Description and Information:
First reported April 21st 2005. The first Oxfordshire formation in rape for some years and again found within the Garsington/Toot Baldon "hot spot" although in a location not reported before. It is on high ground near to a 4 tall trees, but in May it could only be seen on the ground from the path next to 3 barns at SU 572997.
The formation consists of two features. The larger is a "galaxy" style circle with two spiralling arms and a tapering tongue of standing crop at the centre. This measures about 70ft diameter. About 100ft further to the East is a looping "S" shape which cannot be seen from distant views.
The crop is recovering rapidly but orginally looked to be heavily flattenend with few broken stems
