West Lothian Council Create ‘UFO Trail’ at Site of Famous Close Encounter

September 30, 2018                   (scotsman.com)

• In November 1979, Bob Taylor was left injured and traumatized after encountering a UFO in the Dechmont Woods outside of Livingston, West Lothian, Scotland (just west of Edinburgh). Now the encounter will be officially recognized by the West Lothian Council with a “UFO trail” in those woods, with marker posts and a display board in the woods to point the way for visitors to see the spot where the incident occurred.

• On that day in 1979, Taylor, a forestry worker, was walking through the forest with his dog when he came across a large dome shaped craft hovering in a clearing. Suddenly, two smaller spheres with spikes protruding from them came out and grabbed his legs, dragging him towards the craft. Taylor recalls smelling an acrid odor and a hissing sound before passing out and woke up twenty minutes later, dragging himself back to his truck which mysteriously wouldn’t start.

• Taylor managed to walk a mile back to his house. His trousers were ripped and he had grazes on his chin and thighs. Upon seeing his disheveled state, his wife called police and a doctor came out to check him over. Forensic tests on Taylor’s clothes showed it was likely they had been ripped by a sharp upward pull, such as a mechanical device. Police initially treated the incident as an assault, but after visiting the scene they discovered two “ladder” indentations on the ground and forty small circular holes that followed the path of the mine-like objects.

• Tom Conn, Executive Councillor for the Environment, said, “The Dechmont Woods encounter is Scotland’s most famous alleged UFO incident, and has featured in a number of books and TV programmes.” Dechmont Woods is the only officially recognized UFO site in Scotland, and the only UFO incident in the UK that resulted in a criminal investigation. It made headlines around the world.

• Mr Taylor, who was well respected in the local community, never deviated from his story right up until his death in 2007 aged 88.

 

The scene of a close encounter with a UFO is set to attract visitors from across the world after being officially recognised by a council.

West Lothian Council has created a “UFO trail” in woods where a forestry worker claimed he was attacked by a craft from outer space almost 40 years ago.

It remains the only such incident in the UK to have led to a criminal investigation and made headlines around the world.

Bob Taylor said he was left injured and traumatised after the close encounter in Dechmont Law Woods in Livingston in November 1979.

He claimed he was walking through the forest with his dog when he came across a large dome shaped craft hovering in a clearing. He said two smaller spheres with spikes protruding from them came out and grabbed his legs before dragging him towards the larger object.

He recalled smelling an acrid smell and a hissing sound before passing out and woke up 20 minutes later, dragging himself back to his truck which mysteriously wouldn’t start. He managed to walk a mile back to his house. On seeing his dishevelled state, his wife called police and a doctor came out to check him over. His trousers were ripped and he had grazes on his chin and thighs. Police initially treated the incident as an assault but after visiting the scene, they discovered two “ladder” indentations on the ground and 40 small circular holes that followed the path of the mine-like objects.

Forensic tests on his clothes showed it was likely they had been ripped by a sharp upward pull, such as a mechanical device.

Various theories have been put forward to explain the bizarre encounter, from an epileptic seizure to the planet Venus.
