Looking Ahead

I am not sure how to communicate how I ‘feel inside’ without sounding heartless and callous.

Day after day, ever more and more horrific reports flood in, yet we get up every day to food, water and the other essentials in life, plus additional and readily available advantages and luxuries. It is impossible to fully understand the extremes of fear, hunger, dread, torture, cold, illness and sheer hopelessness that so many people are suffering particularly in the Middle East, also Ukraine and other parts of the world.

It seems while so many terrible events are happening, people are becoming hardened to the suffering of others. How I wish the world would wake up and see that enough was enough. When will the World leaders wake up to the sickening atrocities or the slow and painful death of a people by endless bombing and starving and the prevention of all the essentials needed for life to exist?

It is only when events reach such a stage of unspeakable horror that a realisation takes place: in physical terms such as when a boil reaches a certain point - it bursts releasing the poison and letting a cure take place.

Talking MUST start so that a lasting settlement can be found. An honest unbiased solution that can and will be recognised and agreed upon by both sides. I pray with all my heart that the international community can see that there has to be a solution. An acceptable solution. No matter how long it takes. Sometimes the hardest part is to get the ball rolling and to take the initiative, grasp the situation with both hands and make a start with the intention of finding a unilateral result - and not giving up until the process has succeeded.

As we approach 2024, I have a feeling of optimism, I feel that we WILL see a gradual improvement. There are times in our lives when not everything goes according to plan. First and foremost, I wish you a very happy and productive 2024. There is no doubt that we are living in tumultuous times. The media carries endless reports of desperate conditions in Ukraine and the Middle East as a whole.

It is easy to get drawn into feelings of despair and fear, not least feeling the pain of the daily dreadful suffering of all these horrors inflicted on helpless women and children on both sides. I hope that as events become increasingly severe and unstable, there might be a shift in thinking, resulting in the need to view this as a significant opportunity to sit down and talk. Using the power of speech rather than the power of deadly arms.

Some may see this as a forlorn formula, but it seems a possible reality to me. A time when the leaders realise that enough is enough. A time when people realise the futility of their actions and can discuss the future constructively. What a wonderful opportunity that could lead to a new and better understanding of the world in which we live.

The situation reminds me of the famous, haunting song written by Pete Seeger and sung by Marlena Dietrich ‘Where have all the young men gone?’

Marlene Dietrich: Where Have All the Flowers Gone? (Live TV, 1963)

Oblivious to the outside turmoil, our hearts are raised by the actions of the natural world – slowly, snowdrops started poking their heads through the soil and are now out and in total abundance. In some warmer parts of the country, crocus and even the odd daffodil are making their annual appearance. This is always a time of great excitement as early Spring heralds the future of longer days and warmer times.

The goldfinches, long-tailed tits, robins, blue tits, coal tits and bullfinches etc, are all devouring the sunflower hearts I put out for them.

I will give you the dates for my 2024 crop circle tours.

The first tour is on Thursday, July 25th. This comes with a special private evening entry into Stonehenge. It allows you to enter the inner circle, go right up to the stones, and feel the energy radiating from them. This is an optional extra to the cost of the crop circle tour.

My second tour is on Thursday, August 1st. After visiting the circles, there is an optional extra of flying over the circles and the sacred places nearby, such as the unique Avebury stone complex, Silbury Hill, and West Kennet Long Barrow. This is very popular; people return with smiles stretching from ear to ear.

I am ever curious to know what wonders we will be given this year – this is the ‘teasing’ time of using our imaginations. Will there be a theme? Whatever, they always leave us guessing!

With my love and best wishes,

Thoughts and Themes for 2024

Bursting the Bubble

I am not sure how to communicate how I ‘feel inside’ without sounding heartless and callous.

Day after day, ever more and more horrific reports flood in, yet we get up every day to food, water and the other essentials in life, plus additional and readily available advantages and luxuries. It is impossible to fully understand the extremes of fear, hunger, dread, torture, cold, illness and sheer hopelessness that so many people are suffering particularly in the Middle East, also Ukraine and other parts of the world.

