Although the UFO activity seen at Ripperston Farmhouse happened some time ago (1977), it is probably one of the most important events seen in Britain, and whilst it is not as famous as the Roswell incident many years earlier, it certainly warrants a great deal more attention.
My brother, Nigel Brockwell, has had an interest in UFO's and the Paranormal for many years and was taking a holiday in Wales when he read about Ripperston Farmhouse. He had decided on a more scenic route for his return journey and this took him close to the farm.
Not knowing what response he would receive, he decided to call in at the farm for a chat with the occupants.
He was greeted by Mrs. Pauline Coomb who invited him in, and she introduced him to her husband, Billy. What struck Nigel the most was the couple's apparent honesty about the information they were giving, and their lack of interest in profiting from the story (quite a rare thing nowadays).
It should be pointed out that the UFO activity around the farm was not a one-off event, but a series of experiences that occurred between mid January and mid December 1977.
Although the Ripperston farm is situated in a rather isolated area of South Wales, there were (are) a number of high security (perhaps top secret) military bases close by. According to the records, UFO's were reported over these bases and the military were involved in some "unusual" activities and searches.
The Ripperston Farmhouse story began on the 14th of January 1977, when Pauline Coomb saw a "great ball of incandescent light, hanging motionless over the field near the cliff top". It was not unusual to see strange lights in the sky (because of the military activity), but this was different.
After approximately twenty minutes the light started to move, swinging from side to side (much like a pendulum), as it got nearer to the ground and disappearing below the cliff.
Pauline woke up her husband (who was sleeping in a chair at the time) and he went to the cliff top path to search for whatever the object was. Unfortunately, he found nothing.
The following day newspapers were carrying the story of UFO sightings. Although Billy didn't really believe that his wife's "light" was a "flying saucer", he did admit that there were some strange things going on. He was quoted as saying "There were as many as fifty frogmen below the cliff. Unmarked army trucks, soldiers in camouflage. The Navy was there too...building some sort of path beneath the water. This doesn't make sense!"
