The Derry Fairy of Berry Road, Derry

High Weirdness, Mythologies, Thin Places


DECEMBER 15, 1956

A man named Alfred Horne was cutting down a Christmas tree near his home on Berry Road when he saw a small man – if it could be described as a man – staring silently at him from the edge of the woods. It was roughly two feet tall, had elephant-like skin and floppy ears, visible nostrils but no nose, and stumpy extremities with no apparent fingers or toes.

He did attempt to capture the odd fairy creature, upon realizing no one would believe him if he just told them about it. Upon lunging at the elf, it emitted a shriek that scared the man so badly he beat a hasty retreat.
