The ‘Warminster Thing’ – 15 miles West of Stonehenge

October 9, 2015

In the mid-1960s a sleepy Wiltshire town became the unlikely epicentre of a UFO phenomenon. Warminster, in West Wiltshire, became known globally for what was enigmatically called “The Thing“. The Thing took many forms by those who claimed to have observed it between 1965 and 1977.The first sign of The Thing was during the Christmas of 1964, when residents heard a loud, unidentifiable whine. The strange sightings were reported in the Warminster Journal. Local journalist Arthur Shuttlewood was instrumental in making the phenomenon national news and in one year more than 1000 sightings of unidentified flying objects were recorded.
