The Mermaids of the Peak District. And Upright Black Hairy Beasts

I know you guys are used to me bringing you stories and experiences that some would say are completely bonkers but for me can become a little run of the mill so to speak and these days im seldom shocked by the stories and experiences that ordinary people like you or I have experienced, but even I was surprised to come across a very strange tale while looking to see what else is happening in the areas that I receive reports of British Bigfoots and Canine type creatures. Believe me or not, but our central and beautiful land-locked and windswept Peak District is said to be home to not one, but two mermaids!

The first water nymph is rumoured to live in the appropriately named Mermaid’s Pool, situated just below Kinder Scout in the High Peaks. This site was thought to be popular for ancient water rituals for two reasons; firstly, the water is salty, which is very strange for an inland lake with no access to coast or tide. Secondly the nearby waterfall of Kinder Downfall often appears to have the mythical quality of water flowing upwards on a blustery day. Many a hiker have been taken aback to see what appears to be a waterfall flowing backwards and defying gravity.

The waters of the Mermaid’s Pool are believed to offer healing qualities to those brave enough to bathe within them.  For those looking for eternal life, the best time to visit is at midnight at Easter, which is the only time of the year when the Mermaid is said to appear. If she looks upon you fondly then she will grant you the gift of immortality. Make sure you catch her on a good day though, otherwise you can expect to be pulled into the pool to your death!

Upright Canine in Finland

Phantom and Monsters  is a popular blog both here in the UK and Worldwide.  A recent article on the sighting of a “doglike” creature was reported in Finland, as more and more European Accounts come along it seems these strange Canine Creatures are being reported worldwide.

I recently came across the following account:

So about 2 years ago, I had an encounter with something I can’t explain and the reason I’m writing this is because I saw some strange footprints yesterday where I encountered it 2 years ago. (I live in Finland, near the coast)

Two years ago, I was out hunting and it was getting late and dark so I decided to head back home. I had about 2-3 km walk through the forest to get to my car. It had gotten pitch black outside at this point so I had an LED headlamp for light as I walked.

As I walked I kept hearing unusually loud sounds. I knew something big was moving. I was 100% sure it was a moose as I’ve encountered lots of them in the forest and they do make lots of noise/vibrations when they walk.

I couldn’t see anything though and it was getting closer to me. All of a sudden this super awful smell hits me, it smells like feces and something really rotten. My hair stands up and I raise my shotgun, as my whole body instinctively tells me to run.

I just stand still and listen. As the sounds get closer I see what looks like a humanoid figure standing on two feet, really tall, it had to be easily over 2 meters, but slender and muscular at the same time and kind of crouched down posture. It looked almost like a werewolf from movies, but at the same time not. It was quite far away, so my light barely went so far, but I could see it. Its eyes shined red from my LED headlamp as well.

It looked at me for about 3 seconds, made no sounds, it was breathing weirdly. (I think it could smell the two ducks I had in my backpack) It slowly walked away. I even filmed a bit as it started walking with my phone, but it’s poor quality as my phone at the time was old (Samsung S2) and it was dark, so you can’t really see it, just hear lots of noise.

Anyway, I told some friends and fellow hunters. A couple have heard or seen strange things as well, but nothing like this. Bos

The Never Ending Strangeness on Cannock Chase. Hell Hounds, Bigfoot, and Giant Snakes

The Ludlow Blog reports :

Cannock Chase is an area of woodland and heath land which has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is located between Stafford and Cannock and covers an area of about 26 square miles. Years ago it became familiar to many people when a series of murders took place here, three girls were murdered and buried on the Chase. Raymond Leslie Morris, a motor engineer from Walsall, was found guilty at Stafford assizes of one of the murders in 1968 and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He is still in prison over 40 years later as one of the country’s longest serving prisoners. However moving further forward in time a series of strange events seem to have been centred around this location known as Cannock Chase, what follows are extracts from newspapers which have reported on these strange events.

Below are a series of articles that have appeared in the Cannock Chase Post and Birmingham Post.

Panther alert on new sightings 1 September 2005

Sightings of a snarling, black panther sparked a police search this week as terrified residents steered clear of Cannock Chase.

Tuesday saw the latest in a long history of panther sightings on the ancient woodland.

Eyewitnesses have told us of a large, muscular, black cat, roughly three feet long, prowling through the woodlands near Cannock Chase Enterprise Centre.

Terrified witnesses fled as the beast came within metres of them, seeming to appear from nowhere.

SIGHTINGS/EXPERIENCES MAP. Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Dogman, Werewolf and Other Strange Creature Map.

