Canal Mysteries

As readers of my book Man-Monkey: In Search of the British Bigfoot will know, encounters with hairy man-beasts are curiously prevalent in the vicinity of old, British canal bridges.

How ironic, then, to learn that a couple of encounters with unknown entities in the vicinity of canal bridges occurred in Pelsall, England - the very village I lived in as a kid!

Now, these cases didn't involve hairy man-beasts; but I do find it kind of weird that I should have written so extensively about high-strangeness in the direct vicinity of canal bridges, only to find out that my home village was an apparent beacon for such activity, too!

Here's the links to the two stories, for those who may be interested:

Story One.

Story Two.
