(Near Woodcate Lane)
Detail & Location: This circle was reported on the 18th of July. It is in a field of wheat and measures approximately 200ft in diameter. See the Google Maps link for precise location.
Crop Circle Reporting and Covid-19: As in 2020, we will not be censoring crop circle locations during the continuing Covid-19 pandemic. We consider the reporting of crop circles to be in the spirit of journalism, and censorship to be an anathema to that spirit. Therefore, we will be treating the crop circle community as adults and asking everyone to approach the information carefully and responsibly. This will include not visiting the circles if the farmer has not given explicit permission to do so and should permission be given adhering to any covid restrictions in place.
Flying during the Covid-19 Pandemic: The UK is coming out of covid restrictions during the summer of 2021. However, the restrictions of the past year have had a heavy impact on the aviation industry. Flying will continue to be very challenging for us this year, with access to aircraft and pilots still very restricted. We will continue to cover the season, flying where we can, while continuing to work photographer colleagues to bring you as much coverage as we can. We’d like to extend our deep gratitude to all those who generously share their images with us.
Visiting: The farmer has now but this circle from the field. Please do not enter this field. Thank you.
History & Connections: There have been circles at Upham before. Mainly back in the 1990s.
Design & Symbolism: This crop circle has a curious design. We have seen the boxes in the perimeter many times before. It will be very interesting to draw. I have some very definite ideas as to what this design is, but you’ll have to wait until I draw it for more!
Check back for for information as the season progresses.
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.

Please Help to keep us Flying in 2021: 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.
