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.

Liam Witness Account: I contacted you today as I have been experiencing some strange howls and noises close to home and I wondered if any of your readers had experienced anything of a similar nature. I’d say the first time I had ever noticed anything I would have been about 10-11 yrs old, it was just after I’d gone to bed in the summer and there were dogs barking everywhere along the streets and I was at my window listening to all the noise and commotion, after around half an hour of it starting all the barking stopped suddenly and I could hear a faint howl that sounded as if it was kind of distorted. Not a howl you would expect to hear like foxes or dogs, this howl was really strange. So I went and got my Mum so she too could listen to it and tell me what it was. She was stood at the window with me smirking at first as if she was just going along with it to humour me as I was young, but then she heard it herself and her face immediately dropped and she quickly said “Oh it’s nothing” I almost believed her but as soon as she said it she went all the way around the house checking that the doors were locked and closing all of the curtains. This might have been at around 9 pm because I remember it being around summer time and it was still pretty light outside
The second time was quite a long while after as I’m 21 now and I started to notice things again late last year around September time. It had started with minor things such as what I can only describe as hearing what sounded like a dustbin being dragged down the street at a ridiculous speed, then later in the night there were obvious sounds of things being thrown and hitting the wire fence on the field across the road from my house. I think the strangest of that was possibly hearing those noises and then hearing the horses in the field sounding like they were petrified and stampeding around. There were two nights where there was really long drawn out groaning sounds that would get closer to the house and then fade away, and this would repeat and then get closer again, both times they’d persist for around about an hour, maybe slightly longer but during that time every animal including the usually very loud dogs in the street were completely silent? When the noise stopped it seemed like every animal was in panic mode, or shaken up somehow?
One thing I will mention but I’m not entirely sure if it has a reasonable explanation or not is a night in August last year, I could hear a toddler murmuring outside on the street as if it was upset and I shrugged it off because the folk across the road often have their grand kids round and they are usually playing in the garden at daft times till late. After I had tried to ignore it for probably 10 minutes it went from murmuring to absolutely stomach churning screaming, It didn’t sound like kids playing at this point so I jumped out of bed and got dressed, I grabbed the bar we use to open and close the loft hatch without even realising and I ran outside thinking some child was being hurt or abducted? The moment that I got outside it stopped, everything was deadly silent, no-one was around, and that’s when it hit me about hearing from people with Dogman and Bigfoot encounters, where the creature may imitate sounds of children in distress or shout your name to lure people outside?
But at that point I put that out of my mind and I tried to rationalise the experience and I ran up and down at least five different streets looking for whatever made the noise and I saw nobody, and I didn’t see anyone who had come outside because they heard the racket too? There wasn’t even a house with its lights on with people looking out off the windows or twitching the curtains, it was deadly silent. The next day I asked my parents about what had happend in the night and they didn’t even know I’d gone out of the house let alone heard a kid screaming. Which I thought was strange because I literally burst out of my room and sprinted down the stairs not caring about making noise or waking anyone up. I have a recording of the “groaning” type noise I would be interested in knowing what people think it was because I have no idea at all? (included in video below)

A Lady contacted me through Facebook and she shared her story about a strange animal she encountered whilst out walking the dog.
Witness Account: In the early 1990’s I rented part of a large house in the Costwolds in the vicinity of Meon Hill. The house was surrounded by private land and farmland and it afforded me the opportunity to walk my dogs wherever I wanted for as long as I wanted without seeing another soul.
One day I had not long left the house and passed from a mown field into a wild overgrown one when I had an overwhelming feeling that something or someone else was nearby. I stopped and my dogs ran on ahead. I scanned all around me and saw nothing, but such was the feeling of not being alone that I persisted and finally looked further afield to see a gingery head and shoulders just above the long grass.
