But linking it all back to what happened in a Suffolk Forest in 1980 is the most difficult part. Did they start something (or just continue it?) in 1980 there? Was it moved to Wales and elsewhere after the incident? Or is it all unrelated?

That Wales thing was bugging me. Back in the late 80s -1987/88 there was a quarry being used for 'secret' testing around 20 miles south of Machynlleth. It was affecting TV signals, loud noises were heard and locals were getting agitated.
I've found the above on an interesting blog
The site was later used by an explosives company in liaison with the local University.
Whether that links back to earlier tests being conducted in and around Rendlesham Forest in 1980 I really don't know.
But that blog is worth a read. It might tie in with some other things you have Adam?
Colonel Ted Conrad, the base commander alleged to have spoken to aliens, has a more dramatic version of the story. At 10.30 on that fateful night, he recalls five Air Force policemen spotted lights from what they thought was a small plane descending into the forest. Two of the men tracked the object on foot and came upon a large tripod-mounted craft.
It had no windows but was studded with red and blue lights. Each time the men came within 50 yards of the ship, Conrad relates, it elevated six feet in the air and backed away. They followed it for almost an hour through the woods and across a field until it took off at "phenomenal speed"...
...Conrad's chat with his men was the only official probe ever mounted, and it seems unlikely we'll ever learn more. [sic]
