The legend of Black Shuck is well-known round East Anglia; for centuries folk have whispered tales of a ghostly hell-hound of immense size that roams the coastline and countryside, visiting graveyards at night. He pads quietly, but his howling is said to make blood run cold, and it’s a very bad omen indeed to cross his path.
"All down the church in midst of fire, the hellish monster flew, and, passing onward to the quire, he many people slew".
The most famous sighting of Black Shuck occurred on 4th August 1577 at St Mary’s church in Bungay where, during a thunderstorm, the beast appeared through the door and ran with unnatural speed through the midst of the congregation, snapping and snarling before wringing the necks of two persons kneeling in prayer, killing them instantly.
Sightings of Black Shuck continue to this day, so if you ever find yourself out on a lonely path in the Suffolk countryside and you hear that howl, shut your eyes tight and keep them closed, for if you set eyes upon the fearful beast with his own fiery eyes like saucers, you can be sure that death is imminent.
