The UFO "appeared as a very bright, magnesium-white cylindrical object of about the same size and speed of an aircraft. It was far too bright to be a conventional aircraft. It was pointing at 45 degrees going down and travelling north. It then changed shape and elongated to over twice its original size." The UFO continued its northward descent and then "began stretching until it formed a crescent moon shape--like a C." After that, it disappeared. August 30, 1997

Unfortunately, this place was apparently exorcised in the 1960's and they haven't appeared since. (see "Ghosts and Hauntings" by Dennis Bardens).
Linton: A psychic named Matthew saw a ghost in his house in 1971. The ghost apologized for scaring the witness, and stayed around long enough for the witness to draw a sketch (apparently 'posing' for this). The witness saw him again a year or so later, and 'shook' hands (which the witness didn't feel). Our witness didn't see him many times, but was able to communicate through writing. (The ghost would apparently write through Matthew's hand).

(See "The Vertical Plane" by Ken Webster).
Falmouth: (off the coast): A sea monster name "Morgawr" has been sighted in this area numerous times. It's your "typical" sea monster, long neck, humped body. It's been photographed on occasion, one showing it to be an estimated 15-18 feet long.

Okehamton Castle: A phantom coach is supposedly seen here, on an old road between Tavistock and Okehampton.

Apparently she's destined to ride forever, never attaining eternal rest.

They found these tracks all over the S. Devon coast, not just this one village. In some places, they went over rooftops. They'd go up to something solid and re-appear on the other side of the obstacle (or go over it). February 1855. (see Kerguelen Island, Antarctic).
S. Moulton: The "Beast of Exmoor" apparently roams around this area, with numerous sightings since the 1970's. It's described as a huge, jet-black cat, 8 feet long from nose to tail.

Bridlington: A fishing boat here was haunted or possessed. The radar whacked out frequently, the steering sent the ship in circles. The lights went on and off by themselves and a ghostly figure was seen on deck. An exorcism was done, successfully, and everything now behaves itself. December 1987.

The men reported that "a bright light was approaching the ship." The UFO paced the 60-meter (198-foot) vessel for a few minutes before flying away.

It had long hair that it liked to stroke. October 13, 1811. There was another sighting of a mermaid-like creature in Scotland on this same day.
(North, somewhere): A landholder in the far north of Scotland claimed to have seen a mermaid, sitting on a ledge of rock. Red gold hair, green eyes, very beautiful; he didn't specifically mention her having a fish tail. But he did say it was a mermaid, so I guess we're supposed to assume she had the usual lower torso of one. In 1950, two girls walking in the same area claimed to have seen a mermaid beached by the tide.
Scotland somewhere: A group of children saw what they thought was a drowning woman. The upper half looked like a long haired, pink-cheeked woman, its lower arms and hands were small, like a childs. The bottom half looked like a 'immense, large cuddy fish." The children ran to get witnesses or parents. A farmer got ready to shoot this creature, and was prevented by the others. This creature occasionally made a hissing noise like a goose. This creature was in view for two hours, and then disappeared; although it, or a similar one was seen a couple of other times. Summer, 1814.

A local district sheriff examined the body: "the upper part of the creature was about the size of a well-fed child of 3 or 4 years of age, with an abnormally developed breast. The hair was long, dark and glossy, while the skin was white, soft and tender. The lower part of the body was like a salmon, but without scales." This creature was buried in a graveyard at Nunton. Folklorist R. MacDonald Robertson saw it in 1961.

This castle is haunted by several ghosts; a lady in gray, a former Earl who supposedly played cards with the Devil and lost; and something called the "Glamis Horror." Apparently, you need to be a male member of the Strathmore Family to know exactly what this is. Rumor had it that the heir gets to know what it is on his 21st birthday.
Glenorchy: A London Times report for March 14, 1840 talks about mysterious tracks found in the snow in the Scottish Highlands. They were shaped like horseshoes, similar to the Topham Brailford, England tracks. They also went in a single line, over obstacles without disturbing the snow. (If someone had faked these, how did they do it without messing up the snow around these odd tracks?)

They wouldn't eat the local food, but apparently decided beans were OK. The boy was apparently too weak, or got sick and died, but the girl survived, and her green color faded eventually. She learned Spanish, and said her native country had no sun, and a river separated them from a sunny land. A whirwind picked up her and her brother, and left them in a cave. She only lived for another 5 years, and no one ever figured out where the two had come from. August 1887. (see Woolpit, Suffolk England for an almost identical occurrance).

Then they were grabbed by 4 grey little people about 4' tall, with a 'sickening smell' to them. One man broke free and hung onto a metal highway sign, the other got away and ran back to their car, where he started pounded on the horn. Evidently, this scared the entities away, because they returned to their craft and took off. December 20, 1958.
Hessle: Some coal-like stuff fell from the sky here, January 1, 1860.
Lake Gryttjen: A fresh water lake monster, lives here.
Lake Storsjon: A lake monster has been seen here for 300 or so years.. Since 1987 the Society for Investigating the Great Lake has collected some 400 reports of "Storsjöodjuret," as the Swedes call the monster.There is no clear picture of this creature.

Reports of the creature's size range from 10 to 42 feet in length. One witness said it had a yellow underbelly.
Narken: area: Three witnesses saw a little man 3 three tall or shorter, he was wearing what resembled a grey raincoat and a helmet.

August 19, 1970 (seen "Straken").
Straken: A little man was seen here. The witness went to get a closer look and the creature growled at him. Then a intense white light appeared, and the witness closed his eyes; when he opened them again the creature was gone. February 16, 1971. (see "Narken")

Kenfig: Prince of Wales Pub: Ghostly voices and organ music were heard by the landlord here. Experiments were done (20,000 volts of electricity were run thru a stone wall of the pub, the room was locked, with a tape recorder on.) This captured clock ticking (with no clock in the room), voices in a language that couldn't be understood, and organ music. The theory being that perhaps certain stones have the ability to 'record' sounds that can play back somehow when the circumstances are right. 1982.
Llanddeusant: A woman here loaned a bowl of water and a bowl of coal to a fairy family in the early 1900's. (She got the bowls back, along with 4 shillings).

"The UFO was going in a north-northeasterly direction," one ranger reported. "It was a very bright ball of light with four sparkly tails and about two miles or so high, about three times the size of a large star. It was over the dam for about 35 seconds, climbing in an upward direction." 6:30 a.m. December 19, 1997
Maesiocyn, Residents of Maesiocyn, near Tywlch Llanidloes in central Wales, have reported sighting "lights resembling large stars" in the eastern sky, "which move to the right and left and up and down." Eyewitness Margaret M. said, "Definitely not planes. When looked at through the binoculars, they flash red and green and orange."One night I saw what looked like an orange tennis ball fall in an arc towards Earth and disappear," Margaret said. "I can only reiterate that these are DEFINITELY not planes. Also, regular loud rumbling noises--like thunder or heavy guns--but nowhere near a (an artillery) range." Residents have also reported lights above the nearby Halfren Forest. 1997?

Late 1890's.
