Report by Julie O’Brien © 2009

i am writing this report in response to several others i have read with regards this formation. had i not seen this formation with my own eyes i couldn’t have believed it possible..stunningly creative and detailed, amazingly alive with energy, it had more visual, spatial and auditory effect than walking into a magnificent cathedral…..the size and design of the formation, the height of each individual plant, and the detail at ground level of each individual circle, would have taken an army of artists many years to complete…..anyone not seeing this for the miracle it really is may want to consider asking themselves why?

This formation was aggressively destroyed by the farmer very quickly after its discovery. Some details of the formation were very impressive in terms of ‘pretty’ picture construction, however, at a more objective level it was readily clear (due to a particular pattern of damage to the laid wheat) that this was a hoax crop circle…. ‘real’ for some no doubt, just due to the fact that it was there.

Those circle hoaxers just don’t seem to be able to straighten out those mature curled seed-heads with their sticks and string…

This 200 feet formation had many interesting elements incorporated within its laid crop area. Much multi directional crop layering was present in the central part of the formation. Also a significant proportion of the laid mature wheat showed very little sign of obvious physical damage. The formation is interestingly positioned within an ancient inclosure or settlement.

Reported July 28 2009 (58)

“I don’t know if you heard that a formation was reported on the 28th of July at Winterbourne Bassett. The farmer destroyed it early in the morning before anyone had the chance to photograph it from the air or visit it on the ground. Today I went over there to take a look at the sad remains of the formation. All I could make out was that it had been fairly large (seems to have spanned five tram lines) and that the periphery had been made up by a ring about one metre wide. From the few sections of stalks still lying on the ground, it looked like the pattern must have been quite complex. To my great joy, I discovered that the farmer had not cut grapeshot at the corner of the field. Seeing the elegant swirl in that little circle (about to metres in diameter), I can only imagine that the lay in the main formation must have been very beautiful.”

Three days later another formation appeared alongside this destroyed glyph.

I found this large formation, based on 12-fold
geometry with pictograms in triangular segments
around a large flattened central circle mirrored
on the tramlime angle, very interesting, tucked
away in an amazing landscape. Frequent orbs
around dusk and the long walk in the countryside,
and even a falling star, made a pleasant and

An incredibly neat pattern on the ground and from the air – but nevertheless, all the laid crop areas that we scrutinized at close quarters was crushed and creased in a repetitive pattern – leading us to conclude that the origins of this circle were no doubt local and very mechanical.

This formation was discovered at approximately 5am on July 14 2009. The main body of the formation measures at around 100 feet, with the entire formation at around 180 feet. Four circle hoaxers (Mathew Williams and ‘friends’) were recorded entering the field and making this formation over a four hour period. During that night some ‘anomalous phenomena’ were recorded in the area of the circle. On the ground in the morning of day one the vast majority of the laid plants that we examined were noted as heavily crushed, broken off entirely or pressed heavily into the soil – very much in keeping with human circle hoaxer mechanics.

Classic quintuplet design in spring barley. Central circle laid clockwise, satellites laid in alternate directions, with laid crop overlying the plants forming the ring. Each satellite had a single off-set central tuft. Although these tufts were clearly worse for wear from recent very heavy rain, they still clearly demonstrated a tight and precise construction. Overall, a pleasing little formation.

This formation was partiality destroyed by the farmer in the morning of day one.

Additional elements and a general make-over were discovered attached to this formation on July 13 2009. Due to an incident that occurred at the site in the morning of the secondary discovery no detailed on the ground consideration of the glyph was viable. We strongly recommend that those wishing to visit this formation wear a flak-jacket or some decent body-armor.

Note: It is noteworthy that there was a farm worker with a shotgin camped at the edge of the formation the night the secondary elements ‘a[[eared’….. And he says he neither saw nor heard a thing – In fact he was unaware of the additions to the formation intil they were pointed out to him.

Reported July 9 2009 (47)

This pyramid formation spans across approximately 250 feet of mature wheat. On the ground the laid crop was noted as extremely neat. Throughout the formation. We discovered a very large number of anomalies in the laid down wheat plants. these anomalies manifest as “blown nodes”, massively expanded nodes and severe bending at the nodes. As we can not be sure when this formation arrived all ground observations have to be aproached with caution as laid crop reacts to sunlight and other environmental factors in many ways.

Thanks to Herma and the Egyptian crew for the ride. extra thanks for the Egyptian for eating our test samples.

This circle was discovered in the morning of June 28 2009. It can be seen from the nearby A4, as a vague patch in the middle of an elegant blue field of Linseed / Flax. Inside the 70 foot circle the vast majority of the delicate plants were totally undamaged. Was more or less impossible to walk within this circle without causing massive damage to laid and standing crop. When human circle hoaxers operate in this type of crop, they tend to smash all the plants in their path.

UPDATE.

This circle was reported missing from the field on July 1st 2009.

This crop circle came in two distinct phases. The first phase, central circle, was very interesting and much overlooked, imo. Very curious effects in laid plants were noted but not recorded by the observer. It was interesting to note that this crop circle only received attention once a ‘pretty pattern’ had been made around the existing central circle.

