Bratton Camp & Westbury White Horse, Wiltshire

Bratton Camp is a large Iron Age hill fort which sits on the top of Bratton Down at the western edge of the Salisbury Downs. The views from the top of this hill are magnificent and it’s popular with paraglider, walkers and kite flyers. The Westbury White horse sits on the eastern side of the hill and is approximately 400 years old, unlike the many other such horses in the Wiltshire landscape this one has had its original chalk covered with painted concrete to keep its appearance and shape. It is a strikingly beautiful location for crop circles, and there have been several around Bratton Camp in years past, this one lies not directly beneath the White Horse, but to the North of the horse. You can read more about the area here.

The circle is a very pretty six-fold flower with unusually shaped petals which are then decorated with parabolic net-like patterns. The centre contains a particularly fine standing ring, complete with off centre swirled crop.

FYI: This formation features in our 2016 Crop Circle Photo Box-Set and you can see a section of 10 x 15 inch Photo Enlargements from this season here and 20 x 30 inch Photo Enlargements here. This formation also features in our Crop Circle Calendar 2017 and our Crop Circle Year Book 2016. Every sale helps us continue our work!

Please Help to keep us Flying: If you have enjoyed this site, looking at our pictures and information please consider making a small donation to keep us flying. There are so few of us left regularly recording the circles it’s really important that we continue. And while some now use drones to record the circles, it is important that there are still images taken from aircraft where the best quality camera equipment can be used and images that include the broad vista of the landscape can be taken.  This kind of photography is expensive and it gets harder with each passing year to raise the funds we need to continue our work, but if everyone who regularly looked at this website made a small donation we would meet the funds we need. You can make a donation here.
