The Croppie finds something particularly magical when it comes to Hampshire crop circles. The county is the original home of the contemporary phenomenon and has a very different feel to Wiltshire. It’s hard to pin down why; perhaps it’s the landscape and the proximity of many circles to the beautiful, small city of Winchester.
The Croppie was delighted on 21 June to learn of a formation appearing atop a vast wheat field on Chilcomb Down, close to Winchester Planetarium. The design consists of overlapping circles that bring bubbles to mind. Being a fan of straightforward geometric formations, The Croppie has been lapping up the photographs published by the Crop Circle Connector and Steve Alexander.
