Friday 24th June 2016 

A rather interesting - if brief - experience has recently come to the attention of the W.M.G.C. hailing from the St. Georges area of Telford, in Shropshire.

We were informed that three friends were in the process of walking back from a night fishing excursion - at between 3 and 4 am - when their journey took them past Timbers Island, on Gower Street.  As they reached the island, they all saw what they can only describe as an 'all white male, in a all white suit, riding a all white bicycle' travelling past them...!?!  Our correspondent says the spectacle was 'like something out of an old movie'.... constructed completely of varying shades from white to grey....

As they watched the spectacle, the man proceeded to ride straight past the group, a 'fixed' expression on his face;  looking forward, up towards the hill, directly in front of him.... seemingly oblivious to the startled onlookers!!  Having passed within a couple of feet of the bemused lads, it was clearly noticed that there was no sound at all coming from neither the man nor the bicycle.....!?

Within a second or so, the bemused friends had turned to watch the figure silently riding away from them..... but he had completely vanished from sight!?

For a number of year afterwards, one of the group tried in vain to find word of any other 'strange sightings' from the same area, or perhaps something that could possibly account for the weird encounter....!?  Unfortunately, however, this is where this particular story has to abruptly end - at least for the time being - as nothing more can be unearthed on the subject, either from a paranormal or historical angle!?  Since being informed of the matter, our researchers have taken to pouring over old O.S. maps of St. Georges, but, all that can really be gleaned from such research, is the fact that the entire region was a heavily mined area going back to Victorian times.....

Needless to say, both the W.M.G.C. and our kind correspondent would dearly love to hear of any peculiar experiences or history specifically related to the region concerned!?  If readers of this blog do know something of the area concerned, then please do get in touch with us!!
