FALL 1965, SHEFFIELD, YORKSHIRE, U-K., CHILDREN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A ufology bulletin reportedly told that in Graves Park, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, on Autumn 1965, at 9 p.m., a group of youngsters, age about 8, were playing in a garden overlooking a local cemetery, when they saw a strange sight: it was a figure with no clear shape and no apparent facial features, about 6.5 to 7 feet tall and "glowing" with a strange white pallor.

It moved out of some woodland and lurched forward in a strange stiff gait, and then turned suddenly and walked straight through a tall hedge of prickly growth.

Upon inspecting the hedge, nothing was found that indicated the passage of a material object through it.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Graves Park, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, on Autumn 1965, at 2100, a group of youngsters, age about 8, were playing in a garden overlooking a local cemetery, when they saw a strange sight. It was a figure, but with no clear shape and no apparent facial features. It stood about 6.5 to 7 ft tall and "glowed" with a strange white pallor. It moved out of some woodland and lurched forward in a strange stiff gait, and then turned suddenly and walked straight through a tall hedge of prickly growth. Upon inspecting the hedge nothing was found that indicated the passage of a material object through it.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Nigel Lockwood, Northern UFO News #732.

Points to consider:

Formed in 1973, the Northern UFO Network or NUFON was a loose federation of local UFO groups throughout northern England. At the peak about 20 groups were members. A small newsletter called Northern UFO News was published by the group. Although the federation of groups no longer exists, Northern UFO News was continued by Jenny Randles.

For some ufologists, when children tell an indescribable history of a luminous figure passing through a hedge, the absence of trace of passage in the hedge does lead them to consider that the children might have invented their story or wrongly believed it happened that way, but rather to think that the alleged figure has the capacity to cross hedges without leaving traces.

Regrettably thus, whether the occurrence was investigated or not is not known.
