Nonetheless, Lee Brickley prefers ‘British Bigfoot’ and he’s been attempting to find it for ten years in the perfect place to search for all issues paranormal within the UK – Cannock Chase in in Staffordshire the place there have been bushy beast sightings for the reason that 1800s. Lee Buckley now has a motive to proceed his ten-year hunt – he lately found a footprint that he believes may solely be made by the British Bigfoot.

Lee Brickley is a magical investigator and creator who is generally in search of ghosts in Cannock Chase – his newest tome is “Ghosts of Cannock Chase: Terrifying stories of paranormal exercise from the UK’s most haunted city” – however he admits within the Every day Star that he’s additionally had a lifelong curiosity within the U.S. Bigfoot. Whereas researching Cannock Chase for his new ghost e-book, Brickley heard of 12 Bigfoot/wild man/man-monkey sightings in simply two years. He says he received actually when an nameless supply despatched him an actual location the place the supply noticed one thing “uncommon” over Gentleshaw Widespread – a 212.5 acre heathland on the southern slope of the Cannock Chase.

“I can’t say for certain what it was, because it was round 7 pm and getting darkish and the determine was coated in shadow. It undoubtedly moved extra like an animal than a person, and it was simply seven ft tall.”
Does Britain have its personal Bigfoot? It actually feels like Lee Brickley thinks so … and now he has a footprint and a claw mark to again up his perception. There have been sufficient humanoid/bushy creature sightings throughout the UK to help the concept of a British Bigfoot, though just like the American Sasquatch, laborious proof and clear pictures or movies are to not be discovered.
