It was a bright Friday morning in November, I was catching a train from Exeter to Bristol at approximately 11:30 AM. The rush hour had gone at this point and there was probably only 30 to 40 people on the platform when the train rolled in.
The train journey was smooth the sky was bright & sun was shining down, soon we had branched away from the motorway and were between the hills and fields and the forest line.
In my carriage way probably 10 to 12 people most of them with their head in either mobile phones or morning newspapers. I haven’t been on a train for years so I was keen to take in the scenery. About 10 miles from Bristol we were travelling through an area and in the fields to my right I saw something large in the middle of the field walking, it was walking kind of hunched over, and all I could tell you was it was a black figure.
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.
I don’t know why I haven’t mentioned this before but I’d like to give an account of a possible encounter I had back in 2007. It was the beginning of April and I had been visiting Somerset and Cornwall with a friend. On the night of my encounter, we were in St Austell, staying at a B&B right on the beach.
I was in contact today with a lovely lady who I shall refer to as Isabella, before I continue I would like to keep Isabella’s identity and area a secret, as the account unfolds you will no doubt understand why.
The witness herself was happy to be named, but we both decided in the interest of our Forest Friends Anonymity was probably the best route to take. I can’t thank Isabella enough for allowing me to share this moving and inspiring account with you all.
This account was kindly passed to me by Chris J. Huff writer and researcher of all thing strange who came across the story when researching accounts for his work into the paranormal accounts across the UK.
Witness Statement: I almost fell out of my chair when I read your intriguing story and the account of the “hard stand” monster at RAF Alconbury. Just tonight, my father shared with me his stories about this base and it prompted me to do the internet search that brought me to your message. I think you’ll find my father’s experiences at this air force base in the early 1970s very interesting.
He was the NCOIC of a group of 3 men and their dogs, charged with guarding bunkers within a large, fenced area. I believe that nuclear warheads were stored beneath many of these bunkers. One foggy night my father got a radio call that there was an intruder within the perimeter and shots were fired.
BRISTOL, United Kingdom — A Bristol resident says he witnessed an ape-like creature as it ate a piece of food with what he believes were improvised eating utensils. 58-year-old Harry, a retired man in Somerset County, who provided a last name but chose to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News, that he was walking through the Leigh Woods Nature Reserve on August 17 when the following event took place. “I usually take my dog, but lately I have avoided taking her there because she has been getting very skittish for some unknown reason,” said Harry. According to the man, he suddenly began hearing noises as if someone was “snapping twigs” and “making squeaky sounds”. “I thought it may have been a deer, so I went off the path to look,” he recalls. “This is when I saw this strange ape creature. It was sitting in the brambles, digging in the earth with a twig.” Reportedly, the alleged animal did this for about 5 minutes, then picked something up and began eating it. Harry believes this was a piece of raw meat.
I would like some advice on an incident that happened earlier in the summer to me and my wife. I wanted to show you some of the photographs I took whilst we were there – I would really like to hear people’s opinions on what, if anything, they can see in them. It did not feel like we were alone that day and that’s why I took the photos. It was around 9.15 in the evening, it was a lovely summers night and I’m not a hundred percent sure, but I think it was late July, early August. We are lucky in that we have quite a lot of small woodlands in the area if you google Southrey, Lincolnshire you will see. My wife and I had been for a walk with the dog and we had parked the car just of road that heads to Bardney.
Update of an earlier report, and area check by D. Howe
I don’t have too many details for this account, and although it is quite short, the description in my opinion sounds undoubtedly like a British Bigfoot Account: The witness and her husband were visiting the Forest of Bowland, an area popular with walkers and ramblers alike.
The witness stated: I was on a rambling holiday with my husband and we wanted to walk the Dunsop Bridge Tramper Trail. It was a nice day, and ideal for walking.
I grew up in the countryside near Essex, UK. Back then we lived in a very rural area surrounded by thick woods and fields. There were rivers and streams and fields. There was a small farm down a single track road. My first encounter of this thing that I can only describe as a beast was in our garden at about 11.30pm when I was about 13/14.
