Winterbourne Bassett, Wilts.
(close to Hill Barn)

Detail & Location: This circle was first reported on the 4th June 2023 and is the second reported crop circle of the 2023 season in the UK. The circle was in a field of green barley close to the village of Winterbourne Bassett in Wiltshire. Google Maps Link. OS Grid Ref: SU 11154 74593. The circle measures approximately 400ft in length. 

Visiting: The farmer has already cut out the central line of this crop circle. 

Location & History: This new circle is very close-by to the first circle of the season at Broad Hinton – just down the road. So, as mentioned on the broad Hinton page, there have been many circles in this general location and there are many barrows and other markers of ancient human habitation in this area. 

About this crop circle: This circle is a classical ‘pictogram’ style design, right from the early 1990’s play-book. Always nice to see and a reminder of the origins of the phenomenon. 

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 2023: We hope to take to the skies again in 2023 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.

IMPORTANT: We’d like to thank our colleague Hannah Kathleen her kind permission to use her photos of this crop circle on our website. Thank you!