It seems while so many terrible events are happening, people are becoming hardened to the suffering of others. How I wish the world would wake up and see that enough was enough. When will the World leaders wake up to the sickening atrocities or the slow and painful death of a people by endless bombing and starving and the prevention of all the essentials needed for life to exist?

It is only when events reach such a stage of unspeakable horror that a realisation takes place: in physical terms such as when a boil reaches a certain point - it bursts releasing the poison and letting a cure take place.

As we approach 2024, I have a feeling of optimism, I feel that we WILL see a gradual improvement; the period of Advent signals a great event, it heralds a New Energy.

If we are lucky, we enjoy a gathering of family and friends - a special time that happens maybe only once a year.

However, there are many others who are not so fortunate and for some an unhappy time of accentuated loneliness and lack of friends. Where I live, there is a great awareness. People who need help, company, food and friendship are looked after so they too can have fun and food. No-one is left alone who wants to be with others.

The History of Christmas

I am going to be away from before Christmas to just after the New Year, so I wanted you to know that my last posting day will be Wednesday 13th December.

Things aren't always as they appear......

A man was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. The plane had a layover in Sacramento. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft, the plane would re-board in one hour.

Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind.

Another man had noticed him as he walked by and could tell the gentleman was blind because his Guide Dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him, and calling him by name, said, "Keith, we're in Sacramento for an hour, would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”

The blind man replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."

Picture this:

All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Guide Dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.

People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

True story....and just remember...

Things aren't always as they appear.

Interesting Results


In my last letter, I promised to send you the results of our Scientific Research Day.

As I described in my previous letter, I will just run through the basic arrangements. The date decided upon was Sunday 23rd July; the weather forecast was unsettled, a mixture of rain and sun. The date is planned some months ahead in order for our plans to fall into place. Undaunted by the forecast (we have conducted tests in rain before now), we met at the Avebury Sports and Social Club. It is a wonderfully convenient venue with good private parking and ample electrical outlets for computers etc.  This is where we conduct the first control tests.

Advanced Clinical Physiologist Paul Gerry from the Devon and Exeter Hospital kindly joined us in order to conduct the tests. Our participants were Parkinson’s Disease sufferer Heidrun Warton. There are several types of Parkinson’s syndrome including one with no tremor such as happens in Heidrun’ case. Amongst the many other problems, sufferers are prone to mood disturbances such depression (sadness, loss of energy, decreased interest in activities) and anxiety (uncontrollable worry).


Other participants were long-time Essential Tremor sufferers Linda Daubney and Tina Martin. Aurele O’Malley acted as guinea pig.


Right from the start I knew it was going to be an unusual day. There were no circles. However, there was a field of barley in which the first circle of 2023 had appeared on the 28th May. By the 23rd July, over eight weeks later, the field had been harvested, leaving it in stubble. The remains of the circle were lying flat to the ground where the crop had been flattened. It was a very large field and wet underfoot after so much rain. This made walking more difficult, especially carrying all our equipment. We had been given the approximate site of the circle, which otherwise we would never have found except by a stroke of extraordinary good luck. Just imagine standing at the edge of a large field of stubble, a field so large that we could not see the far edge looking towards the distant horizon.

It was like searching for a needle in a haystack; trying to locate a flattened circle somewhere. It was below the height of the stubble, so impossible to see except from close to. All you could see would be the short stalks of the crop.


Aurele nimbly went ahead across the stubble and found the tramline that would take us straight into the flattened circle.

This is not completely new territory as in 2014 and 2018, we conducted our tests in circles that the farmer had mown out. Admittedly they were only a few days old and not like the one at Broad Hinton which was over eight weeks old. My hopes were not high. The results we had had from the tests conducted in 2014 https://cropcirclephotographs.co.uk/lucy-pringle-article-puzzles-a-plenty/
and 2018
were quite remarkable.

