Discovered August 14th, south of Wayland Smithy Long Barrow, Oxfordshire. It is one field to the east from the Ashbury "Vesica Pisces".
The "String" would appear to be a construction line, such as has been found in the Julia Sets. Either the formation is unfinished, or the circlemakers are flaunting the line, saying, "This is how we work" ! The fact that the centre of the arc would have to be within the trees at the edge of the field, makes the ol` rope trick seems unlikely.
