Also known as "The Woody Boar"

 On this site, I take a look at...
 
The legend of the Bradford Boar.
It has always festinated me with
all the different versions of the story.

We, in fact,  may be looking at one of the world's oldest conspiracy theories.

All you need to know about
 
 "The Legend of Bradfords Wild Boar story"
 
And the Horn Blower story that goes with it.

 
 
 
 
Legend has it that there was a Ferocious Boar that lived in  Cliffe wood on the outskirts of Bradford
 
It frequently drank from a well in the wood.
 
 The Boar Terrorized the populace and caused much damage to land and property.
 
 So much so that  John of Gaunt (Duke of Lancaster) offered a reward for anyone brave enough to slay the boar and bring its head to The Castle  
 
(With this story comes so many claims to be the first hunter)

Hi Phil. 
 
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that I thoroughly enjoyed viewing your website on Bradford. I have recently joined the Bradford Family History Society and I am currently researching my ancestry with the help of the society’s Link Scheme program. Like you, I can also trace my ancestry back over 200 years in Bradford. I live in New York City and my gg grandfather - Jonas Northrop was born in Bradford, on January 27, 1811. Jonas and his wife Ann (Gaunt) Immigrated to the United States around the period 1833/35. He was a weaver by trade, working in the woollen industry. In fact, four of his sons would later go on to work as spinners, weavers and wool sorters in American Mills. I'm not sure if you could offer any assistance on where I may be able to find further information on Wrose, but I would greatly appreciate anything you might be able to shed light on.
 
 
Sincerely,

Louis Northrop

Howdy all I'm john cunningham...aka Bradford boar hunter.was born in 3 seal street Bradford....and emigrated to new Zealand in 1972.and spent most of my life hunting boar in the forest of new zealand.i discoverd the legend in 2004 on a trip home to bradford.it changed my life...i aproched the mayour and in 2005 nov 11 we blew the horn and celebrated the citys history...witch hadnt been done for centuries.i think it would make a fantastic movie from past to present. and by the way the 600 year old horn has jc scratched on it.i welcome any feed back on the subject.and yes i still go boar hunting with dog and spear.