Geometer Michael Glickman (sadly no longer with us) sent me an email which reads as follows: ‘I have been drawing the circles now for nearly thirty years and I was astonished by the skill and precision embodied in Martinsell Hill. It is, in my view, one of the top ten (maybe five!) formations we have received. But perhaps I am prejudiced!

It contains 28 pentagrams and 140 precisely formed isosceles triangles, each with a prime angle of 36 degrees which automatically generates the golden section.

Any suggestion that this meticulous and majestic crop formation might be man-made is bizarre to the point of lunacy.

2023 Results

Sadly the 2023 results apart from the dramatic improvement in Tina Martin’s handwriting were not remarkable. Maybe it was too old?

Our research is centred around conducting tests relating to the temporary relief of Parkinson’s disease. It has been found that in Parkinsons sufferers, if the level of brain activity is raised to the gamma level of brain activity 30-100Hz it can inhibit dyskinesia (stop or reduce the tremor). The gamma wave originates in the thalamus and moves from the back of the brain to the front and back again 40 times per second in a rapid “full sweep” action. This makes the gamma state one of peak mental and physical performance. Gamma is the brainwave state of being ‘in the zone.' Gamma brain waves are associated with the “feeling of blessings” reported by experienced meditators.

Paul Gerry wrote: ‘Just a short note to show you a few graphs showing brain waves over time (attached). The left column is the beforehand, middle in the circle and right afterwards. Top graphs are the alpha frequencies (related to relaxed mind) and lower the gamma.

'I think you can see the steady increase in gamma during the time inside the circle which reduces afterwards.

This initial possible interpretation of the brain activity tests showing the increase in gamma were on reflection not important.

Paul Gerry writes ‘I have spent several hours analysing the brain waves, heart beat, eye movements and the tremor recordings.

So far I can’t find any significant changes in the three recordings I took of each person.

The initial gamma frequency change I am afraid to say is likely to be just muscle tension.

I have been in touch with the MD of the company who makes the equipment and he says he will join the before/in/after recordings together so I can view them continuously to look for variations.

I am attaching Paul’s full report herewith. It is quite lengthy, so you may want to skip it.




  • BVP – Blood volume pulse
  • ECG -Electrocardiograph (heart beat)
  • EEG - Electroencephalograph (brain wave)
  • EOG – Electro-oculograph (eye movements)
  • HRV – (Heart rate variability)
  • PD – Parkinson’s Disease
  • PSP - Progressive Supranuclear Palsy


It has been reported that being in a crop circle can -

  1. Give a feeling of wellbeing
  2. Alleviate symptoms of some conditions, especially Parkinson’s disease.
  3. Reduce the amount of hand tremor in subjects suffering from essential tremor and other pathologies.
  • 1. Environmental wellbeing refers to the mental, physiological and emotional states of people passing through certain places. In this context, wellbeing must be measurable and to some extent, susceptible to external influence within short time-spans. The Electroencephalograph (EEG) is an immediate representation of this concept. The variability of the time between each heart beat (Heart Rate Variability HRV) also is an indicator of physical and mental health.
  • 2. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder resulting from a loss of dopaminergic neurons. Recent advances in technology have enabled higher brainwave frequencies to be recorded, such 30 cycles per second and above (gamma-band activity GBA). These have correlation to such disorders as PD. The GBA has been shown to be related to PD binding of sensory integration. Also smooth eye movements can be impaired due to a condition called PSP. Therefore measurements of the Gamma brainwave frequency and eye movements could indicate degree of effect from PD .
  • 3. Using an app on the mobile that was developed for self monitoring tremor in Parkinson’s patients.


To record the various physiological signals and compare before and after being in the circle.

  1. States of mind- “wellbeing”.
  2. Parkinson’s Disease.
  3. Tremor

The equipment produced by Vilistus (www.vilistus.com) is ideal for recording suitable parameters. (Illustrated in graph below)

EEG (brainwave frequencies from right and left hemispheres) – looking at the various frequency


EOG (eye movements) Measurement of Ocular motility i.e. hypometric saccades in PD.

