In 2014 Wales was struck by severe storms that revealed a fascinating fossilised record of a forest that was thousands of years old. The find was remarkable with thousands of perfectly preserved stumps emerging from the sea along with walkways that had been built by ancient Britons and slowly consumed by the sea around 4000 years ago.
Similarly, last year some Welsh beaches were inundated with thousands of octopuses that left reporters, locals and scientists scratching their head out of confusion. It was only a few months ago that the Beast of Burry Port washed up on the local beach. The strange beast was a long object covered in barnacles and still hasn’t had its identity confirmed by experts or otherwise.
And now, Burry Port has added to its infamy when a bizarre UFO-shaped object appeared from under the sands after the recent storms washed away excess silt and sand.
The structure appears to be a large concrete disk with multiple legs supporting it so that it stands upright. Underneath the disk are loose wires and a sign warning of electrocution danger. The object is on the lifeboat side and locals have suggested it may be related to an old wind turbine in the area from the seventies.
Until it is officially identified, it’s a pretty spooky and interesting find!
