The black Shuck of East Anglia a phantom dog as black as the night which is supposed to roam the country side and coast line.
There has been many reports through the ages of this Phantom and many say it is an omen of death.
On the 4 th of August in 1577 at a Church in Blythburgh it is said that the ghostly dog crashed through the doors of the Church ran up the nave were it killed a man and small child as it ran back out the Church it left scorch marks on the floor of the church which some say can be still seen today.
There have been many accounts not only in East Anglia but all over England and they all differ in some way. Some tell of a ghostly black dog with eyes of fire,Or eyes of benevolent green. Or in some cases just one big eye and is seen floating on a thick mist like a carpet.
Was it this Phantom Dog that gave Sir Arthur Conan Doyle the idea behind the Hound Of The Baskervilles.
If your out on a lonely moor and you see a ghostly figure of a large black dog you better start running so be warned.