HRV (Heart Rate Variability) – Using a BVP sensor, HRV is a key indicator of physiological resiliency and ability to adapt effectively to stress and environmental demands.

Recording in the crop circle

Although the corn had been harvested it was felt there was a certain warmth and welcoming in the circle.

Electrodes were applied to the two sides of the head in specific places called T3, O2 and T3, O1 (according to the “10-20 system” with a conducting paste after the scalp was rubbed with a skin prep to reduce the electrical impedances.

      Below: The raw traces being viewed and stored on the equipment

above: top two traces are the EEG from right and left hemisphere

third trace EOG

bottom pulse (heart rate)


There were two subjects, one with a diagnosis of PD and a “control”.

Recordings of the EEG and BVP along with EOG on the PD subject while she performed lateral eye movements to command were obtained, before in a study room, inside the crop circle and afterward outside the field.


EOG (Lateral eye movements) in the Parkinson’s subject

The lateral eye movements were very similar apart from more facial muscle interference inside the circle. There was no sign of PSP so it could not be used to monitor any improvement.

Brain activity (EEG)

The EEG is an accurate measurement of the physiological state of the brain.

The alpha frequencies (8 – 13 waves or cycles a second), relates to level of relaxation while theta (5 – 7 c/s) is closer to mindfulness and a meditative state. Gamma oscillations are thought to be related to deep brain structures and even self-healing mechanisms.

The following graphs are the three recording sessions (length approx. 10 minutes before, five minutes inside and five minutes after).


A slight increase of amplitude in the centre of this graph is seen during the time in the circle, suggesting deep relaxation, almost a meditative state.

Alpha frequency

The frequency fluctuates more during and after time in the circle relating to an altered mental state, alternating perhaps between reality and inner awareness of thoughts?

Parkinson’s Subject

Along with the fluctuations of the frequency the alpha amplitude slowly increases during the time in the circle, possibly due to being at peace.


It would certainly appear that there is an increase in Gamma frequencies inside and after being in the circle. Could this be evidence of the circle having a healing effect?

Similar to the frequency graph, Gamma increases in amplitude once the subject is in the circle.


Interestingly the Gamma frequencies in the Parkinson’s subject show increase after she was in the circle.

The Gamma amplitude decreases during time in the circle but increases again afterwards. This needs further investigation.

Tremor readings from Essential tremor sufferer

The interesting feature of the tremor measurements is that the frequency distribution alters showing that the tremor movements become less complex, however the method of measurement needs refining as simply extending the hand is not comparable to a complex task such as writing.


This is perhaps the most striking graph showing significant variation in the heart rate inside the circle and also continuing afterwards.

High HRV is showing proper emotional regulation, decision making and attention. High HRV is illustrating increased parasympathetic activity.


However, with the Parkinson’s subject, the HRV decreases.

This could be showing a sympathovagal imbalance – illustrating both sympathetic and vagal activities are decreased. Definitely more research is required.

Overall Conclusions

Tremor measurements using smartphone sensors were not suitable for recording a tremor that alters with intension.

Eye movements (EOG) are not always appropriate for assessing PD changes.

EEG amplitude is a sensitive index of the state of the mind, especially the theta, alpha and gamma bands.

Interbeat variability in the heart rate is the best way to monitor both physiological and mental changes.

Further studies of EEG and HRV are recommended.

My great thanks to neuroscientist Paul Gerry for continuing to conduct and devote his valuable time to record these important tests.

I find it interesting that both Heidron and Tina showed a marked difference after being in the circle.

Turn on the light

It is a little time since I last wrote to you; Time is such a very difficult thing to quantify. I have a feeling that I may well have sent you the Mayan system of Time already? I hope not? The Mayans have an interesting belief that there is no such time as the present. It just does not exist. They recognise the past which is in front of them because they know about it and can thus 'see' it. The future is behind them because they cannot 'see' it. It is still to come and they don't know anything about what it will bring. Once the future arrives they know about it and then they can 'see' it, it is before them and it immediately becomes the past.

It may seem quite hard to comprehend initially but on consideration I can see that it is the philosophy of living in the present, something so many of us are encouraged to do and learning from the past as you can ‘see it’. Is planning the ‘unseen’ future part of the present? We have many such conundrums in our lives but few as serious and enormous as the world is facing today. It seems that in whichever direction we turn, the problems are there to a greater or lesser degree. There was a time when astrology was given the same scientific status as astronomy. Then the movements and positioning of the planets were as important and relevant to the lives and well-being or otherwise of a nation, just as they are today.

I was struck by the remarkable gesture made by an elderly woman, Yocheved Lifshitz (85) by her shaking the hand of the gun carrying Hamas fighter, one of many holding the kidnapped Israelis captive. It was in itself a simple gesture but it brought to mind the Moon landing in December 2012 when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and when walking on the surface of the lunar landscape, made his famous announcement and was quoted as saying ‘That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’

That quotation is now engrained in stone, ever to be remembered. A small step it may have been but the consequences were enormous. The outstretched hand of friendship to her captor by Yocheved Lifshitz is of no less importance, in courage, her love for peace and humanity. A simple gesture maybe, but the meaning behind it was also enormous, hopefully far reaching. We are all human beings, why don’t we wake up to that fact and realise that far more can be achieved through love, compassion and understanding of humanity as a whole, than war, wreaking destruction, bloodshed and suffering. She saw her captor as a man, a fellow human being. She showed us how to FORGIVE. Is it too much to hope that her instinctive action may have a ‘ripple’ effect.

As we finally bid farewell to Summer, we welcome autumn and its abundance. We are enjoying a wonderful kaleidoscope of colours as the leaves of the trees change colours; the brilliant reds of the acers brightening up the landscape; the subtle yellow/oranges of the beeches and the purples of the copper beeches and many others. As we walk through the woods we are walking on a carpet of many hues. We hear the rustling of the squirrels busy collecting their store of nuts to hide away in preparation for the long winter months ahead; other small animals are also busy as are the birds. This a time of gathering; with an innate knowledge deep within them of scarce times to come.

Halloween is also here; googlies, ghosties, witches and creepy sounds and things that make one jump.

So what is the history behind this strange event? Wikipedia tells us that ‘The Halloween holiday has its roots in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced “SAH-win”), a pagan religious celebration to welcome the harvest at the end of summer, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.’ ‘To ward off evil spirits from their households, the Celts were known to set carved pumpkins (or turnips) in front of their doors. If they went out at night they wore costumes so that if they encountered an evil spirit they would be mistaken for an evil spirit themselves and thus be protected from evil and trouble.’ There was a more modern Christian history to this event called 'Souling`. Religious souls would visit houses to pray for the souls of the people. Small gifts would be given in return.

Sonya Julia, one of the lovely people who joined me on my Crop Circle and Stonehenge tour this summer, sent me and allowed me to share with you, some glorious photographs taken when she and her sister Sue and family were walking along the Ridgeway past the Uffington White Horse and on to Great Coxwell Medieval Tithe Barn in Oxfordshire. Some of the pictures show the Giants Footsteps rolling away in the distance. The famous Ridgeway runs from Avebury,Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Hertfordshire, and a distance of 87 miles (139km)

In my next letter, I will tell you about my annual Crop Circle Scientific Research day and its unexpected results.

Trying to Catch Up 2022

O dear, O dear, what has happened to the year? I do not seem to have quite caught up with it yet. So far, it seems to have been a year of chunks of time, all different, some being more demanding than others. I don’t seem to be able to quite put my finger on it exactly, but, what does stand out to me is the fluctuation and change that has been going on, not just globally but in my life and the lives of others with whom I discuss these things.

Certainly if we look all over the world we see these quite unexpected new changes. Change seems to be the dominant factor in almost everywhere you choose to look. I know it is hard to be optimistic, but strangely I am. I see a new world coming in, taking time to readjust itself, but ultimately wholesome and beneficial. I know, and acutely aware of all the terrible suffering that so many people in distant lands and here at home are going through but rather similar to times past, change has brought about new order and awareness of benefitting from experience.

