Boggart, sourer of milk and abductor of children
The 190 acres of Blackley’s woodland park is supposedly haunted by a troublemaking, bearded fella known as the Boggart.
Causing all manner of trouble is the name of the game for this mischievous Manc, from hiding your car keys to turning your milk sour.
Though, the malevolent spirit is also said to have a penchant for abducting children, with Blackley’s Boggart supposedly responsible for the disappearance of a farming family.
No, not a poor man’s ripoff of a Gorillaz album, this urban legend actually involves a demonic canine that stalks the streets of Manchester.
The charmingly-titled Black Shuck is a name that has struck fear into the hearts of Brits across the nation for hundreds of years. The myth of a demonic dog that curses folk and brings bad luck to any who have the misfortune of bumping into it has become the stuff of national folklore.
The old mutt has been sighted in Manchester too, running about with no head, turning over bins and showering the citizenry with unluckiness.
That would explain the rain then.
