A Close Encounter Of The Heard Kind

During all hours of the day and night it goes 'bing bong bing
bong', and has left South Marston residents scratching their

Even the parish council has asked people if they know anything
about a mysterious UFO.

Because villagers have been hearing a strange, other-worldly

From his home in Old Vicarage Lane, Allen Williams watches
intently with a pair of binoculars, but it is only the sound he
can hear on a daily basis.

"I hear it all the time, it sounds like something out of Close
Encounters Of The Third Kind," he said.

"It's been going on for a few weeks and I haven't been able to
spot anything that gives a clue as to what it is." advertisement

As the nephew of the famous Hammerman poet Alfred Williams, who
worked at the Great Western Railway, Allen might be forgiven for
having a vivid imagination.

But the 71-year-old lives with his wife Mary and son Ian, 41,
who have all heard the same thing.

Allen said: "It is over to the west of us and neighbours have
mentioned it too.

"It happens for a few minutes at regular intervals and has even
started at 1am.

"It appears to be coming from the old Vickers airfield, which

"If you were close to the noise it would be quite loud and I
suspect it's coming from a point about one mile from my house."

There are apparently two sets of tones, one rising in frequency

Mr Williams said: "It is very hard to describe but it's

"However, I do not see any coloured lights appearing at the same

The mystery is not only perplexing Allen.

Parish council clerk Roger Powell has posted an appeal for
information on the village website, www.southmarston.co.uk He
said: "In the last five weeks or so a new noise nuisance has
arrived in the village.

"This can best be described as a noise used in public address
systems in advance of an announcement being made. There is no
definite pattern as to when it occurs. It can be day or night
with gaps of many hours or only a few minutes between

"The parish council would like to know the source of the noise
so that action can be taken to deal with it. Can you solve the
mystery or provide any clues as to the likely source?"

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Roger on 01793
827515 or by emailing clerksmpc.nul
