Nature, Woodwose and Us. A Connection between Our Worlds.

Drawing you back to the land
Connecting with forest and sea
When consciousness needs to expand
Then you’ll come to a knowing of me

Guardians of mountain and range
Wooded valleys and soft moorland slope
When you find me your life it will change
If you see me then you are our hope

Each tribe now protecting our earth
Every clan taking care of their part
I’m ancient, and you but a child
But together we share the same heart

You are chosen as helper you see
If I cross your path somehow one day
In vision, in signs or in dreams
I have always been, and here I stay.

Another Witness to the Salford Wildman. A sandy coloured Biped seen by Off Road Cyclist

Hi Deb

Hoping you’re well

I believe we share a couple of common denominators.

One is Dominic Campion who is a long time great friend and the other being the extraordinary and fascinating interest in the hairy man, Woodwose, Bigfoot etc.
I’m not one for shooting my mouth off, or to exploit or take advantage of a situation or even abuse artistic licence that no doubt we’ve both and many more have witnessed and seen over the years. But now after approx 6 years I think I’m confident enough to share my experience or should I say experiences without being judged or ridiculed which is the main reason I’ve kept quiet for so long. It was only by chance that I actually opened up to Dominic in the first place. This only came about after Dom had in April 2017 posted trail cam footage of a deer close to his home on Facebook. I left a comment referring to him searching for Sasquatch in that area and the rest is history as they say. To find out that one of my best mates was and is into the whole concept of the existence a large bipedal hominid roaming our earth was a major relief to me. I’ve always believed ever since watching the famous Patterson Gimlin footage way back when. But to actually think of the possibility of ‘some…..thing’ living on our shores is mind blowing and never ever really crossed my mind until my two encounters.

Black Weir Pond Epping Forest 1974. Two Boys Have a Terrifying Experience

 

One of the Witnesses to the British Bigfoot/Wildman has today made a video of his account in Epping Forest in 1974.  NE Wildman Research had an experience back then with a friend when they were fishing in the Blackweir pond area. Known to locals as The Lost Pond or even The Suicide Pond it is an eerie place to be in the daytime, let alone at night with only a pocket knife for protection.

NE Wildman Research: The Lost Ponds is a strange place at the best of times, I have been to that area so many times as a boy with my friends, we would fish late or just play as boys do coming home when we were hungry, there was a weird feeling to this place even in the day but this night it got weirder still.  The lost pond is in the area of Loughton Camp within Epping Forest, one of the old Hill forts from ancient times.

The proper name for the water source was the  Blackweir Pond, but it was known to us locals as the Lost Pond because it is hidden away in the middle of the forest in a hard location to get into and it is not visible to any passers by, there are large trees and bushes all around it, so that’s how it got its name but not its reputation.  Even the pond itself has an eerie feel  It was strange circular-ish pond where we used to fish at night for carp.  I say strange because it had a local and well told reputation at school as the suicide pond,  it always feel dark and solemn when your there to be honest, and its said normal sane individuals would inexplicably be overcome with grief or sadness and throw themselves into the waters and drown themselves for no reason, well that was the local story at least, but we were not deterred from fishing as it was a good little spot, quiet and out of the way. Not many people fished it other than us so it was always a place we would head too, there and “the gravels” were our two favourite spots.

Box Hill Ape Sighting, British Bigfoot or Ape? 2012

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.

Afan Forest Journal of Events, Howls, Dogs scared, Structure and Wood Knocks.

This account came in to me just in the last two weeks, and like most of the emails I received it was from a person who is used to being in one area a lot and they suddenly notice changes that stand out, unsure where to look for advice they look online, luckily this gentleman saw some of the work you guys have put in out in the field and many of the things we are finding we are unsure whether to dismiss them or not, there is a fragile line between what is claimed as Bigfoot structure and what is mis-identification or word of mouth? So in the hopes of helping get some answers I have reached out to as many bushcrafters as I can in the hopes we can weed out what is bushcraft and whittle down some of the things we need to be looking for. Like all accounts this is in the witnesses own words as he typed them.

