Rendlesham, Suffolk, in England was the location of the possible UFO episode known as the Rendlesham Incident. But, just to show you how closely anomalies occur, there was an earlier tradition of a Mermaid at Rendlesham. In 1814 a pool at Rendlesham, possibly the pond at Cottage Wood, was said to be tenanted by this water dweller. In Suffolk it was not uncommon to tell children bodies of water contained Mermaids to keep them from going too close to the edge.
