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.
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.
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.
Charmaine Fraser’s Account: These experiences happened at my Grandparents property out in the Carmyllie Forest area and we spent a lot of our childhood there, at the farm house, it was very heavily wooded back then and there is a quarry and steams, my brother currently lives there. The area has changed in the last 30 yrs but it is still quite remote.
The first incident took place during the day when I was sent out to get the newspapers that got delivered to the neighbours at the bottom of the road. I was with the dog and we were coming down the long path that leads to the track running past the bottom of the property and out on to the farm road. Just before I got onto the track the dog stopped suddenly and started to growl, whine and bare her teeth.
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 Sperrins. 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.
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 email@example.com or Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org
email@example.com one of the leading Cryptozoology blogs today reported a new account of a Bigfoot in Finland. FINLAND — A man in eastern Finland says he saw two hairy Neanderthal-looking humanoids.
Raautavaara resident Iisakki Mieto told Cryptozoology News he was chopping firewood next to his house when he came upon the two beings on Dec. 21, 2017.
“I live in a relatively secluded area, with the nearest neighbour living kilometres away,” the 48-year-old, who claims to hold a PhD in Aerosol Physics obtained at the University of Eastern Finland, said about the encounter. “The weather was dry and cold, well below freezing temperatures, and there was already a layer of snow on the ground.” After firing up the stove in his sauna, says Mieto, he went back inside the house to “have a snack”. “I checked through the window if smoke was still coming from sauna’s chimney and I noticed two vaguely humanoid figures exiting the sauna, leaving the door ajar and walking off into the woods.”
I was lucky enough last month to receive a comment from George Prices Daughter and I instantly wanted to not only pass on my thanks but also share her Fathers Account. For a serving soldier to make a statement that he saw a wild hairy human type creature whilst on exercise is not something we come across very often, it must of made a great deal of impact on Mr Price and I for one am very grateful he came forward and went on the record. It has made it easier for a number of other witnesses from the armed forces to come forward with their accounts also. Salisbury Plain is an old and ancient site set in the downs. Chalk based and almost flat, the area is not well forested but it does have a small pocket of woods and the River Avon runs close by and also the River Wylye
Adam Bird, founder of BRITISH BIGFOOT RESEARCH on Facebook has shared some interesting stuff in the past. This latest photo he came across actually looks like the North American Bigfoot. According to Bird, this photo is known as the ‘Skene Gorilla’, named after Loch Skene, where it was taken. Here is the story, from the ‘Aberdeenshire Press & Journal:
An anonymous photographer snapped this picture which he claims is a Gorilla stalking the shores of Loch Skene in Aberdeenshire. The snapper is quoted as saying: “I do not want to be named in case my sanity is questioned”. He continued: “I was indulging in my favourite pastime of photography. I was returning to my car when I noticed some movement in a clearing of forest. Thinking it was a deer, I got my camera ready. As I looked closer I realised I was staring at what can only described as a large ape.”
The witnesses first instinct was to run: “I believe if I had stayed for longer I could have taken some clearer photos but at the time I was more concerned for my own well being than getting the perfect shot.”He described the animal as “no bigger than the average person but very wide across the shoulders.The only thing I am sure of is that it was some type of ape. From my limited knowledge, I believe the ape I witnessed could come close to resembling a gorilla.”
Until Next Time, Deborah
