How do we answer the question of “there is no history of the British Wildman/Bigfoot”?
A legend exists in various forms that giants were either the original inhabitants, or the founders of the land named Albion. As early as the first century Albion and Caldionia and the islands of the Iernians and the Albiones. which are now Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales were noted in historical text as plagued by giants.
These are the very first paintings of Britains Giants, dont let the costume’s fool you, the clothes are the Artists era, and not historically correct.
It was mid July 1979 that Ron and Betty Harper discovered that something powerful and unknown had torn the bark off their old oak tree; also the local animal population – including squirrels and birds – seemed to have vanished and sightings began to surface of something prowling the area day and night. Their goat was badly frightened by something on a number of occasions.
Growing up in in the UK you get used to tales of the wee folk, the trolls and pixies, the Fae and in Lancashire we have the Boggart, often described as small and hairy and a horrible appearance, blamed for many a missing horse blanket or milk from a step. Here are some of the tales of the wee folk I have come across whist researching our forest friends.
See earlier Post: Days had gone past since our first encounter. We discussed at great length what it could have been. Normally you would have a rational explanation but we just couldn’t explain it. Now come on, just how do you climb up a sheer vertical rock face of 30 ft in 3 seconds or less in the dark? We decided to go back in the dark. Not late this time, and we had something for protection.
My gran, who is sadly no longer with us, used to live on Broomhill estate, Knottingley. About half a mile north of Niners. So it was a good place to meet, Lee and myself got ready at her house. We were going prepared this time.
I had a BSA meteor air rifle on which I had ‘under slung’ a powerful 3d cell torch. Not exactly a 12 gauge but it felt good to have it as we climbed over my grans back garden wall and headed for Niners once again. The night was still and quiet as we walked across the fields.
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.
I received a report over the weekend from a number of witnesses to the same “figure” during a journey back to Manchester from North Yorkshire, luckily one of the ladies on the Journey Kay knows of me and my interest in any unknown creatures or figures here in the UK, so she felt OK speaking with me about it.
The ladies were travelling in two vehicles in convoy. They must of taken a wrong turn on an unfamiliar road and sadly one of the cars needed petrol so they proceeded to search for a garage that could help. After finding a garage they set off again only for the lead car to suffer a blow out!! It seems fate was playing a hand for it was in that moment on a dark country road one of the ladies in the back said “can you see him” as she pointed at a dark running human figure on the hillside, a second lady along on the outing replied “that she could, and that it was a running man”
Weather- Light rain, overcast but with good visibility
Search time, 11.25 to 12.35 hours. Nothing much to report back on today, very much a no show, no sign of anything out or moving around, I think it is still worth making a note of today as in future years I may see a seasonal or monthly pattern emerge, but the M.I.B with the Mercedes Estate was back again. No contact between him or I but his absence was noted and once again just an empty car.
I will continue to visit and note any changes and in the hopes of finding out who this chap is. Any advise on possible ways of doing this would be very welcome, Deborah has my email and can send it over if you would prefer to speak in private.
A Youtuber from Ireland claimed last month to not only having found Bigfoot in a very busy and well used forest in the UK, also that he was attacked and sustained a head injury in the process, as regular visitors will know, I do believe that Bigfoot is in the UK but I doubt the claims being made here. The man who’s youtube channel is Teddyboybigfoot said on the video description “He got me when I was thinking about going close by his property! # sore feckin head” This video has been removed along with a member of comments pointing out his hoaxes by members of the public in his area and fellow Irish researcher who are outraged at this man’s behaviour.
I wanted to contact you Deborah as I have carried this with me for decades and whenever I have tried to share it, im never believed. It happened close to Harvey Hadden stadium, Bilborough Nottingham it’s all been built on now but at the time it was all open fields and a nice place to be.
Well it happened about 24 years ago now, I live in Nottingham and I am a very open minded Person, back then I was going out with a girl and I always walked her home at night going the same way every time, through a path and then we always walked down a long cut through. Same walk every time and we never had any problems, until one night I had walked her home and was returning to my home when it happened. Im not the sort of person who scares easily, but this changed my perspective on things after it happened and I have never been able to forget it.
