In December 1980 several sightings of a UFO were reported in Rendlesham Forest...
Many people think these mysterious events are the most significant UFO incident to have occured in the UK. There is no tangible evidence on the ground, but following the trail with the help of our leaflet and your imagination, an intriguing picture can be painted.
To help your children round the UFO Trail, why not look for the strange symbols on the posts and decode the message with help from our Alien Trail Leaflet, available from the Forest Office.

My partner took me to Rendlesham Forest as a surprise treat for my birthday last year. We did the UFO trail and loved it. Such fun and the forestry commission are great sports for creating this. Amazing to behold a metal sculpture in the clearing where the unknown craft supposedly landed in 1980. A fantastic story and a great interpretation. Even without the drama of this mystery, the forest is exceptionally beautiful and we will certainly return one day.

Whats the meaning of those weird symbols in the left side of the UFO? Penniston touched? And get binary code?
Please can you e-mail me more details. My partner turns 40 years old next year and he is obsessed with the Rendlesham UFO case. I would like to somehow book up a UFO trail walk? Can you send me info on how to go about this please? What accommodation is available nearest the forest? Please help as this would blow his mind and I don't know how to go about it?
