1955, GOODHURST, KENT, U-K., SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A 1986 book about mysterious animals in the United Kingdom and Ireland reported that in Goodhurst, Kent, England, in 1955, at 03:30 a.m., a girl or a woman, whose age is not indicated, had stayed to sleep in a room of the village school.

She was sleeping alone when she suddenly awoke feeling a terrible cold and then saw a strange figure crouching at the left of the bed. It was small, with large staring eyes, and seemed surrounded of a soft gleam. It looked at her with an obscene, staring and malevolent glance.

Thereafter, the room became warmer again and the creature disappeared.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Goodhurst, Kent, England, in 1955, at 03:30 a.m., the witness was staying at the local village school and was sleeping in one of the rooms by herself. She suddenly awoke feeling a terrible coldness in the room. She then saw a strange figure crouching to the left of her bed. It was small and had two large staring eyes and appeared to be encased in a soft glow. It stared at the witness with an obscene and malevolent gaze. Eventually the room became warmer and the creature disappeared.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Graham J. MacEwan, Mystery Animals of Britain and Ireland.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in 1955, Goodhurst, Kent, England, UK at 03:30, the witness was staying at the local village school and was sleeping in one of the rooms by herself. She suddenly awoke feeling a terrible coldness in the room. She then saw a strange figure crouching to the left of her bed. It was small and had two large staring eyes and appeared to be encased in a soft glow. It stared at the witness with an obscene and malevolent gaze. Eventually the room became warmer and the creature disappeared.

The website indicates that the Hynek rating for the case is CE3: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Entity reports).

The source is indicated as a link to a nonexistent web page.

Points to consider:

The story has nothing to do with UFO related entities. There is no UFO, and nothing to suggest a relation between the poorly described creature and UFO occupants.

The experience is during the sleep. Although the information is insufficient, this is obviously one of the numerous hypnagogic hallucination experiences changed into a "humanoid encounter" for no valid reason.

I provide a few references among dozens about the topic of hypnagogic hallucination and sleep paralysis:
