The Ridgeway, nr Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire
This crop circle appeared on the morning of June 23rd and is in almost the same position as the Dream-catcher formation of 2013. It measures approximately 130ft in diameter and is in a field of young green wheat.
The farmer has opened this field to visitors and is charging £3.00 per person with money going to the Brighter Futures cancer charity. You pay your money on entry to the field. Park at the top of Hackpen Hill, where the Ridgeway intersects the road, then walk along the ridgeway until you reach the field.
This is an extremely challenging image. Normally the crop circles do not show us such seemingly aggressive imagery and its meaning remains enigmatic. Some made a somewhat tenuous link between this image and the UK’s exit from the EU, but apart from the date this link seems more than tentative. We’ve had dolphins, and generic fish imagery, but sharks bearing their teeth?!
If this were to symbolise anything to me it would be more like the cannibalisation taking part in our society at present, whether thats the cannibalisation of our economies, or cultures as a whole (literally eating itself from the inside). The sharks are circling around a triquetra, a Celtic symbol of the trinity, or three as (or in) one – what might the triquetra symbolise in this context? Should one take this crop circle seriously, it’s a fascinating question.
FYI: This formation features in our 2016 Crop Circle Photo Box-Set and you can see a section of 10 x 15 inch Photo Enlargements from this season here and 20 x 30 inch Photo Enlargements here. This formation also features in our Crop Circle Year Book 2016. Every sale helps us continue our work!
Please Help to keep us Flying: If you have enjoyed this site, 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.

Geometrically speaking this formation is six-fold in essence and is based around the hexagon and the circle. More information as I have it…
