land? We live in a more unusual world than most of us ever really notice. The type of incidents detailed in this documentary occur the length and breadth of our island and planet and have done arguably for as long as we have existed. This is a classic piece of citizen investigation. Strange lights in the sky, people disappearing, big cats stalking the landscape, werewolves in the woods, fairy folklore, little humanoid creatures, this is high strangeness galore! The veil between worlds seems to be very thin in this area of East Yorkshire.
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.
These accounts came in to me through my facebook page Deborah Hatswell UK Wildman Reports and the lady who reported them has seen some of the Youtube videos of other peoples experiences, which then led her to the MAP OF UK ACCOUNTS and it was on looking at the areas close to home she was able to re-evaluate some of her earlier unexplained experiences in Essex when she was younger and out with her friends in the countryside around her home.
Hello Deborah I just stumbled across your fabulous YouTube channel and I have been listening to some of the accounts you have shared and it made me realise I too have experienced what I think my be some of the cryptid creatures we have here in the UK. I live in Essex and I love being out in nature, infact my whole life to date has been entwined with mother earth and the greenman and our early beliefs here in the UK. I have seen some strange stuff out there over the years when out in the woods or fields.
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.
The Scottish Sun Bigfoot investigator claims he has proof legendary monster is hiding out in SCOTTISH forest. Robert Shankland, 56, has shared snaps of what he claims is a 14-inch footprint left by the giant creature in Dumfries and Galloway.
Part-time labourer and gardener Robert Shankland has shared snaps of what he claims is a 14-inch footprint left by the giant creature in Dumfries and Galloway.
The 56-year-old has spent two years hunting for evidence of a “bipedal hominid creature” in Galloway Forest Park, which spans 300 square miles. As well as pictures of the “footprint”, Robert, from Burnside, Lanarkshire, reckons another image could show the creature staring at him from trees.
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
