Werewolf Journal, part 12
Area- Sirhowy Forest, near Crosskeys Wales
Weather- Clear, dry with scattered cloud cover
Start time- 11.00 hrs – 13.00 hrs
Today’s visit will be to Sirhowy Forest near Crosskeys in Wales. I left Reading at around 09.15 am and arrived in Crosskeys at 10.45 am. I started walking up the road towards Sirhowy Forest at 10.50 am and after a good 5 minutes I reached the first Public Footpath that leads into the Forest, which led me up a 70 meter or more incline to the top of a very steep slope.
When I reached the top I sat down for a cup of coffee and some sandwiches after I sat down on a tree stump, after about 15 to 20 minutes the Birds stopped singing and sure enough the whole area was quiet, at this point I had a strong urge to keep looking to my right, and this was when I heard a very deep throated growl that came from my left, which had me turning left and almost jumping with fright trying to see where the growl had come from.
I repeated to myself the mantra of ‘I’m only here to look, observe and research I’m not here to hurt or steal any food’. I kept looking in the direction of the growl and I think I saw the side of a canine looking head peering around a tree looking at me, but I couldn’t be sure, I took some photos (Alas it seems this creature was not captured in the photo).
I left behind a ham sandwich and a sausage roll as a peace offering, just in case! and decided to move on along the footpath where my Wife and I had been earlier in the year back in February. After some time I reached an area which had some fallen trees arranged in a large rectangular enclosure of sorts, the trees had been placed end to end with an opening for something of which I was not sure to enter? Moving further along I came to the end of this stretch of the Forest where it was divided by a wire fence, but something had decided to push at least 4 trees over thus flattening and destroying the fence allowing easy passage in between the next section of the Forest and the one section I was standing in.
After walking around this area for several minutes I decided to call it a day and walk back to the car.
PS: Before I stared out, I did my usual mantra of ‘I’m not here to harm or hurt or take your food etc’ I’ve recently started a new mantra of ‘I’m here and I come in friendship so if you want to find me, come along’. Now give it 15 to 20 minutes it seems to me they will come along and find you, how and why they can do this, I have no idea.
Area- Hampstead Norreys Wood
Weather- Dry but overcast
Start- 12.10hrs – 13.05hrs
Today I decided to search a new area of a stretch of woods that runs parallel with the M4 Motorway. This area is called Hampstead Norreys Wood (Not the actual Village of the same name), I’d seen a structure of sorts when I drove back from south Wales about a week ago along the M4, so I thought I’d make that point of interest and go and have a look.
It took me about 50 minutes to find the wood and a place to park, I got set up and went off on my walk. I walked into the wood and almost straight away I noticed this location was a place of some sort of activity, not sure which type of Cryptid had made the signs, but it had bent over trees, den like structures and something I’d never seen before, trees placed on the ground at angles to each other or placed alongside each other either with ferns growing over the tree trunks or actually placed on top literally covering the whole area, this happened in at least two locations in the wood , but I’m not sure if this is natural or deliberate? This kind of feature actually stood out and something that impressed me!
Start- 13.52hrs – 14.50hrs
After spending nearly an hour in Hampstead Norreys Wood I drove over to Nuney Green and decided to search an area I had not been to since December 2016, here I actually got a photo of what to me looks like a Werewolf sticking a part of its head out at the top of a tree, this thing was inside a den back in 2016. Anyway when I got there the same den was still very much intact and looked as though it was still in use, I also found a new structure as well (I took some photos of this item) But the big find of the day was some prints that were about a size 14, I’m a size 11, the prints had a stride of about 46 inches, and a big pile of natural waste. The prints looked fresh but I looked around hoping to get a look of the creature that made them, alas I couldn’t see or find the culprit in question. Overall it was a good day, it seems like my furry friends are back but are more elusive than ever.
