A headless naked man that is sometimes depicted as an animal. He comes from Durham where he scares misbehaved children. The word brag comes from the Welsh Bwg meaning ‘ghost’. Some say that the Picktree Brag was a shape-shifting Goblin that lived in the Picktree woods. In the 19th century Sir Cuthbert Sharp interviewed an old woman who had seen the Brag many times before. Sometimes the Picktree Brag appears as a crying child with bloody eye or as a fox wearing a scarf. Whoever tried to capture it or approach it was carried away at great speed and thrown into a bog or a bush. As the victim tried to get him/herself together, the Picktree Brag would run off laughing.
