Strange Woods

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 15th, 2012

Large black cats, a Bigfoot-like creature, and something strange in the water: they have all been in residence on Britain’s mysterious Cannock Chase, about which I say in my new Mysterious Universe article on this very subject:

“A large, forested plateau that borders the Trent Valley to the north and the West Midlands to the south, the huge and picturesque Cannock Chase has been a consistent feature of the Staffordshire, England landscape for near-countless generations. Following an initial invasion of Britain way back in A.D. 43, Roman military forces headed in a southerly direction to what is now the town of Cannock and along a major and historic Roman road that, today, is called Watling Street. The surrounding countryside was a widespread, tangled mass of forest even in those early times, as can be perfectly demonstrated by the Romans’ name for the area back then: Letocetum, or, in modern and far more atmospheric terminology, the Grey Woods.”

And here’s the link…
