Hackpen Hill, Nr. Broad Hinton, Wilts. 

(Close to White Horse hillside figure)

Detail & Location: This circle was reported on the 19th of June. It is in a field of Barley and measures approximately 200ft in diameter. See the Google Maps link for precise location. 

Visiting: The farmer has asked that no one goes in this field. He has threatened to cut the circle out if people continue to go in the field. Please respect his wishes. 

Location & History: Hackpen Hill has been the site of many, many crop circles over the past 30 years. The hillside is home to the Hackpen Hill White Horse. You can read more about the horse here. 

About this crop circle: The design is is a ten-fold spinner. A large flattened circle contains ten standing triangles sitting around a small central circle.  

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.

This is a lovely 10-fold design with a nice Golden Section proportion which locates the points the triangles. 

An Analysis by Peter van den Burg

I can tell straight from the start that no two triangles in this formation are identical. So any analysis or reconstruction either needs to take that into account, or is as good as any other.
For me the emphasis was therefor on finding a way to reconstruct on paper without all too many different construction lines.
The apex' of the triangles marks the Golden mean section in relation to the perimeter circle.
I think it is significant to recognise that the triangles are not right side triangles. The angle between sunrise and sunset, from the location of the crop circle is 98°, which seems to be more in tune with those in the formation.
It just so happens that the angle between moon rise and moon set on the 17th also was approximately the same. In fact, they virtually mirror each other. Which may favor Maya's suggestion that the formation was already two days old when it was reported.
The satellite photo shows sun rise and sun set in yellow (which doesn't change between the two dates), moon rise and moonset on the 19 th in light blue, moon rise and moon set on the 17th in red.
The other marker represents the Love formation from june 4. If you go straight north from the new formation you can find the harvested ghost of the july 23 formation from 2020. Which also was a ten fold design.
There are some distinct separations in the lay. The ring around the triangles is worth mentioning because this ring does not touch the standing triangles, but is slightly beyond that. This circle has equal circumference to a square placed in the perimeter circle. (Note how nicely that is placed with the triangles). This square also equals the total area of flattened crop in the formation.
(This is inversed from last year's formations at Stanton st Bernard and Roundway, where the standing triangles where associated with a square in relation to combined area. Here it is the flattened crop. I find that rather beautiful. It's not about squares ( physical plane) falling apart, but rather the circular ( Spiritual ) permeating the square.

Please do not visit this crop circle. The farmer has said he will cut the circle out if people continue to go in the field. Google Maps Link. OS Grid Ref: SU 13032 74445 Altitude: 885 ft