I am going to move on and take you with me into the fields to see what has been happening in these green and verdant pastures this summer. Not much to be perfectly honest but we have had some special ones.

We have had precisely fourteen formations including one in France. Is there a reason behind this, has the phenomenon also been affected by change?

Over the years, it has remained steadfast and resolute and no matter how much people have scoffed, it continues to grace our fields (much to most farmers’ dismay). Sometimes I do ask myself, is this a finite or infinite phenomenon - who knows and maybe this is one of the joys as it teases us each year, rather like the swallows –when will the circles arrive? Incidentally, I was not the only one who saw worryingly few swallows or swifts this year. One of the reasons could be the increase in kites and other birds of prey (raptors) who might have caught them on the wing in their flight path before they had arrived safely.

The first circle to be welcomed joyously was at Little Down, near Hippenscombe, Wiltshire. Reported 22nd May and was in Barley and measured c: 150 feet (46m) overall. Its sharp and concise geometry consisted of a saw-form motif containing a sun and four planet motif, all contained within an octagon.

In between the arrival of more circles and one in France at Saint Denis en Bugey, Ain, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. France. Reported 30th May, I took two happy tours, the first one at the end of July. We were fortunate as the first circle at Etchilhampton had just arrived and we were most grateful for the kind farmer’s permission allowing us to go in. Circles have appeared many times on his land and like generous farmer James Hussey, he grants people permission to enter. It was a bakingly hot day that day but there was an easy entrance downhill and along a short way and into the circle. Just as we had been driving up to park our cars, I passed a car and sitting inside there was a man who I thought I recognised. When we entered the circle, there was this same man lying meditating in one of the circles.

A little later he came through to the circle in which we were, and yes, it was Brian. I had first met Brian at the Glastonbury Symposium in 2005 and he had told me a strange story. I asked to retell this story to my group.

In 2004 on August 3rd, there had been the most intriguing circle, which we called the Mayan Calendar. It was perfect in every way, right down to the detail of the five missing days of the Haab calendar. Brian and his family are New Born Christians and had the most extraordinary story to tell. On the first night, the outline of the formation was drawn up by a young man who had called in at the Barge Pub asking if anyone would help him make a circle opposite Silbury Hill that night. He was asked if he had the farmer’s permission and on replying `No’, no one agreed to go with him. The following day there was a rudimentary design in the field.
However, on the 6th August, Brian and his family went up the slope to sit in the circle; it was a lovely warm summer’s evening. As they were sitting there, men came in with their gear and as Brian described ‘they moved as fast as a bus’. If you look at this picture, not only does it contain quite astonishing detail as I described above, but how could men moving ‘as fast as a bus’ possibly produce such extraordinary fine, precise and perfect workmanship?

Shortly after Brian had told me his story my brain started whirling. I could not doubt Brian in any way, yet how had people moving at such speed could have made this immaculate circle. There had to be an answer. For some time I had been having a nagging thought, something I didn’t want to put into words. Could there be an unknown, hidden hand guiding the hoaxers on certain occasions?? On reflection, that seemed the only explanation. I have talked to many other `old timers` and they too have come to the same opinion. A gradual realisation that there was no other explanation. An Intelligence.

Opposite Silbury Hill, Nr Marlborough, Wiltshire. 3rd August 2004. The Mayan Calendar.

Brian is a spiritual man with a fine sense of humour and he was a great addition to our group as we swapped stories and experiences. Before leaving we joined hands in a circle and chanted. It seemed a proper thing to do as we gave thanks to the circle and the welcome it had given us.

Alexia Willen sent me this report:

My experience in the first Crop Circle.
I felt very tired.
Wanted to sleep.
Felt a feeling of letting go.

Another report from the Mayan Calendar circle reached me that year from Jennifer Denning. I will put this at the end of my letter.

After a delicious lunch at the Honey Street café, sitting outside at a long table in the tent. We drove to Barbury Castle where the magical Pi formation appeared in 2008.

