2005 Crop Circles

Crop Circles photographed in 2005

Welcome to the 2005 Image Gallery

2005 was a really intense crop circle season with a veritable confetti storm of formations, many, many iconic crop circles occurred this summer. The huge 1000ft  formation at Beckhampton was to set the tone, a major formation in barley, so early in the year was quite unprecedented. Thirteen centres of curvature are needed to draw the design: the number of transformation. It was followed by wonderful formations at West Woods, Lurkeley Hill and Lane End down (the latter in Hampshire), but the 3rd of July brought an iconic formation to East Field in Alton Barnes, a double square or octogram with a myriad of standing and flattened boxes inside. It remains on of our all time favourite formations! Two beautiful circles appeared at Avebury, a hexagonal necklace and a quintuplet of quintuplets, then to top the season two imperious circles one at Wayland’s Smithy and one at Woolstone Hill, both on the Wilts/Oxon border. The Woolstone Hill circle was simply breath talking. A central hexagram surrounded by sixteen squared spirals and finally seventy-two feathers contained within a ring – it measured approximately 400ft in diameter! For this new website we have gone back through our archive, and painstakingly scanned and cleaned up many of our images to share with you for the first time – we hope you enjoy them!