Over 25 new Global Bigfoot Reports have been added to the map. From Swedish Apemen, To Spanish Wildmen, there are far more European Accounts that even I realised. I have added the source to each account and added any images taken by the witnesses and links to evidence finds. New accounts added daily. From Sasquatches of North America to the Yowies from OZ. Find all your Bigfoot information on one handy map.  If you would like to share your experience or sighting account here please message me at debbiehatswell@gmail.com.

I will be adding old and new reports and sightings from every country and continent. When I originally started this map back in 2003 I only added UK accounts. As the years have gone by and the lack of reporting facilities available I have been lucky enough to speak to witnesses and collect their accounts and experiences from all over the world, in the coming weeks I will also be adding these to the map as they come in. The map will continue to update as new accounts come in.  [wpedon id=”2944″]

River Severn is home to more than just one “creature”! Man sees strange creature running low to the ground.

My name is Simon Austin from Coleford near Gloucester, I have lived here all my life . I never knew where to report my encounter until a friend of mine told me about mark Farnell a friend of his who follows sightings of unexplainable creatures like Bigfoot. I work in Staunton, one morning I woke at 05.00am and got myself ready for work.

As I was driving down scowles road heading for the A4136 highway, keeping in mind there was very little to no traffic I approached a left turn junction, near stowfield quarry at that point my car was hit by a small log or branch. In shock I looked to my right from where the sound emitted from and what I saw was frightening to say the least. I witnessed a creature sprinting towards me on all fours; at least that’s what I thought until it came closer. It was running on two legs but low to the floor. It resembled a dog but had a long snout but was much taller and was very thin. I accelerated off as fast as I could. The creature was black in colour and had frosted eyes. I have never seen anything like this before and hope I don’t see it again. I hope this helps in anyway.

HAUNTED WIRRAL: The strange case of the werewolf cabby

Haunted Wirral reports,

On Wednesday evening of 16 April 2003, two students – Misha Egerton and Bryony Claremont, both aged 20, got on their bikes and cycled almost 2 miles from their flat on Beckwith Street, Birkenhead. They were travelling to a house on Wexford Road, Prenton, where their student boyfriends, Elliott and Jake lived. Tonight the girls, their boyfriends and ten other students were having a party and the guests were expected to bring their own bottles of wine and six packs of lager and beer.

The Devon Wolf 1996, And What happens at Wistman’s Wood 2014

“I live in a small town in Devon (UK) just south of Dartmoor and there have been many sightings of what appear to be werewolves in the fields near here and up onto the moors themselves. The most known sighting was in 1996 and was by Emily Watton. She was walking here two dogs; a collie and a labrador/springer spaniel cross, on the moors in early October when the dogs started going crazy. Then both, at the same instant, turned around and started trying to run in the opposite direction Emily was headed. Emily kept hold of the leads and while trying to turn the dogs around, she saw a huge creature “about 7 or 8 feet tall” running towards her. It was “wolf-like but the forelegs were much longer and the chest much deeper. It was covered in fine black, grey and brown fur and hair brilliantly yellow eyes.” The snout was longer than either of her dogs’ and she could see fangs when the creature opened its mouth. She started to run but the creature was, in her estimation, at least 4 times as fast as she was. When the creature got about 20 feet from her, the dogs suddenly turned and started barking at it. Emily kept running but as she looked over her shoulder, she saw the creature stand up on its hind legs, grab the two dogs, then throw the collie into a rock and rip out her labrador/spaniel’s throat”

When she got back to town and told her husband what had happened she was taken to hospital. I’m not sure what happened to her after that but what i was told is that she died of shock that night………

Is Bigfoot in Britain? Mysterious figure lurking in Lincolnshire woods is claimed to be mystery beast

Friskney Footprint and Dark Figure

Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, who captured the image, did not see the image whilst out on the research day, it was viewed by a group member who claims it could be the most convincing evidence yet that Britain is home to the mythical beast.  Could these startling pictures be evidence that Bigfoot is lurking in the British countryside? The eerie image appears to show a large shadowy figure looming menacingly behind a tree in a Lincolnshire woods.

Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, 31, captured the picture while out walking in Friskney nature reserve and said he was stunned to spot the shadowy figure staring back at him from the photo after it was pointed out to him. After hearing of previous Bigfoot sightings at the nature reserve, Adam, from Nottingham, ventured into the woodland in search of clues. He followed some strange noises and suspiciously large footprints in the woods before capturing what he believes is the mysterious beast on camera.

Adam, co-founder of the British Bigfoot Research organisation, believes the shadowy figure could be the most convincing evidence that it’s living in Britain yet.   He said: “My investigators and I were tipped off that this small patch of woodland in Friskney could be a hotspot for Bigfoot beasts. “There is at least one reported sighting here, so we decided to check it out. “We stayed there for a few hours that day and felt watched and followed the whole time. “It looks like a shadowy figure stood within the trees staring at us from afar.
