Etchilhampton, Devizes, Wiltshire (34)
Reported August 19 2015
According to the guy on the edge of field (Paul Jacobs, CGI) we were among the first to visit and examine this circle at close quarters. On ground all the laid plants are broken or kinked over at varying degrees of hight above ground level – as opposed to a consistent flow of crop that indicates a single uniform process of creation . Massive damage was well visible at the central area of the circle in particular with many of the stems actually broken off completely at the root. The overall pattern of damage at this event made it abundantly clear that the delivery system was heavy, lumpy and mechanical in nature.
We always find it a tiny bit suspicious when the Initial aerial photography of a given crop circle is carried out by a convicted crop circle hoaxer!.. Two days later (Aygust 20) the same circle hoaxer (Williams) wrote…
“YOU CAN VISIT THIS CIRCLE… I Met the Echilhampton farmer this morning (while doing drone photography for cropcircleconnector.com) and he is a very nice chap.”
Would be like me or you going out and vandalising someones house – then going back to comfort the victim/s. This entire event, the faking of the circle – it’s promotion as ‘mysterious’ in origin and the installation of CGI Jacobs at the site to reinforce the desired origin of the pattern in the minds of visitors is a cynical scam.