The circle was in the same as the Pi formation but this circle was quite different - but of equal beauty. There is a public path through that field giving easy access to the circle which lay adjacent to the path.

To finish the day we all went to a magical private entry evening visit to Stonehenge. Always, no matter how many times one has visited the stones, as they come into view and the closer you get to them until you enter, gives one a sense of gradually increasing excitement and wonder. These majestic megaliths stand majestic and proud, reigning over the surrounding countryside. We had a most excellent guide who was just as enthusiastic as we were as she gave us one fascinating and interesting fact one after the other.

This time I had a strange experience, as having had the privilege of visiting Stonehenge many times, sometimes the hour we have inside has seemed quite long for one reason or another, for instance if it is cold etc, but this time, it seems to fly by and I couldn’t believe our hour was up when told. Walking back with Paul Stillwell, one of the group, he turned to me and said: ‘I can't believe how quickly the time went inside Stonehenge! It felt like 1 minute rather than 1 hour.

Happy smiles all round. What a perfect happy way to end the day.

For the second tour on the 2nd August, due to the hot weather, many circles had been harvested including the formation at Etchilhampton we had visited on the first tour so we visited the Barbury Castle circle which thankfully was still there and quite remarkably undamaged.

After another delicious lunch at the Honey Street Café and visiting the quite excellent Crop Circle Exhibition, we went up to West Kennet Long Barrow. One of the very oldest Long Barrows in the country and full of intriguing history. This is one of my most favourite places. It is strategically situated so that at certain times of year, at either sunrise or sunset the sun sets or rises behind sacred sites in this sacred landscape. Silbury Hill, East Kennet Long Barrow, Waden Hill and Windmill Hill.

When first built, West Kennet Long Barrow, being made of chalk, it gleamed white, as did Silbury Hill, built later. They were places of importance and dominance in the landscape.

Two more people kindly sent me reports of their experiences this summer .

Gemma Jones sent me this lovely report after visiting the Micheldever circle.

“Recently I was blessed to visit a crop circle ️

I went to work out on the road with my partner for the day and had learned about the crop circle 2 days before. We knew we would be near it so left it open that we will visit if it’s meant to be.

We were a little against the time so we decided to head home but the road we needed to go on was closed, the road we had to take…..the one with the crop circle.

We also made it home in time to collect my daughter.

The energy was so powerful and I could hear Sirius high council calling within the space and light language moving through me.

As we left the circle all of a sudden my entire body felt heavy. The only other time I’d felt this was after getting out of a swimming pool when I was pregnant I felt like I’d come back into a denser space for sure.

There happened to be two other people there, one man and one woman plus my partner and I. We all sat in the centre of the circle together and tuned in to the frequency, the sound of the traffic disappeared and I felt waves of energy moving up and down through me. The four of us - the two masculine and two feminine felt so relevant to the pattern of the circle. Balance. Duality blending. New Earth emerging. Sirius Gateway opening.

This really was a magical experience.'

Paul Stillwell wrote telling me of his experience in the Pilgrim’s Trail circle near Winchester:

“I went to the one near Winchester, I think it was named the 'Om' formation, as some people interpreted the laid and unlaid circles to be binary code for Om.

I knew which field it was in but that was all the info I had.
I came off the M3 at J10 and turned East onto Morestead Rd. Just after a bend in the road there was a layby with metal farm gates on either side of the road.
The crop circle was nowhere to be seen.
But, by divine intervention, there was a man in the layby with a drone camera!
He flew it up in the air and found exactly where it was and gave me instructions to find it.
I went on ahead while he was attending to his drone.

I climbed over the gate on the right hand side of the road and walked along the edge of the field until I reached an old metal water tower. From here there was a tramline leading directly into the field, this is the path I needed.

But even walking along it, the crop circle still wasn't visible until I was about 10 yards away from it.

I stopped and connected with the energies of the crop circle.
As I entered I became overwhelmed with a feeling of love and inner warmth, it almost brought a tear to my eye.
A very loving, feminine warmth.

