Welsh UFO Sightings

Welsh UFO sightings from 1949. For sightings from other years please click HERE.

1949, daytime

Witness: Haydn

"In 1949 I was a pupil of Fron Goch Infants School and whilst I was going back to school after playtime I looked back and saw a flying saucer fly down the length of the brook that runs behind the school near where the new police station is now. In those days helicopters were virtually unknown and it was too small (about 6 ft diameter) to be an aircraft and too big to be a bird. The teachers also saw it and stood there for quite some time."

[In 1949 Fron Goch school was Grove Road, now housing Denbigh Museum. There is indeed a stream behind the buildings - SUFON note.]

'Jayne' - who had other experiences in 1934, 1943 and 1954 - and her five year old brother encountered an alien device disguised as an insect that spoke to her and saw a dull silver bell-shaped UFO. Margaret Fry recorded the details in Who Are They?:

"So now, she said, comes the most difficult experience for you to swallow or understand. David was about 5 and she was playing with him on this rough ground at the back. They were not allowed to go round the curve of the bay near the cliffs, but he had wandered off, as she sat down. She then noticed a strange, large insect in the grass.

Here I managed to ask it she had not thought it a mechanical device, for she said it started talking to her in a fairly loud clear voice. It said to go and look over the cliffs, at this she noticed David had wandered and yelled to him to return. He came over and she said, “Would you listen to this insect, it is talking to me.” When he came the insect continued to talk and told them both to go to the cliffs. (The cliffs I had to look at through binoculars, so they were some distance away).

At this her brother ran ahead to the central bowl of the top cliffs, the area drops away several hundred hundred feet to the sea below. He went near the edge to peer at something. She was running towards him, to grab him. When she reached him, she had to forcefully hold him back, it was as though he was compelled to go forward. At this point she saw a dull silver bell-shaped craft about 10/15ft in diameter hovering up and down the cliff face, it would come up to the level of the cliff edge, then go down again. Clutching David’s hand, she dragged him home to her grandmother’s house. This was the last occasion in her childhood/girlhood that she saw a UFO. I asked if David remembered this. She said yes, she certainly knew he did, but he would not talk about it.

boyfriend. I interrupted again and asked what she now thought of the talking insect. “Oh, I know now, it could not have been a insect, it must have been something mechanical, a device which could relay voice messages from the craft. That was the first time I thought it was a craft and not a strange sort of caravan, like the ones I saw in the fields.”"

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
