Alton Priors, Wilts.
Detail & Location: This circle was first reported on the 3rd August. The circle was in a field of wheat and measured approximately 150ft in diameter. See the Google Maps link for precise location.
Visiting: The farmer has requested that no one enter the field. Please respect his wishes, thank you. The harvesters are out in force and the harvest is now in full swing.
Location & History: Alton Priors, Alton Barnes, and West Stowel have had many circles over the years. The circles have been absent from these fields though for a few years. It was thrilling to see a crop circle back in this a magical area.
About this crop circle: This circle is a five-fold pentagonal design made from circles of differing sizes.
Please see the Geometry Gallery below for more details.
Visiting the Circles? If you are thinking of visiting any crop circles this summer, please read our Visiting the Crop Circles section. It’s full of useful information and etiquette for visiting the countryside and the crop circles. Please remember that you should not enter any fields without the express permission of the farmer and you will need to be aware of and abide by any restrictions in place in the UK in response to the Covid-19 pandemic – which at the time of writing is none.

Please Help to keep us Flying in 2022: If you have enjoyed 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.
