About our Photographic Enlargements: Each 10 x 15 inch image is printed on glossy photographic paper and is supplied hand-rolled and posted in a strong cardboard tube or is flat-packed to ensure safe delivery. We have chosen a selection of our favourite crop circles from the 2018 season for you to choose from.
Hackpen Hill (1) 2018:
Location: Hackpen Hill is a regular site for crop circles and many have been seen here over the years. They do not always occur in the same field every year, sometimes they appear at the top of the hill by the ancient Ridgeway path that connects Hackpen, Avebury and onto Barbury Castle. However, this field did have a circle in 2017.
The nearby Hackpen White Horse was cut to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. Although little is known about the origins of the horse it is believed to have been cut by Henry Eatwell, parish clerk of Broad Hinton and also the local publican. The horse measures 90ft by 90ft and is best viewed from the A361 at Broad Hinton. You can read more about the horse here.
Design & Symbolism: The design of this formation bears a close resemblance to the formation at the Rollright Stones at the end of last season (2017 – see here). The stretched pentagrams and the marriage of four (square) and five (pentagram stars) is definitely a variation on the same theme. The 2017 Rollrights formation was a really innovative solution for marrying four and five-fold geometry – it was commented upon by several geometers I know.
