On the North West Coast of Scotland not only are there many Lochs, there are also many accounts of strange creatures and paranormal experiences around the Lochs themselves. On land as old as time its no wonder strange anomalies pop up consistently, but on one lone Loch we have experiences that are exactly 4 years apart to the day.
The Twilight Paranormal Group did some night investigation in Grovely wood, an area of reported wild man activity since the 1800. Whilst there the group experienced some very wildman like activity, Original Source for the full account.
Team Leaders Notes. Grovely Wood is situated on the outskirts of Wilton. With a Roman road cutting straight through the woodland and prehistoric earthworks contained within the area, Grovely also has a historic story to tell. Grovely Woods has two specific and most interesting stories associated with its area. Grovely Wood is a place that I have always wanted to investigate. I have been fascinated by these woods ever since I was a small child as people used to talk about them to each other and about the goings on there. I had only visited the woods once when I took my dog for a walk one afternoon. I was with a friend and although I did feel as if I was being watched, the feeling was not sinister. However my friend was afraid and could not wait for the walk to be over. Other people have also told me stories of their experiences down at Grovely. Recently one of my colleagues told me that she was walking through the woods with her child in a pushchair and her dog. She said that the atmosphere was so intense, she could not bear it. She also felt as if someone was watching her and she turned around and fled from the area as she felt so unsafe. Paranormal Investigator, Vikki has also had many strange and frightening experiences in Grovely wood when she was younger.
A couple driving from Manchester on their way to visit friends were driving along the Stocksbridge Road around 4pm when they heard a voice from the back seat say “look out” very loudly, at which point the lady who was driving and her husband in the passenger seat observed a man in old fashioned clothing stood to the side of the road. He was just standing there as the lady applied the brakes in shock he promptly vanished. Needles to say that shook them up, but what puzzled them more was the warning voice that came from an empty back seat. I can tell you with certainty that this couple are not given to flights of fancy or melodrama. They both described an old man in old naval clothes, bell bottoms and all. There are many accounts of a ghost or spirits along the road and the bypass itself has a number of strange stories attached to it.
I have been in contact recently with a gentleman by the name of Christian who has had some experiences in the past he wanted to share with me, he isn’t making any claims, merely a strange set of circumstances that have left him with questions he cant answer and the need to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this in this area or anywhere else in the UK.
This encounter took place near a village called Paull, several miles north east of the city of Hull. The year was 2002/03.
