Local Sightings Introduction

I grew up in Macclesfield during the 1950’s and 60’s. Born in January 1952, mine was a normal happy childhood and my pals and I did all the normal things kids did in those days. Football, cycling, swimming, making dens, exploring nature, train spotting, steam engines, etc. My parents bought me the “EAGLE” comic with Dan Dare stories and some …

Dawn Dale UFO

Dawn Dale UFO

I am deeply grateful to Dawn Dale for coming forward with her report of what she, her mother Ursula, and her friend Chris saw when they were driving home to Macclesfield along the Leek Road after a New Year’s Eve meal at the Boars Leigh Restaurant at Bosley. This report is extremely important as it is further confirmation that there …

Superman of Macclesfield

Here’s a story that was first published in the Macclesfield Times, but here’s a link to a Daily Mirror article on the event which took place in 2014. The idea of a person flying at altitude without obvious equipment sounds ridiculous, but I know of other sightings of such people in the Pewsey Vale area, which of course is where …

Henbury UFO

It was around 1981 when Pauline Hemmings was driving with a friend towards Macclesfield from the Chelford direction. As they were approaching The Blacksmiths Arms at Henbury, there was suddenly a tremendously bright flash of light behind them and the car lost all power. They stopped near the petrol station at Henbury. I’m afraid that I didn’t detail any more …

Chelford UFO

The year was 1974 or 75 and it was 7.15am and daylight. Mrs Poynton, who now lives in Westbury Drive, Macclesfield, was driving to work from Knutsford to Macclesfield. Just before she reached the Egerton Arms at Chelford, she saw a domed topped, disc shaped UFO which had actually landed in a field near the road. It was about 8 …

Bollinbarn UFOs

Mrs Lomas lived in Bollinbarn, Macclesfield, which once again is quite close to the Bollin Valley. There have been so many cases of UFO sightings in this particular area. It was an early November evening in the year 2000 and just going dusk. The weather was cold but dry. While she was sitting reading the newspaper in the lounge of …

Jodrell Bank UFOS

Here is a case investigated by my dear friend and research colleague David Cayton. There are more than a few ironic twists to this tale of events which took place at the famous University of Manchester radio telescope facility near Goosetrey in Cheshire! Firstly during my time as a Quest International UFO investigator for the area at that time, I …
