Stories of a Bigfoot-like creature in and around the Cannock Chase area have endured for centuries.
Situated in rural Staffordshire, England, Cannock Chase has gained something of a reputation for being home to all manner of weird and wonderful things, with visitors reporting everything from UFOs and paranormal phenomena to sightings of strange creatures wandering through the trees.
Among them - tales of a Bigfoot-like beast that date back as far as the 19th-Century.
One local investigator - Lee Brickley - has made it his mission to get to the bottom of the mystery and now he believes he has found conclusive evidence of a large bipedal creature in the area.
"Loads of people now message me regularly asking for updates," he told The Daily Star
"I got an anonymous email from a man saying he had been flying a remote control plane over Gentleshaw Common at Cannock Chase who said he'd seen something unusual."
"With his description of the location, I went out there straight away and found the footprint."
"I was astounded... I'd never seen a footprint that large in my life, and it was clearly not made using a mould or cast... I realized the Cannock Chase Bigfoot was more than just a myth."
During his investigations, Brickley has also found what he described as 'claw marks' on a tree near to a dead deer that he says had been killed by some sort of carnivorous animal.
He has even seen what he thinks was the creature itself on at least one occasion.
"It definitely moved more like an animal than a man, and it was easily seven feet tall," he said. "I tried to run after it, but it was too quick and disappeared into a dense section of trees."
As things stand, however, no definitive proof of such a creature has ever been found.
