NEWS REPORTS: Children Spot UFO Behind Schoo

Sounds fanciful? Well it actually happened. In February 1977 in the remote coastal village of Broad Haven.

It was a Friday afternoon when headmaster Ralph Llewellyn realised something was wrong. His pupils had a story to tell. About a silver, cigar shaped craft that they had seen on the ground in the field behind their school.

At first the headmaster dismissed the tale, but when the kids reported wh Read more of this blog post »

The Watchers by Neil  Spring
"When we think of aliens or UFOs, we often find ourselves thinking about those strange and unusual space explorers we hear about in science fiction. Little green men from mars and creatures from beyond our understanding are a popular trope in fiction " Read more of this review »

“lanes. The mill wheel on the horizon turning its daily grind as chimneys breathed tendrils of smoke into the Wiltshire sky and smartly attired gentlemen played cricket on the Barley Field. Nothing now. Not even the distant din of agricultural equipment ploughing the fields. Just silence. Heavy. Oppressive. I glimpsed something then, a quick movement at the very edge of my field of vision. There were enough trees in the churchyard; it might easily have been a branch stirring on the wind . . . I looked to the great elm tree at the far end of the churchyard and saw, in the shadow cast by its overhanging branches, an ornate memorial stone fashioned from smooth white marble in the shape of a lamb. On either side of the lamb were two stone urns. Something told me there was only one family in Imber who could have afforded such a monument. With weather-worn angels looming on all sides of me, I crossed the churchyard to examine the impressive monument, and wasn’t surprised to find I was right. IN LOVING MEMORY OF PIERRE HOWISON HARTWELL APRIL 1925 – OCTOBER 1930”
