Tunbridge Wells Bigfoot: Londoners come to town to search for mythical monster

Back in November we reported on claims that the British Bigfoot had been spotted in woodland near Tunbridge Wells.

The story of the eight-foot tall Kentish Apeman caught the national media's interest - with stories appearing in The Sun, Daily Mail, Metro and Telegraph - amongst many others!

Now it seems to have sparked the interest of the London Cryptozoology Club, who went on an expedition to Tunbridge Wells earlier this month in search of the beast.

In this blog post by Matt Salusbury, he says how a group of members walked on the Commons trying to find the demonic-eyed monster.

He said: "Our plans, such as they were, mostly involved going to the pub and asking locals if they'd seen anything odd. 

'Sitting around the pub was particularly high on our list of priorities."

Have a read of the blog post (link here), as it's quite good fun!

Interest in Bigfoot has since died down, so Tunbridge Wells People and ThisisKent is asking if anyone has seen it since November? And do you have a picture?

    There was no sighting of any creature, let alone in November. The story originates from WWII and a vague sighting of an 'apeman' near a Common in Tunbridge Wells. I wrote about the non-story and the tabloids caught onto it, and for some reason people are now taking to the woods like idiots in search of something that wasn't rhere in the first place! But that's the media for you...
