The Purdown BT Tower which dominates the skyline over north and east Bristol is in fact a refuelling station for UFOs – at least according to one of the more interesting letters to the Bristol Post in recent years.
Writing from Montpelier, Ernest B Skidmore has spoken of an unusual experience he had near the tower, on the same day as a UFO was spotted and filmed by the police helicopter over the Bristol Channel.
He even claims the shape of a copse of trees nearby spells out the letter B – and is some kind of sign for UFOs that they can refuel there.
The tower, near the Stoke Park estate, has been a Bristol landmark for decades, and contains communications equipment
Here is his letter, below:
Post readers will be aware of the UFO sighting made by a police helicopter over the Bristol channel on September 16th last year. The craft was invisible to the human eye but could be seen using the helicopter’s infra-red cameras. It was circular in shape and looked like it had a big eye ball looking back at the helicopter.
Readers may recall that last September 16th was an unusually sunny clear day in the Bristol area. At least it was until a mysterious fog fell upon the Purdown area of Bristol near to where I live.
I was walking my dogs near the so called B.T tower on Purdown that day. The mist was thickest on top of the tower.
This mist seemed to come from the horn shaped objects attached to the sides of the tower and travelled upwards. Meanwhile a strange low pitched hum could be heard, similar to a Theremin, and a pink tinged luminescence could be observed in the mist above the tower.

My dogs began to whine and I felt unaccountably out of sorts, as though my energy was being drained through the top of my head. The hum grew deeper and began to oscillate exactly as described by people who have heard the infamous Bristol Hum.
As quickly as it began, the phenomenon was over and Purdown returned to a sunny meadow of tranquil birdsong. For years there have been local rumours saying that the Purdown tower is a refuelling station for UFOs.
Cables travel up to its very pinnacle. And; the close proximity of National Grid pylons, abruptly terminating a few hundred yards away, appear to confirm this theory. If you look at the area of the ‘tower’ using Google Earth you will also notice that the hedgerows in the area form a huge arrow pointing towards the tower from the east.
There are some woods at the base of this arrow a couple of miles away near the new Cheswick village. These have been carefully sculpted into a giant letter B. Could it be that these are inter-galactic road signs, clearly visible from space, letting space travellers know there is a filling station and that it is near Bristol? It all seems beyond coincidence to me. Of course the space ships that use the services are invisible to the naked eye.
But now that we know they can be seen using special infra-red cameras, perhaps the council could set some up around Purdown so we could gauge how many UFOs stop here to fill up. If fitted with special lenses, the old yellow Gatso cameras moth-balled a few years ago could be used for this. And finally, do the ‘customers’ stop and stretch their legs (if they have them) while here? This may explain the many ghost sightings reported on Purdown over the years.
