Who Is The Black-Eyed Child Of Cannock Chase?

TO Cannock Chase, where paranormal investigator Lee Brickley is on a case. He’s received an email telling of the ghost of a black-eyed child. Lee says the ghoul was first spotted in Staffordshire in the 1980s.

In 2013, it was sighted again, by a mum and daughter out walking on Cannock Chase. As with previous sightings, the child “has coal-black pits for eye sockets”.

(Is coal-black still a relevant metaphore for the kids to get? How about as black as a jihadi’s flag? As black as balsamic vinegar? As black as Justin Bieber’s alter-ego?)

“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.”

Strange, indeed.
