Stonehenge (near visitor centre), Wilts.

(Near Larkshill)

Detail & Location: This circle was first reported on the 30th June 2024 in a field of ‘wheat-straw’ (a tall wheat variety used in thatching) close to the Stonehenge Visitor Centre. Google Maps Link. OS Grid Ref: SU 09693 43099. What-three-words: boards.grandson.brochure
The circle measures approximately 180ft in diameter. 

First Flight: We took our first flight of the 2024 season over this formation on July 4th. The sun was out, but it was pretty windy, making it a tricky flight. The formation was still looking practically pristine from the air and looked amazing in the July sunshine. 

Visiting: You will need permission from the farmer to enter this field. As far as we are aware no such public permission has so far been given, therefore if you wish to visit this circle you will need to seek permission yourself. 

Location & History: Stonehenge is a UNESCO world heritage site and is famous the word over. It has been the site of many, many crop circles cover the past 30 years. You can read more about Stonehenge on the English Heritage website.

About this crop circle: This crop circle is made from a collection of six circles and fifteen semi circles, all arranged in a five-armed pattern. It is placed adjacent to one of the many ancient tumuli (earthen mounds) in this part of Wiltshire. Interestingly, Stonehenge contains many of the same rations and proportions that are regularly found in the crop circles and their placement close to scores of our ancient sites makes a fascinating juxtaposition between old and new sacred sites, the permanent (stone) and the transient (crops) while drawing a golden thread between them because of their shared proportion, number and ratio. 

Please see the Geometry Gallery below for more details as we have them.

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 2024: We hope to take to the skies again in 2024 to record the circles that appear this summer. 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.
