2016 Circles: East Field II

Josh Carson loves nothing better than a crop circle on his land, the latest appearing on 22nd July. True to form, Mr Carson soon had the blades lowered to cut out this old school design.

This canal was built over and through the site of some local watermills and the pumps providing the water for the canal also lowered the river levels so that the remaining watermills were no longer viable. The mill was in operation for 100 years,...
