Campers' rude awakening!

Karen W from Colwyn Bay (UK) shares a UFO encounter at the scene of ancient Valle Crucis Abbey, Llangollen, itself the site of other mysterious goings-on. In her own words:

I am really into camping and often stay at the site at Llangollen's Valle Crucis Abbey. Back in 1993 I was dared to go into the abbey at midnight having been told stories of headless monks. My boyfriend at the time and I took on the challenge. I was scared, we cuddled up into a sleeping bag, got up to no good forgetting about ghosts - and the unexpected happened.

The whole abbey lit up suddenly like a football arena! All I could see about 60ft above my head where four huge spotlights and red lights in the middle shaped like a cross. The object hovering over my head was of a diamond shape, the size of a jumbo jet.

We were absolutely terrified. I had visions of a door opening and an alien approaching us or even worse, being abducted. They were watching us for approx. 5 mins which felt like eternity.

Luckily, the craft slowly began to move away heading off towards the mountain. Then it sped up to a speed beyond imagination. This craft did not make a sound, it had literally appeared above us out of nowhere.

I used to be an air cadet and was taught to spot military aircraft in daylight and at night. I did not recognise this craft at all. We were not the only witnesses. A group of people were collecting fire wood for thier BBQ. We all know what we saw but nobody could say a word, we were all too shocked. It was so obvious by their faces they had seen it too and vice versa.

I don't know if it was a man-made secret aircraft on a test flight or if it was a UFO!

I have wanted to write about this incident for a long time and didn't know what to do or who to report it to so this is the first time I have written about it. Can anyone add any light to this, were you there? I would love to hear from you!
