This circle measured approximately 180ft in diameter and was in a field of very young wheat. The circle appeared very lightly pressed and very springy. It’s very unusual to have a circle in such a immature crop, it means the design will have less definition that one would normally see in maturer plants.
The design itself is another four-fold pattern based on concentric rings and alternate standing and flattened sections – a duality and quaternary contained within a whole (a circle).
Photographic Enlargements: are now available of many of the 2017 crop circles click here to see our fantastic range.
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.
Please Help to keep us Flying in 2017: 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.

The geometry of this rather unassuming crop circle is in fact simply divine. The diameters of the circles are governed by a series of squares drawn within each circle. Beginning from the outside, one draws an outer circle and divides it by four. then you connect the four points of the circle to form a square with in the circle. The next circle is drawn inside the square, with its perimeter touching the sides of the square – this is continued for seven iterations with each circle and square diminishing in size. Gorgeous! This succession circles and squares also creates a series of golden ratios !
