The mystery of an alien spacecraft landing in Wales

Broad Haven (Welsh: Aber Llydan) is a village in the south east corner of St Bride's Bay (Welsh: Bae Sain Ffraid) in the south-west of Wales. It is an area of great beauty with the coast surrounding it forming a part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (Welsh: Parc Cenedlaethol Arfordir Penfro). It draws visitors from far and wide and maybe from even further that we think.

In the 1970s, the area became known for a series of alleged UFO sightings and nicknamed the Broad Haven Triangle. One of these took place on 4 February 1977, when a cigar-shaped craft was seen to land in a field next to Broad Haven Primary School by a group of 14 children playing football. They reported a craft landing and seeing a silver creature. The headmaster separated the children and asked them to write about and draw the craft and was surprised how similar their accounts were. On 17 February 1977, the same craft was claimed to have been seen by some teachers and dinner ladies at the school one of whom saw a creature make its way onto the craft.

There has been considerable press interest in Wales recently having reached the fortieth anniversary of that event. It is a mystery that has endured and even after all this time those children who are now adults have not sought to deny what they saw. It is now known that there were discreet government enquiries into this and other UFO sightings in this area of Wales at that time and they remain unexplained and unidentified.
