Cannock Chase black eyed child encounter

A long-running mystery that is said to haunt the hills of South Staffordshire is the notorious 'black-eyed child' of Cannock Chase.

Rumours of the spectre led to worldwide interest in the site in the early 1980s, and reports of walkers hearing screams and seeing a woman running across the hills have begun to resurface.

In the latest sighting, reported to Staffordshire based paranormal investigator Lee Brickley, a shocked woman heard what sounded like screams, before coming across the wandering, sightless spectre while walking Birches Valley.

“We instantly started running towards the noise,” she said. “We couldn’t find the child anywhere and so stopped to catch our breath.

“That’s when I turned round and saw a girl stood behind me, no more than 10 years old, with her hands over her eyes.

“It was as if she was waiting for a birthday cake.

“I asked if she was OK and if she had been the one screaming. She put her arms down by her side and opened her eyes.

“That’s when I saw they were completely black, no iris, no white, nothing.

“I jumped back and grabbed my daughter. When I looked again, the child was gone. It was so strange.”

According to Brickley, this latest sighting resembles earlier accounts from the 1980's.
