2017 Circles: Fonthill Down Hoax

Reported: 30 May 2017 Location: Fonthill Down, near Chicklade, Wiltshire Lead photograph by the Crop Circle Connector It’s tough not to be scathing of circles appearing in the south of Wiltshire. If one circle making team isn’t claiming responsibility on social media for what they’ve made, another circle maker is following suit. Hopefully this cute flower will escape.

Despite being only yards away from the main formation, The Croppie still couldn’t...

2017 Circles: Milk Hill, Alton Barnes

Reported: 25 May 2017 Location: Milk Hill (underneath), Alton Barnes, Wiltshire Lead photograph by Crop Circles From the Air This is what visiting crop circles used to be like. A warm, late spring afternoon; tall field of barley; dusty, dry ground and a fantastic view. All underneath the Alton Barnes White Horse. The only thing that comes close is Gary King’s incredible photograph of this formation. A few people online have commented that the circle looks like a fidget spinner wearing a crown. The Croppie walked the deceptively long trek up into the field, sticking to the tramlines and...
