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
There are more researchers than people realise, split across differing social platforms, that are out looking and making note of strange experiences and finds they come across. I am often asked if I do this work alone, and many are surprised when I tell them of hundreds of new people who work quietly in the background, searching online or out in the woods and the community is growing daily.. As we reach out into other subjects like Bush craft and Wild Camping we tap into another source, a source of people used to being out there in the “wild” used to the noises and finds that are natural, as you will see from the reports I will release this week, we are being contacted by them, everyday a new witness from the outdoors community comes forward. This is just one of the seven reports I have taken this week alone.
It was a bright Friday morning in November, I was catching a train from Exeter to Bristol at approximately 11:30 AM. The rush hour had gone at this point and there was probably only 30 to 40 people on the platform when the train rolled in.
The train journey was smooth the sky was bright & sun was shining down, soon we had branched away from the motorway and were between the hills and fields and the forest line.
In my carriage way probably 10 to 12 people most of them with their head in either mobile phones or morning newspapers. I haven’t been on a train for years so I was keen to take in the scenery. About 10 miles from Bristol we were travelling through an area and in the fields to my right I saw something large in the middle of the field walking, it was walking kind of hunched over, and all I could tell you was it was a black figure.
This is an account that came in through the Report a Bigfoot Sighting in the UK, my UK Facebook Page, The witness Mr. RJC shared this in a message with me: Hi I was recently down at Holme Fen which is an area of Special Scientific Interest, and an area which I have visited hundreds of times … The woods here are diverse and full of Silver Birch, Beach and Oak trees. Wild life abounds with many species of native and visiting bird life. The area has fisheries and The Great Fen is a 50-year project to create a huge wetland area. One of the largest restoration projects of its type in Europe, the landscape of the Fens between Peterborough and Huntingdon is being transformed for the benefit both of wildlife and of people.
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.
Growing up in in the UK you get used to tales of the wee folk, the trolls and pixies, the Fae and in Lancashire we have the Boggart, often described as small and hairy and a horrible appearance, blamed for many a missing horse blanket or milk from a step. Here are some of the tales of the wee folk I have come across whist researching our forest friends.
YD: Deborah. I came across your website whilst searching for some help. I want to report something I saw on new years day this year while I was walking my dog. I know you usually take reports of Bigfoot’s and Yetis but I don’t know how else to explain the “things” that I have saw or who to go too to report it. I guess you could call them Little Foots. Because I saw something in the woods that wasn’t large, but they were short. Two little small and hairy human type figures.
I regularly take my dog walking in some woods near the village of New Marke. These woods are called Errington Woods. Well on New Years day I was on my usual walk with the dogs when I heard these chattering noises, it sounded like two men muttering. and it sounded to me almost ape like. I looked into the trees where the direction of the sounds were coming from and I came across these two creatures both stood near a felled tree. They were about 3 feet tall and covered in tawny coloured hair. They were both males and I saw anatomy on one. They looked like small primitive humans and one was wearing what I can only assume was a loin cloth. They each had a mane of hair down their necks. They were very muscular and I got the impression that they were not children or young, that they were fully grown. They were just two little men covered with golden tawny hair.
Weather- Light rain, overcast but with good visibility
Search time, 11.25 to 12.35 hours. Nothing much to report back on today, very much a no show, no sign of anything out or moving around, I think it is still worth making a note of today as in future years I may see a seasonal or monthly pattern emerge, but the M.I.B with the Mercedes Estate was back again. No contact between him or I but his absence was noted and once again just an empty car.
I will continue to visit and note any changes and in the hopes of finding out who this chap is. Any advise on possible ways of doing this would be very welcome, Deborah has my email and can send it over if you would prefer to speak in private.
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.
