Monarch’s Way, nr Wooton Wawen, Warks
This unusual and very pretty circle appeared on the 7th of August. The largest circle measures approximately 60ft in diameter and the formation is about 300ft in length (including the row of circles leading to a tree) – which seems like an umbilical row of beads seemingly tethering it to the tree in the field. However, the central feature of this crop circle has to be its elaborate floor lay in which a off centre sun with emanating rays can be seen. In some ways this circle and rays is similar to the circle at Stitchcombe earlier in the year, and is a recurring motif in crop circle design over the years. Some have linked it to the forthcoming eclipse – but in times past the design has had no such associations. To me this symbol showed how connected (tethered) the crop circle phenomenon is to the landscape in all kinds of ways – this was just one example.

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.
Please Help to keep us Flying in 2017: 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.
