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.
Encounter report via phone on 5-1-2018:
Robert is a retired level four engineer. He worked for Honeywell Aeronautical Division. He is now 74 years old.
The two men were hunting wild hogs. As they entered a field a Bigfoot was standing approximately 30 yards from them. It was a bright, sunny day and the creature stood upright and was facing them. No expression on its face. It was about 6-7 feet tall, very wide at the shoulders, muscular, nasty-looking reddish-brown hair with Spanish moss hanging in the hair, conical shaped head, large black eyes, flat nose and a grey face.
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.
I was contacted by a gentleman on youtube who after hearing one of the video accounts from a witness on the Medway kindly shared his encounter with something strange whilst out on his mountain bike, as regular readers will know, mountain bikers and the mountain bike trails are a great source for witness accounts.
G: Well Deb this is the strange encounter I had in the woods late at night on a solo mountain bike ride in the winter. I will try and make sense of what happened but im not very good at putting things down on paper and its not the easiest thing to explain.. Im pretty sure this was back in 2011 as I was around 18 when it happened. It was definitely during Winter as the woods were bare of shrub and leaves and the muddy/clay ground was a nightmare to ride on . I used to be a very keen extreme mountain biker and I would go out with a group and also solo, My favourite time was the night rides during the winter months at which time I would usually have a lot of fun, but not this night.
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

The Yorkshire Wolds may be home to rolling green hills, hidden valleys and ancient villages, but this seemingly peaceful stretch of Yorkshire is harbouring a much darker side behind its picture perfect appearance.
