Product Description

Product Description

The eternally mysterious woodlands of Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, England are known throughout the world as an entry point for bizarre and unearthly, paranormal phenomena. From werewolf sightings and spectral encounters, to documented UFO crashes and spooky urban legends, this supernatural portal area experiences more inexplicable activity than you even dare imagine.

In this book, Lee Brickley chronicles his investigation into the very location many researchers call “England's Strangest”. With brand new sighting reports, spine tingling tales of gruesome monsters, and fresh information on the alleged top secret military connection that could be responsible for it all. Are you brave enough to find out what's really going down in the woods today?


"Cannock Chase has long been known as a UFO hotspot and a place where all sorts of other paranormal phenomena have occurred. It's one of the UK's most mysterious locations and might even get into a global Top 10 list of spooky sites, alongside such places as Area 51, Roswell, the Bermuda Triangle and a few others." - Nick Pope, MoD UFO Project, 1991-1994


"A high plateau bordered by the Trent Valley to the north and the West Midlands to the south, the huge and picturesque Cannock Chase has been an integral feature of the Staffordshire landscape for generations. There is something deeply weird about the Chase: it has strange and monstrous inhabitants in its midst. Werewolves, large black cats, aliens, spooks and spirits, Bigfoot, wallabies, wild boar, and huge snakes have all been reported from within the depths of these mysterious woods..." - Nick Redfern, author of many books including Monster Diary and Wildman


"UFOs, werewolves, orbs, more monsters than an old Universal Studio film. Cannock Chase has them all, and now Lee Brickley is bringing them all into your living room in his exciting new book." - Brad Steiger, author of hundreds of best selling paranormal books

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read but has some problems 11 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a Staffordshire native and live near to Cannock Chase so this was an interesting book to me. I know the area can be quite spooky and have heard many tales of paranormal goings on before, this lead me to launch into this book with relish. On the whole it is an interesting read with several good examples of the weird things that go on in the woods around Cannock. Ghosts, UFO's, Cryptids and military anomalies are all provided as well as some history of the bloody history of the area. If you are interested in these things then this book should not disappoint.

There were a couple of things which knocked down the score for me. First of all there are fair few errors of grammar and spelling which jarred me out of my reading revere at times. Not enough to annoy me majorly but enough to be noticed. The second thing is the authors tendency to go off topic to rant about how evil the government is. I understand that paranoia against authority is a staple of paranormal research but he does take it a bit far at times almost to the point of seeming like a parody.

So by all means buy it and read it but just don't be expected to be too blown away by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, very interesting and well written. 1 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having lived in Cannock for a while now, and being surrounded by Cannock chase this was a must read for me. I've always been interested in the paranormal, and to find out that all these creatures and paranormal encounters happened within a fe miles of me certainly gave me something to think about.

For someone who has always lived around Cannock Chase and heard of the many weird and wonderful tales about this area, I have still been surprised and shocked at how little I actually knew! Well I know now and perhaps take a little more caution when I visit the woods today!

Lee has been able to capture the fascinating stories of Cannock Chase and its people (and in some cases half pig half person) in an exciting and mystifying way! The book explains many areas of the unknown and known stories that surround Cannock Chase and has many first hand encounters of the strange goings on in the area.

Cannock chase is a place of beauty but it appears looks can be deceiving! I have learnt much from lee's excellent research and interviews from some of it's residents that certainly won't be forgetting this place any time soon!

If you have a interest in the weird and wonderful and want a great book about a truly remarkable that captures just this, this is your book!

I can't wait for the next exciting edition to Lee's growing book profile!

Kind regards

Em

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read, yet slightly biased 30 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is no doubting the passion the Lee Brickley holds for the paranormal legacy of Cannock Chase.

The book begins with a brief look at some of the weird historic highlights of Cannock Chase and then in the following chapters breaks down the weird happenings in the area into categories such as `Alien encounters', `Wild Beasts', `Legend of the Pig Man', `Ghostly Goings on' and `Top Secret Military Activity'.

However, as soon as I began to read the book any excitement I'd held before turned into slight disappointment because throughout, the quality of the book is often let down by Brickley's biased narrative and irrational leaps of logic.

For example, from the off Brickley states that he believes that the odd things occurring in the area are possibly caused by an inter-dimensional portal and that a series of animal mutilations for which a culprit was never found were possibly the result of Alien visitors - notions that are both irrational conjecture. In another instance Brickley doesn't consider whether it is possible for Werewolves to exist at all, but instead whether it is possible for them to manifest during daylight.

Criticism aside, the accounts in the book are very interesting to read, and the experiences reported are genuinely scary to learn about, and I did feel a bit creeped out by some of the things people reported witnessing. The book is a fun read for anyone who has ever had an interest in the weirder side of Cannock Chase, but it often feels as though Brickley is doing his best to convince you that his beloved Cannock Chase is worthy of your attention. That said, I think it is worthy of our attention. The book has certainly made me want to visit the area and learn more. I hope Brickley will write more in the future, but perhaps work slightly on keeping the narrative a bit more structured.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but flawed 16 Jun 2014
By SPB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for Kindle, and am glad I didn't buy a paper version. As others have commented, this book sorely needed an editor. The grammar and spelling is poor, and I burst out laughing when I read "foe par" for faux pas. The author has a tendency to go off on a paranoid anti-establishment rant, which is quite annoying, at times reading like an angry teen. Having said that, there's some really creepy stuff in here, and I especially liked the phantom hitch-hiker story... The author's grasp of science is shaky, but there's good stuff here amongst all the paranoid ramblings...
