The Berwyn Mountains UFO Incident - 23rd January 1974

An ongoing investigation into a hoax built up around a real UFO event



LET IT BE KNOWN that this site contains Scott L. Felton's most up-to-date statements as of 26 May 2023 on the Berwyn UFO case.

If anyone comes across statements apparently made by me, Scott L. Felton, retracting former statements made by me regarding the Berwyn UFO incident/s, these are entirely false and were not written/published by myself. This is particularly relevant at the moment as this plagiarist, Internet troll and UFO hoaxer Darren Perks has hoaxed Russell Kellett by alerting him to a fake webpage purporting to have been authored by me. Unfortunately Mr Kellett took Darren Perks' bait and has shared a goodly amount of fakery across social media and in his own website.


A hoaxer/impersonator/plagiarist has produced a rather shoddy Fake Scott Felton 'blog pretending that it is written by the real Scott Felton.

Much of the content of the Fake Scott Felton 'blog - including images - has been plagiarised from this copyrighted Berwyn website. The plagiarist is also rather sloppy with his copy/pasting, incorrectly spelling the names of people and places mentioned in our website text.

However, the plagiarist - writing as if he is the real Scott Felton - has added a large number of additional comments retracting much of what Scott has investigated and researched over a span of many years regarding the Berwyn Mountain Incident of 23rd January 1974.

Scott Felton has the following to say about the fake 'blog:
"The blog isn't mine. I'm aware of it and others. The [deleted} behind it is Darren Perks who appeared some years ago, latching himself onto animal mutilation expert Phil Hoyle. There is no one in the UK who knows more about the A M subject than Phil Hoyle. Phil's research went beyond the livestock/wild animal/human abuse with which most are familiar. There is a wider and deeper military involvement and exploitation of a real subject.
Perks turns up and in due course starts to covertly steal Phil Hoyle's research.

Perks has established dozens of fake profiles across social media. He has set up fake email addresses in Phil's name and others and he tried to use these to extract information from research colleagues. When he was rumbled, he turned nasty and started sending out abusive fake emails to researchers across the Globe. Anyone who has upset him, like I have, has been targeted.

I will put it on record here, that if anyone sees anything anywhere where I, Scott Felton, or Phil Hoyle has retracted anything, then it will be fake and please do draw my attention to it."

And NOW, finally, on to Scott L. Felton's writing on his investigations and research into the Berwyn Mountains Incident of 23rd January 1974:

One - Introduction

Because of circumstances revolving around a UFO hoax, created seemingly by the British State in the early 1990s, to confuse research & investigation into the Berwyn Mountains UFO case of 23rd January 1974, I have had no option but to attempt to expose this outrage against the UFO community and the wider Public.

Quite a few UFO enthusiasts contacted me after a book was published by author Steven Lumley purporting to show investigation into the Berwyn Mountains UFO incident. It transpired that it was nothing but an account of a scenario which first appeared in 1997 and which I had known for many years, was a hoax. I had to respond as such a huge and complex hoax had to be countered as the book appeared to be nothing more than an attempt to get this disinformation out into the Public domain.
