At WikiProject Cornwall we subscribe to the policies laid down by Wikipedia - particularly civility and consensus building. We are aware that the wording on Cornish entries can sometimes be a contentious topic, especially those concerning geography. You don't have to agree with everything but there is no excuse for rudeness and these things are best solved through consensus building and compromise. For more information see WP:CornwallGuideline.
These pages are not platforms for political discussion. Issues relating to Cornish politics should be restricted to those pages that directly deal with these issues (such as Constitutional status of Cornwall, Cornish nationalism, etc) and should not overflow into other articles.
Most of all have fun editing - that's the reason we all do this, right?!

Whilst this is an old legend, the noise is in fact genuine. I have personally heard it during night time whilst traversing the river bed. It scared me so much that I nearly ended up in the water. However, I cannot confirm what exactly the noise is, but it is likely to be either a crake or a fox. It's unlikely to be a monster as they're usually to be found in Newquay, not Crantock.
