Froxfield, Wilts.

(North of Froxfield, near Cake Wood)

Detail & Location: This circle was reported on the 9th July. It is in a field of Wheat and measured approximately 240ft in diameter. See the Google Maps link for precise location. 

Visiting: After repeatedly asking people not to visit this field, the farmer has now sadly cut this crop circle from the field.

Location & History: Froxfield has had circles in its vicinity before. Most notably in 1994 and further back. 

About this crop circle: This is a hexagonal design, with an obvious flaw in the geometry.

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.

IMPORTANT: We would like to thank  The Hampshire Flyer for his kind permission to use his great photos of this crop circle on our website. 

Image Licencing

We can supply high resolution images of many of our photographs and the sky is the limit as to what they can be used for! Choose from our extensive library or contact us to commission aerial photography for your project.

An Analysis by Peter van den Burg

Froxfield (Cake woods), July 9th, 2022
Again we are presented with a formation that is pretty neat in its execution, but not in its alignments. This leads to different sizes and angles for each of the six components. So choices have to be made to what the onlooker thinks is the right one.
The design seems very much to invite you to take a pair of scissors in hand (NOT the fabric scissors! Please) if you want to reconstruct on paper, as the geometric template is cut and turned 30°. And one segment is turned again to express the reversed direction.
In the field adjacent to the formation we can see a line that is reminiscent of the Cassiopeia constellation / Love formation again. We may be hinted here to look further at the binary code of that one. Either reverse polarity or direction of a portion of the code? Hope you have fun with that.
But i think the formation tells of other things too. Last year we were presented with a fractured square in the formation at Stanton st Bernard from may 10, and a shattered square at Roundway hill on august 18. I think what we are looking at here is something similar, but with a cube. A cubist cube if you will; A cube that is presented from an integral view. We see the exterior and interior simultaneously.
The beauty of isometric projection, such as we see here where horizontal lines are placed at a 30° angle, is that the sidelength of the faces of the cube are not distorted by perspective. This is what makes this type of projection so useful in technical drawings and lay outs. If the sidelength of a cube has a value of 1, this remains 1 in isometric projection. But if you are going to draw a sphere the radius increases slightly, because you look up and over the top of the sphere. This increment is √1,5. So a sphere with diameter 1 will be a circle with diameter 1,225 in isometric projection.
Coincidentally, if you take the combined area of standing crop in this formation and convert that to a circle, this circle does exactly that. It will represent a sphere inside the cube.
Viewed like that the formation becomes an intimate sibling of the previous formation at Micheldever station. Imagine looking straight at a cube and watch a sphere moving through that. Like a bullet perhaps. Tearing the cube apart.
This may feel a bit dramatic. It's not that violent. I think it is about our perception of the physical world (square/ cube). We see the Divine (circle/ sphere) manifested through that. Enlightenment is about understanding the illusionary-, or if you don't want to go that far, at least fleeting nature of reality. Understanding the nature of the sphere will change our perception of the cube. Seeing the world changing in the rate we currently experience may seem violent and insecure. But it is also empowering. If there ever was a time where we can wilfully change the world for the better, Now is that time.
