Spooky Suffolk

It was a warm, lazy day's exploration that found us at the gates of the disused Woodbridge Airfield in Suffolk. Deep in the close embrace of Rendlesham Forest we stood outside the wire fence reading all about the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident of December 1980. Silence but for the soft wind in the trees and the eerie emptiness of the airfield, we learned that a patrol from the airbase had spotted strange lights in the forest and had gone to investigate. They found unexplained depressions in the ground and all the signs were there that something had landed. It was positive enough to find its way into the station logs and positive enough to enter UFO Lore as the "UK Roswell" event.

Both the aliens, if they were there, and the airbase were not in sight, so we moved around to the other side of the airfield to where St John The Baptist or Wantisden Church lies isolated in fields. There has never been a Wantisden Village, just the surrounding farms, and at one time the church itself was on MOD land and a military escort was provided for anyone who wanted to visit it. But now it lies outside the airfield fencing and alone in the fields. Then came the spooky bit. The church had only ourselves for company and the airfield was empty with only the tumbleweed to show any life existed, but then why could we hear the deep, underground throb of a diesel generator?

Who knows what was going on out of sight, and we never will because we decided to exit.....stage right.....
