An East-Coast Man-Beast

Neil Arnold delves into the strange - and fascinating - realm of the Norfolk Wildman...

Neil says, in part: "Many years ago when I first began writing for Animals & Men magazine (around issue 5 or 6) I mentioned to Jon Downes something regarding cryptozoological pub signs. There are many St George and the Dragon signs, and I know a few which also mention unicorns. However, one particular pub sign which is of great interest to me is that which belongs to The Wild Man at 29 Bedford Street in Norwich. Now, most pub signs have a meaning but the legend which pertains to The Wild Man is extremely intriguing."

And, indeed, it is! Click on the link above, and you'll see why!
