Box Hill is a summit of the North Downs in Surrey, approximately 19 miles south-west of London. The hill takes its name from the ancient box woodland found on the steepest west-facing chalk slopes overlooking the River Mole. The western part of the hill is owned and managed by the National Trust, whilst the village of Box Hill lies on higher ground to the east. The highest point is Betchworth Clumps at 735 ft. Box Hill lies within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and forms part of the Mole Gap to Reigate Escarpment Site of Special Scientific Interest. The north- and south-facing slopes support an area of chalk downland, noted for its orchids and other rare plant species.
This is a transcript of a conversation taking place between a well known Wild Camper who is very well respected in the community and has camped in some of Northumberlands most remote areas and a Farmer who lives in the North East of england not to far from Harwood Forest and has farmed there Man and Boy as we say in the North. Both Gentleman have a very good knowledge of what is moving around in nature, they are used to the sounds and tricks on the eye that nature can play. Weather can make a mess of many woods, and the guys in the North East are used to this kind of damage, so anything standing out as unusual to them is of course of great interest to me. I am very grateful to Fell Wanderer and the Farmer for allowing me to share this with you guys. I can put you in touch with Fell Wanderer Or Neil Young if you have something similar you would like to report, as they will understand with not only their knowledge of Wild Camping but also as they has taken a number of witness accounts from people already.
I would like to report an experience that happened to me just last month (Aug 2017), I was unsure about coming forward, and to be honest I still am, I was in Brackagh which borders a road and is near human habitation in Co Armagh. I was out as I like to walk and I was exploring an old stomping ground of many years from my youth, I spent a lot of time down here as a lad with my friends or on my own, for hours on end. Back then the area was different, as this is now a nature reserve and is used by dog walkers on a loop walk trail, you can leave the trails and paths if you want too, but I doubt anybody does. There are seven peat rompers ( raised narrow walks) and I had walked three or four of them at least that day already, so id been out for quite some time at this point.
Im pleased to announce that Film Maker and alternative media specialist Christopher Turner will be making weekly Vlogs on all things cryptid and many of the Alternative Genres. All subjects will be covered and it will include many of the UK witness themselves and researchers who will pass on tips and hints to help you get started. If there are subjects you would like discussed please let us know, in the comments below or by visiting Chris’s Youtube channel , you will also find many research videos and the Elusive trailers. Chris will also be hosting a Cryptid Conference in May 2018 with many speakers, for information comment on the video below or contact either myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chris at email@example.com
First of all thank you for allowing me to share my experience. What follows is my true account of what happened to myself and my friend Andy in late August early September of 2011.
I have attached two images one is a map of Bonaly with a RED X marking the camping spot and the other is a picture of the reservoir with a RED x marking the camping spot there.
Witness Account 7/12/2015 : I have been hiking since 2004 mostly alone and all over Ireland. In December 2015 I was in a very remote and isolated area of the Sperrin’s. I had walked to three hill tops surrounded by dense forest and was heading back up a hill towards a tree line to my car when I seen something very tall and large moving faster behind me one km away. It was walking heading down the hill towards me on a route I had just taken. I am not easily spooked but I did not hang about as I am of the opinion if it wanted to, it could have caught up with me easy. I have pondered this for a while now but I have not a clue what it was to this day, as I see people on the hills and mountains at various distances. But this was taller than a 6ft person at the distance I seen it. Eight feet plus is my guess. As I didn’t have a gun only hiking poles I was not about to wait and find out. My hiking bag now has binoculars added.
New in today by the wonderful blog Beasts of Britain, Andy is one of the leading pioneer’s in the subject of the British Bigfoot, and has himself done many hours of outdoor research and is influential in bringing this subject to the fore of the UK’s Fortean thinking, I would like to thank Andy for his time and effort, late nights and wet days, trudging muddy fields and marshy ground, in the pursuit of evidence. And his unbending three thinking attitude, like the explorers of old.
West Midlands, UK.There is a pub in Smethwick, just outside Birmingham, in the West Midlands, England, called the Blue Gate and late one night a gentleman was driving a pony and trap on Rolfe Street, Smethwick, he was riding along thinking of home, when he heard some strange noises coming from behind him.
