It is a pity that the late John Keel is not around to investigate this.
It is an historic and quaint ‘middle England’ town which doesn’t really like creating a scene.
But if the reports of one terrified walker are to be believed, the residents of Royal Tunbridge Wells could have a giant Bigfoot-like creature in their midst.
A man walking in the woods beside the town’s common claims to have spotted an 8ft tall beast with demonic red eyes and long arms.
According to The Sun, the ape-like creature, which looked like America’s legendary Bigfoot, roared at the walker, who immediately ran off in fear.
Over the past six months there have been a number of sightings of a mysterious beast.
Locals in the Kent town have mixed opinions about the claims – with some believing it could be a joker wearing a fancy dress costume.
Sightings in the town go back decades.
The Kentish Apeman was first spotted on the town’s common during World War Two 70 years ago.
A man called ‘Graham S’ told a story of how an elderly couple saw it in 1942.
Writing for the community website Tunbridge Wells People, he said: ‘They were siting on a bench when they became aware of a shuffling noise behind them.
‘Upon turning around they saw a tall, ape-like creature with eyes that were burning red moving slowly towards them. They both fled – terrified.’
