Description and Information (by Ellis Taylor)

I've just been alerted to a new formation close to the last one at Cuttmill. SU652967. Well done to Geoff ambler and Andy Kingston, who drives all the way up here from Kent to fly over and take photos of the crop circles in this area. How about some others sharing the load? FlyCB at Kidlington charge about 95 per hour. I've already done 3 flights. Anyone else committed enough in this area? Alternatively, wouldn't it be worth considering setting up a pool for regular or eemergency flights. How many are we missing? Ellis

I've been hoping to report a crop circle in Oxfordshire, but the website will not 'submit' the form. I hope it is Ok to send you the report and two pictures by email instead.Location: Watlington Road, near Chalgrove Map Reference: x=465500, y=196500 Crop: Wheat Description: A very interesting set of four spirals forming a cross. Date: 22/07 Regrettably, the pictures do not do justice to the circle's size, as only two of the four arms are actually discernable. Nonetheless, I hope they convey the just of what it must look like from the air, and remain, Sabine Sackel

Formation is a gem of geometrical precision. Each spiral centre is a 22 ft diam circle with bunched wheat at midpoint. There are thousands of feet of 4ft spiralling pathways leading to the central circle which is 31 ft diam. Estimated total length down the axis is 480ft. Has similar ground appearance to the very large Garsington formation of July 14th being situated on a gentle slope running down to the B480 road. Formation is in field at point where a disused road meanders back to Chalgrove Field memorial off the B480.