Hello Deborah

I messaged you as I wanted to ask you a couple of questions about man made, or  woodcraft that I have found when I am out on my daily runs with my dogs, these look odd to me compared to normal bushcraft? I usually take them into the Afan Forest Valley,  I make two runs each day with the dogs, probably five days out of seven we visit this area, so Im used to being in the forest, the sounds and usual finds, but as of late I have noticed some strange things going on and some strange finds, as I mentioned earlier I have found some structures and snaps that I can’t put down to the usual weather or bushcrafters.

As I have three big dogs and they are too strong to take out all at once, I have to rotate the walk. So I spend a good few hours a week in the woods and my house looks over the river and into the forest, which is totally dark at night. You cant see into the treeline when it’s dusk or dark. There have been a couple of times when I’ve been out in this area when we were confronted with the strong smell of sulphur inside the woods, it is a horrible stench that doesn’t seem to be from the ground or any source I could find. This week I have found the most unlikely piece of woodcraft, which is a tree stump, upturned by the wind?  which has a pile of broken branches piled against it to provide a small shelter, not randomly like the weather would do but in they had been stacked to lean against the tree. (see video below for all structures)

British Woman Tells ‘Bigfoot’ Close Encounter. The Salford Wild Man Accounts

Michael Bachman 2016

England — A 48-year-old woman claims she saw a Bigfoot-like creature at a public park with a golf course and a tennis court in the north west of England. Retired cook Deborah Hatswell told Cryptozoology News that she was truanting school in 1982 when she and a friend had the face to face encounter with the beast at around 2 p.m.. “We decided to skip the afternoon lessons and go and hide out in the park till the 3.30 p.m. bell. There is an old mansion house in the North of the park, a golf course and lots of trees and bushes and places to hide,” she said. Mrs Hatswell states they had been playing around the Buile Hill Park area for about two hours when they decided to lay on the ground to take a break. “We were just being silly giggling and playing around, it was warm and sunny and a really nice day.”

Suddenly, she said, she noticed a “slight movement” on the bushes to her right. Thinking it was a teacher about to put an end to their truancy, she became worried. “Or maybe a local lad messing about. In the split seconds it took the bushes to part, I went from being worried to terrified. In my town, there was no talk of bigfoot or monsters, although we do have the famous haunted Ordsall hall, but that’s about as strange as it gets, or so I thought.” The young girl’s worst nightmares reportedly materialized when she caught a glimpse of the “thing” peeking at the pair through the green vegetation. “A huge ape-man type thing leant forward and just looked at me, from about mid-chest I could see him and he was in my mind a monster,” Hatswell recalls.

He just stood there, watching me Aug 2017 Wildman Co. Armagh.

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.

A Bigfoot In Derbyshire, England? A Fire Side Tale by D. L. Soucy 1890’s

One of my favourite channels is the wonderful Fire Side Tales by D. L. Soucy and I was delighted years ago when he added an account of the capture of a wildman in Bakewell Derbyshire. The Video speaks for itself, as do all of his others, the perfect thing to watch on a bad weather day, curled up by the fire.  This account I feel is very important in the history of the UK Wildman accounts, as the Wildman in question was seen by many witnesses and even police officers. I have contacted the police archives for any information available, and I would like to draw your attention to the “hut” that was found by the search party as you can see it is very similar to finds from all across the UK and America.

Here is a transcript of the account:

Hello everybody welcome to another episode of Bigfoot tales and today I head over to Great Britain and we’re going to look at a story that was in a magazine from the late 1890s in the area of Derbyshire England, it’s interesting to note that there are some photographs within the article that show a very interesting structure similar to today’s finds from a publication called Wide World Magazine

In the October of 1904 and written by  Joe Adam and it describes how people who lived in a village in Derbyshire had to deal with a so called wild man of the woods, it was an extraordinary being as they put it who apparently wanted to live in but a primitive way.