South Field, Near Alton Barnes, Wiltshire.
Reported June 27 2009 (33)

On approach, the pattern of the formation appeared ragged and incoherent. The crop in the larger downed areas was unevenly laid, with large sections near tramlines untouched and much of the fallen crop bent only slightly off vertical. Similarly in many of the small shapes the crop was feebly laid.
The edges of these shapes were poorly defined.

The laid crop was heavily damaged in places, with mud-covered crushed stalks and heads, particularly evident in the lines either side of the ‘swallow’ at the head of the formation. Mud was ubiquitous across much of the laid crop. Crease marks were evident throughout the formation, with multiple parallel marks across stems not uncommon. In some places, the plants had been so thoroughly stamped into the ground that they were caked in mud and all but destroyed.

(Looks like cc hoaxers have a real problem with the seed-head issue… CM)

Martinsell Hill, Near Oare, Wiltshire.
Reported June 25 2009 (32)


Approaching the field from the Ridgeway, a gap in the hedge and track through the grass to the top of the field was evident. Entering the arc around the dew pond first, I saw a large amount of mud on the downed stems, mainly in a line along the middle of the arc. Mud was also apparent along the ‘streamers’ emanating from the circles. However, the circles themselves were virtually mud-free. The soil was very damp and sticky from recent rain and obviously more so around the dew pond.

The whole of the arc and all the circles were laid clockwise. All the plants in the streamers were all laid running from the circles to the tips. The smaller circles displayed central swirls. The seventh circle from the end had well presented, small, crescent arc with circle of standing plants in the centre.

The downed crop was laid straight throughout, with curves formed by clumps of plants being laid in different directions, rather than individual plants being bent. Bent and elongated nodes were present, most of which were bending to right plants back into vertical position towards the light, with recovery of this young wheat being evident throughout. However, I did find a few examples of nodal elongation down towards the soil (see photo). The lay in the circles was uneven and inconsistent, with lines and groups of vertical plants that appeared untouched in between the downed crop.

Milk Hill. Near Alton Barnes, Wiltshire.
Reported June 21 2009. Phase 3 REPORT – JUNE 30 (29)


The overall length of the latest addition to the Milk Hill formation is formidable. Although not measured on the ground, I would estimate ‘Phase 3’ to stretch to a total of 800 to 900 feet in length. All the ‘shapes’ are close to one another, with no more than 3-4 feet distance between them.

All the downed plants were laid straight, with no evidence of bending or elongation of nodes. The lay was uneven, being lightly brushed over in some places, but pressed over firmly near the base of the stems in others with little breakage, ensuring large areas of crop lay tight against the ground.
The soil was dry and friable and the plants free of mud. A significant number of crushed and creased stems were evident within the various shapes. Some crease marks ran parallel across several stems. Several well constructed and neat central swirls were evident, although other smaller circles displayed plants squashed heavily but chaotically against in the ground.

This formation measures approximately 400 feet in length. The bird can be clearly viewed from Barbury Castle from the North bride. On the ground the circle was considered messy with much damage to the laid barley, perhaps due to a substantial number of previous visitors. Given the markings seen in the crop from the air and ground shots it is clear that this formation was laid down in strips (three feet wide) – rather than a single sweep.

The farmer of this field is not happy and does not want people on his land.

This formation is the first to arrive in Wheat this year. Inside the circle the crop lay is flowing, and shimmering in the sunlight like running water. There are quite a few points of interest where the crop is intricately laid. Especially around the central area,

Waylands Smithy, Near Kingstone Coombs. Oxfordshire.
Reported June 13 2009 (23)

The formation was easy to access, being only a few yards from the Ridgeway,through a gap in the hedge or from the copse, although it was not visible from t he footpath itself. Although the crop had been laid lightly, the laid plants were uniformly snapped quite violently at the base throughout the formation. There were no heavy marks visible in the soil. We found the odd crease mark on the laid stems. These were few and far between and could have been caused by people
walking on the downed crop or by mechanical pressing. We found no evidence of multiple crease marks in a line across several stems.

Although the laid crop demonstrated a uniform and straight direction in terms of the direction of lay, lacking any sideways layering or multi-directional lay of the crop, some of the laid plants showed bending of the nodes in a vertical direction back up towards the sun. All the bentnodes we found pointed upwards, not sideways. I believe this upwards turning of pl ants can be attributed to natural phototropism of individual plants back towards the light source subsequent to them being laid. We were at the formation approximately 24 hours after it was first reported and I consider that in such a young wheat crop this would be sufficient time for thisnatural readjustment to commence. Recovery of the crop was evident through out the formation.

The ends of each segment were rough and inconsistent, with some displaying a jagged, dog tooth effect and others squared off at 90 degrees to thestanding crop. The very centre of the formation was bare soil with very flattened plants splaying out from it and had clearly been walked upon quite heavily. Thecentre displayed no swirls or plaiting of the stalks or any other kind of centrepiece. The outer sections of the formation were not connected to the inner, but there was a visible path cut through the standing crop joining two of the segments, although this could have been caused by visitors after the event.

