Growls, Snarls, Shadowed and Limbs Being Thrown, Millbank Woods. Yorkshire 2018

Witness Account: I was out walking on Sunday 27th August 2018. It was around 7pm.  We entered Millbank woods at Kildale. ( Millbank wood is a peaceful wood a short walk from Stamner village. You can either follow the bridle path or go across the fields to get up to the wood which lies along the top of the hill. It is part of the Stamner Park walking route.) The path in the woods in parts is a valley, with sides that slope upward and the path is at the bottom. We walked down the path and then on down to the waterfall.  I felt as if I was being watched once I was down at the waterfall.  It was a horrible eerie feeling.  I walk all over day and night and this feeling has never happened before.  I was with my husband and we wandered around the base of the waterfall for a short time to give the dog a drink then we both sat down. As we were sitting there we heard a growl and the sounds of something on the path above us as if something had walked up above. My dog also heard the noises on the path and looked up.

A large stick came down at us. We brushed this off at first as it is a wood but then something else came down on to us. We sat there for a few minutes I felt very uneasy the whole time as though whatever it was up there was watching us, my husband also felt the same. We climbed up to the top of the path the same way we had come down and my dog immediately picked up a scent so I knew something had recently walked above us, within minutes.  I live in a rural area so my dog is use to picking up the scents of animals. He picks up scents of non human smells and I can tell by his behaviour. I can’t describe the eerie feeling of being watched from the trees. I wanted to leave immediately the feeling was that bad. We continued along the path. We heard another snarl and growl from in the trees. This was not a dog snarl nor was it people in the trees playing a prank, the area is very thick sloping down with trees, bushes and overgrowth.

The Invisible Ones. One mans experience in the Lye Valley. 1997

I was chatting with Nik Hayes who has a wonderful website Quest for the invisible s  Nik had a very strange experience with something he could hear, but could not see in the Lye Valley, that was shadowing him as he walked alone at night, just on Dusk. Here is Nik’s account in his own words.

I was living in the area at the time, down at Wood Farm, and myself and my then partner would often visit the woods at night. We used to go down there all the time, late at night together and we often saw orbs of light moving above the river, as well as through the wooded area, although we never experienced anything as scary as my encounter that evening when I was walking down to Cowley for band practise. It was in 1997 and I am still trying to come to terms with it to this day.

In 1997 I experienced somthing that still puzzles me. I was running a bit late for a band practise at my mates house down in Cowley (Oxford)  The journey involved getting a bus down to the bottom of Cowley Road, then walking quite a distance to his house, (roughly a forty minute journey) I would sometimes walk down to his house through a nature reserve called the Lye Valley, which was a nice walk during the daytime, and I could get to my mates house in about twenty five minutes, and save the bus fare and get in a walk.  There is a Brook running through this area called The Boundary Brook, and also a golf course and another nature area to the East.
