CONTACT January Llyn Peninsular "In January l974 Gwynfor Jones who is an Agricultural Contractor was working in the Llyn Peninsular near Whispering Sands at Garn Fadryn (North Wales). He had to replace some fencing. The grass on this slope was 5/6 inches high, when he got to the top he looked down and could see 4 distinct squares in the grass, forming a square. He went down to examine them, as he knew no one ever went on that hill. They looked as though the grass had been charred away. He called the farmer to look at them and he was equally mystified as no farm tractors or any other implements went on this hill; neither could any people without his knowing. In any case he said, people never thought of going there, it led nowhere and was private property belonging to the farmer." Margaret Fry, Link to the Stars. Wednesday 23rd January L

[Almost] Death on the Canal - 1885, PC Lawrence

I did the basic research for this blog series a couple of years ago. Then, as usual, flitted along to the next thing that caught my interest. Now I'm trying to flesh the cases out and present to you my justification for not being a fan of walking along the canal on dark and lonely nights... For more canal deaths, check out the master post . -- Not everyone who ended up in the canal lost their lives in it.

The Saturday 9th May 1885 edition of the Weekly Mail reported, repeating a piece from the Western Mail on May 6th, that an unnamed man had been rescued from the canal in Cwmbran on the night of Monday 4th May. Having fallen in near the Forge Hammer Inn, the man cried for help and was saved by Police Constable Lawr

UK UFO January 1975 Abereiddy Nick Thomas was with his sister travelling by car one evening along the coastal road on St. Brides Bay. They observed for about 20 minutes a massive fluorescent ball offshore from Abereiddy. The sphere changed form into a perfect rectangle and shot off at incredible speed to the horizon.

BUFORA January Dyfed BUFORA V6/N1 (May / June 1977) reported that Randall Jones-Pugh had interviewed two young men "who on a clear night in January 1975 found some cattle they had gone to collect by tractor, huddled in a tight group at the bottom of the field. They saw a light shining through a hedge, which rose, moved in their direction hovering briefly 30 feet away and 3 feet above ground. Shaped like a rugby ball 18 inches long, it moved slowly away at an angle.&

PRESS Wednesday 17th February 1875 Pwllheli Griffith Thomas Picton-Jones, a solicitor and five time Mayor of Pwllheli, wrote in Field magazine of strange lights he had recently observed: "We witnessed here what we have never seen before certain lights, eight in number, extending over a distance of 8 miles. All seemed to keep their own ground, although moving in a horizontal, perpendicular and zig-zag directions. Sometimes they were of a light blue colour, then like the bright light of a carriage lamp, then almost like an electric light, and going out altogether, in a few minutes (they) would appear again dimly, and come up as before." Llangollen Advertiser, March 5th 1875. Picton-Jones wrote a letter to the Cambrian News detailing his second sighting on Sunday 27th February 1875. Yoke House, Pwllheli, 2nd March, 1875. —
