Morgawr of Falmouth

Listed under Monster Hunting in West Country, United Kingdom.

Pin It

In 1876, two fishermen were more than a little surprised (as the legend goes) to find to find a twenty-foot sea monster tangled in their nets. It had a scaly body, a muscly, thrashing tail about eight feet long, a long neck and small head ending in a stout beak. After much writhing about, it escaped, and was not publicly known to have been seen again until the 1970s by walkers on the Falmouth cliffs and local fishermen. Some surprisingly convincing photographs were published in a local paper in 1976, and then in 1999, video footage is said to have been obtained. Its creator, a Natural History Museum employee, believed the animal to be a relict plesiosaur, a theory in line with those applied to many mystery-shrouded aquatic monsters.
