Research Groups

It may surprise you to learn that crop circle research is not as organised as it once was. During the early 1990’s there was a Centre For Crop Circle Studies in the UK, not a physical centre but an organised group with branches across the UK. However, with the advent of the internet researchers and enthusiasts began connecting more freely and effectively across the worldwide web. With the  invention of social media, in the last five years or so, this has become a powerful way to connect on a one to one basis. You can find our Facebook page here.

Many researchers and enthusiasts still meet annually at conferences. Our own conference held in the heart of crop circle country is a great place to meet the crop circle family and come and be part of what’s happening. You can read more about our annual conference here.

Here is a list of websites you might find interesting:
