“The Barge indeed is Crop Circle Central –there’s even Croppie ale for sale – and circle aficionados arrive to camp here from all over the world: in the visitors’ book Kerry from Australia has written: ‘Great crop circles! Great people!” (Sunday Telegraph). “Possibly the only pub in the country endorsed by Camra, the Seti (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute and the Rolling Stones” (The Guardian). “You can’t miss the pub, It is the one with the earthlings wearing Jesus sandals and Grateful Dead T-shirts” (Daily Telegraph).
The nearest train station is Pewsey which is reached by taking trains from Paddington (OINW) in London.

Unity 2014, Steel & Acrylic.
“The untrained eye sees a basic, unassuming steel shipping container, used only for commercial transactions. Sea imports and exports create a link with, and the perceived presence of, other cultures, the container catalyses this connection. Once subject to artistic intervention, the brutal steel form of the structure takes on a strange elegance, making an unassuming statement, but one strong enough to give the form utmost clarity. Reflecting on the relationship between humankind and the contemporary world, the human form positioned on top of the container, represents the utopia of an all-encompassing understanding of the universe, and on the relationship between the work of art and the whole to which it pertains, unified by the application of a single colour. Theatricality is implicit, but not omnipresent in the piece, thus the work crystallises the emergence of a poetic and artistic ‘island’. Hence ‘Unity’ becomes a metaphor for the way in which art arises by being both derived and differentiated from a network of angles and structures. The position of the piece juxtaposed against the beauty of natural oak and stone in its immediate surroundings contrasts with the classical Art Brut form.”
