Quantock hills howls

There are many stories and have been many sightings over many years of mysterious beasts, big panther-like cats and monster black dogs,wildmen living in and around the south west of England. These strange creatures are even now supposed to inhabit the wilder moorland areas of the counties of SomersetDevon and Cornwall - savagely gored pet cats and dogs, sheep and other farm animals, and strange howls in the middle of the night have all been reported in the last ten or so years on the Quantock Hills, Exmoor, Dartmoor, and Bodmin Moor.

These strange creatures are even now supposed to inhabit the wilder moorland areas of the counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall - savagely gored pet cats and dogs, sheep and other farm animals, and strange howls in the middle of the night have all been reported in the last decade or so years on the Quantock Hills, Exmoor, Dartmoor, and Bodmin Moor.

The creature carving above appears on a bench end in Crowcombe church. It’s not clear what they are, although the one on the right looks a bit like a bat. There are other strange, mythical creatures, like the green man, to be found inside and outside Quantock churches. Maybe they were imagined by the people who carved them.