Overall, the formation displayed a lack of neatness, which I felt was also evident on the aerial shots that I viewed later.

Upon entering the formation just south of Chiseldon in the mid-afternoon of the 6th, it was clear by the look and flow of the crop that this formation was something refreshingly special.

I was at least the 4th visitor but the formation looked very neat and gave a natural impression with well defined edges and lay of crop. The centre spirals (in some of the flattened areas there were two) looked relatively neat in general considering that the formation was reported on the 5th, and a more than a few spirals were indeed showpieces with residing energy. There was a lovely spiral, just south of the centre of the formation, with a small bunch of standing crop which especially held a warm energy a few inches to the north-west, the same direction the standing crop was being blown. The formation showed no evidence of physical damage or presence beyond a few careful visitors and showed uniform bending within the first inch of the stems. I was a little surprised that I couldn’t find any really good examples of clearly bent nodes

Manton, Near Marlborough, Wiltshire.
Reported May 4 2009 (8)

This Pictogram was discovered from the air in the early morning of May 4 2009. During the night of the creation of the glyph there was moderate rainfall in the local area.

The Glyph measures approximately 800 feet in length and around 250 feet at its widest point. The rape-seed crop is around 5 feel high. The formation stretches over the crest of the hill at the top of the field, making any direct full length sight line out of the question – and therefore any attempt at hoaxing this event would be ectremely problematic.

More or less all the laid rape-seed plants in the formation were noted as severely damaged at the base of the stems. Also much severe bruising was well evident on the laid plant stems. Some of this damage to the plants can be seen in the ground shots on this page. Most notably this damage shows as dark strips that run down the centers of the narrow avenues in the formation. All damage to this formation looked systematic and intentional, and did not appear consistant with will understood effects seen on ‘fake’ formations in this type of crop.

According to a very qualified and certificated tracker, (KF) who was present during our ibvestigation, “the visible damage to the plants must have occurred between 5 and 6 hours prior to our inspection”. This damage therefore must have occurred between 6am and 7am on May 4. A small key-ring torch and a sweet wrapper were found ‘placed’ in the formation during our late morning inspection of the site, Neither the paper wrapper nor the torch had been exposed to the night-time rain or early dawn dew, therefore it is very probable that they were inserted later in the morning. This could be considered at best extremely curious!.

This formation was first discovered from the air in the morning of April 29 2009. The entire formation spans across 230 feet of Oil-Seed-Rape (Canola). The central circle measures 15 feet in diameter. The central circle was very messy and well mashed up by late afternoon on day one. The remainder of the laid crop areas was springy and largely undamaged.

Liddington Castle, Wiltshire.
Reported April 25 2009 (5)


From crop circle hoaxer Dene Hine…
“There were 4 circles, two of them were flattened and two were just outlined.
They were all joined together by straight lines.
I was hard to tell the state of the crop as there was a torrential downpour.”

A couple days after the event we discovered that Hine was the gifted creator of this ‘art’.

Morgans Hill, Near Devizes, Wiltshire
Reported April 24 2009 (4)


This formation spans across approximately 308 feet of 5ft high flowering Oil-Seed-Rape and is noted as one of the largest circles ever to appear in this type of crop.

On the ground the plants are laid extremely neatly over the entire formation. The vast majority of laid plants are undamaged.

BE ADVISED, THE FARMER DOES NOT WANT PEOPLE IN THIS CIRCLE

Green Street, Avebury, Wiltshire.
Reported April 23 2009 (3).


This formation was first reported on April 23rd 2009. The glyph is located approximately a half mile to the North East of the Avebury stone circle and can be viewed from the East bank of the Henge. The overall diameter of the formation is 298ft. The inner laid circle area measures 66ft in diameter. The apparent center point of the formation, consisting of a tightly bunched knot of Rape-seed (Canola) plants, is offset from the actual center. On the ground the glyph is very neat and sharp throughout. A proportion of the laid plants are broken at the base whilst a very substantial amount are neatly bent with no breakage or bruising.

West Kennett Barrow, Avebury, Wiltshire.
Reported April 19 2009 (2)


This formation in Oil-seed-Rape (Canola) was discovered from the air on the morning of April 19 2009. The circle measures 211ft in diameter and would be considered very large for an early Spring Rape-seed formation.

Due to the overt presence of this formation in the landscape at West Kennett it was heavily visited very quickly after its discovery. The effect of many visitors has left a very large proportion of the laid crops severely damaged.

The Ridgeway, Avebury, Wiltshire.
Reported April 14 2009


This first UK Crop formation of 2009 was discovered on the 14th of April and is located close to the Ridgeway and approximately one mile East of the ancient stone circle complex at Avebury. The formation spans 118ft across the field of immature, 3ft high, Oil-Seed-Rape. Much of the crop within the design has fully recovered itself to a vertical growing stance. Moderate damage to the still laid plants is well evident and could possibly be attributed to a small number of previous visitors to the glyph. A small proportion of the laid plants are totally undamaged and continue to grow in a healthy fashion along the ground where they fell during the construction process.
