Two Boys see ” a huge, hairy and thick with muscle creature” in Tarleton Lancs 1996

I was contacted on 13/1/16 by Mark Farnell who wished to report his account of something that happend to him and his friend when they were young boys living in the Tarleton Area of Lancashire.  As most of us did back then he was out with his mates, a day in the local woods would bring us a lot of joy and excitement, on this occasion they got a little more excitement than they initially planned for.  Whilst playing amongst the trees they noticed a strange “hunched hairy creature” watching them.

Witness Account: Mark Farnell: Back in July of 1996, when I was 13 years of age, my friend and I witnessed something in the local woods of the small village I lived in that to this very day I can not explain.  I have tried to work out what I saw and like many people in the UK who have seen a similar thing I can only describe it as an “Ape like human looking creature covered in hair”.

Wansted Dark Hairy Creature’s. Are bears running loose in UK woods?

PARK officials have denied a Bigfoot-like creature is on the loose in Wanstead’s woods after a “strange and hairy” bear-like animal was spotted by a fisherman.  Trainee fitness instructor Michael Kent said he was “stunned” when he saw the “hairy, dark creature” during an evening fishing trip in the Hollow Ponds area of Epping Forest, on the border between Wanstead and Leytonstone.

Mr Kent, 18, said: “I was there with my dad and brother. I was walking over to where my brother was when I heard this rustling sound. “I looked over and saw this strange, dark figure that resembled a bear. It was hunched over and I could see it had a really hairy back. I think it must have heard me and scampered off into the bushes after a couple of seconds. “It was getting dark but I still managed to get a good look at it. It was about 4 ft tall, so it was too small to be human, but not the right shape to be a deer, it didn’t have long legs or anything like that.

The Ivy Den Creature Sighting 80’s. “It had Red Eyes and was moving towards me fast”

In a small corner of Yorkshire within walking distance of each other there are two similar woods, in a similar setting with very similar accounts, they both happened to boys who were splaying out with their friends in these woods, they were all making noise and playing on rope swings, swinging across the streams, they each in turn encountered strange unexplainable figures that stood watching them, then chasing the boys out and away from the area. They were both  chased off and it seems “not caught” although I think it would of been very easy to catch them if that was the plan.. This behaviour seems to imply a diversion rather than an attack. As you will see in both cases, the boys who reported the incidents and the areas themselves have many things in common.  Children outside with friends enjoying the woodlands are a common source of witness reports.  As you will see from the MAP OF UK Accounts they are not alone.

The Bigfoots of Hamsterly Forest, NE England

Hamsterly Forest is a large forested area in the North East of England around 2000 hectares of mixed scenic woodland lying between the Wear and Tees valleys on the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Fed by a number of Rivers Hamsterley is a delightful oasis of broadleaved and coniferous woodland, sprawling along the sides of a sheltered valley.  It seems the vast forest is home to more than just the usual wild life.

Bigfoot has been spotted 10 miles from Bristol by ‘100% sure’ train passenger

Bristol Live

It has become almost an accepted phenomenon right across North America – but now a man has reported that he saw a Bigfoot-like creature walking in a field just ten miles from Bristol. The eye-witness said he was on a train from Exeter to Bristol Temple Meads, which was approaching the city on a bright Friday morning in November last year, when he saw a massive creature taking huge strides along a hedgerow. The report was made to the British Bigfoot Sightings group – a team of researchers based around the country who collect and investigate sightings of upright hairy ape-like creatures in this country.

Scottish Research Trip May 2018. British Bigfoot Day Investigation

Myself along with Chris Turner, Darren Howe, and Rob Leigh visited the areas of the Sightings and a number of Forested Areas along the River Tay, Before travelling North to visit Isabella at her habituation site. It was a very long drive North but worth every hour just to see not only Isabella and thank her for sharing her wonderful Journals with me, but also to see the site and to walk where our Forest Friends have walked. There are not words to describe how beautiful this area was, and how easy it would be to hide away unseen in any number of thick forested areas, streams, brooks and burns abound with multiple food sources and wildlife. Travelling South back to our base camp we visited a number of the woodlands to see how diverse they were and we were not disappointed. There were many Hares running the roads and lanes, along with Deer and Pheasant, Grouse, Geese, Boar, Squirrels and Pine Martens to name just a few, along with well stocked Rivers and Lochs, High Mountain ranges and rich deep Valleys it is no wonder this area is one of the oldest areas in the UK to have Lore and written accounts of our Wild Folk. We continued South along the Green Corridor in to the Lake District and the sighting areas there.

 

The Springwell Gorilla and The Windy Nook Screams, Washington NE

I was contacted by a gentleman who asked me if I had any accounts in the Springwell Area as something happened when he was younger that up until now he had no explanation for, a hairy gorilla like creature in an English garden is not something this gentleman thought other people had seen too, I advised him there are many witnesses and I would happily share his account in the hopes somebody in the area saw something similar, before this event or after. Or anyone in the UK who has seen a similar type of creature. This is the Gentleman’s account in his own words: Deborah do you have any accounts in the Springwell Area in the North East?  The reason I ask is when I was younger around 12 or 13 I would sleep over at my grandparents a lot during the weekends and school holidays and one night when I was staying over I saw what looked like a gorillas head peeking out from behind a tree and looking through the trees out side my window,  I think it was watching me in bed and I remember being so scared I hid under the covers for the rest of the night. If I had to describe it I would say, The face kind of just looked like a gorilla, with not much hair on the face, this “thing” had a short stubby nose, massive eyes that looked black but it was dark so I’m not sure if there was any colour to them in a different light? The hair around the face and head looked dark brown/black. I only really seen the head peeping round the tree… Before I made sense of what was happening and hid. I used to spend every free moment at me grandparents home in Springwell village, Washington NE before this happened.