The crop circle was beautifully crafted, pristine circles and the centre circle was laid with a basket weave.
I walked around every circle in the formation. Some of them had exciting energy, some had gentle loving energy, and some had calm, peaceful energy.

I stayed for a while, basking in the sun and the loving energies of the formation.
When I left I realised I had been there for 2 hours.
A really wonderful day.'

Most regrettably our scientific research day did not take place due to medical reasons.

For anyone who would like to read the story of Jennifer Denning, I have listed it below.

I am going to give a snapshot view of the other circles that appeared this summer.

Jennifer Denning’s story

Dear Lucy, as promised, and at your request, when we met at the CSS in July I am now sending you the account of the healing I received in 2004 after visiting the Mayan formation.
Extract from my diary for 2004/2005
Second visit to crop formations.

The week before I had been given a picture taken from a newspaper of an enormous crop formation that had appeared over two nights in a field in front of Silbury Hill. We set out to find it, and after a few synchronistic happenings were directed to a large field near Silbury Hill. This was the now famous Mayan Clock formation, which could not be seen from the road, but only after you had climbed up for about a quarter of a mile, to the crest of a large field. And there it was!! What a marvellous awe-inspiring image, which for myself and my son has proved to be both a revelation and vibration raising experience – and I believe was the start of the experiences to come later.

There was a downside to our visit to this formation. We both experienced headaches on the way home, and felt extremely tired. I fell asleep easily, but was awoken at 1.am with terrible pains down the left side of my body. It felt as if my body was contorted with cramp, and the pain in my left thigh drew my leg backwards and upwards quite violently and then spread downwards to my left foot and upwards into the groin and hip area. The pain was intense and continuous, and nothing I did helped to alleviate it. I could not move from the bed, and then a rigor set in, my teeth were chattering, and I shook uncontrollably for about ten minutes. Just as my husband was about to dial 999, it stopped – as suddenly as a light switch being turned off. The next day I felt totally drained, exhausted, and nauseous, but not bruised in any way as one usually does from cramp.

I called my son Jonathan about 11.am and he told me that he had experienced a bad night also, with lots of joint pains, but fortunately not so severe, and that both the children were fine.

A few days later I brought up the photographs taken on that day on my computer. I discovered that in two of the photos taken in the Mayan formation by my son Jon, there is a very bright light, which appeared to be moving across me, and another at the foot of the photo. They are roughly square in shape and have the appearance of a letter N on its side. It was 6.30pm in the evening and the light was behind me so they were obviously not a reflection – we were really intrigued, and I wrote to one of the crop circle organisers and asked their opinion. They did not reply, but I have since discovered that this formation has caused a lot of controversy within the crop circle community, so perhaps they did not wish to comment.

One of the most amazing things after this experience was the wonderful feeling of well being and contentment that gradually spread through my being, and the ensuing happiness, which is still with me.
The most amazing thing is that I have also experienced a spontaneous healing of the eye problem that I had been suffering from. Macular degeneration had been diagnosed after I started having vision problems in late 2003. Vision from my right eye was difficult, as I had distorted vision with all straight lines appearing wavy. This made reading difficult, and I was told on my last visit to the specialist in the autumn that it was progressive and I would probably need an operation. I was offered an operation at the Heath Hospital in Cardiff, which could take place before Christmas. After considering the verdict something made me ask if I could delay this and make another decision in January 2005 when I had my next appointment. This was agreed to reluctantly by the eye specialist, with instructions that if my sight worsened I was to come back to the hospital immediately.

However, one morning in early October I looked out the bedroom window thinking what a lovely day it was, and then suddenly realised that my eyesight was normal!!– no wavy lines! What a wonderful gift.

(February 2005: Since writing this I have seen my eye specialist at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, and he could see for himself the improvement in my vision. He said that he was surprised and that medically ‘I was a great rarity’. Proof if more were needed that something happened that day in Wiltshire).

Further Note: June 2005 Had an eye test at my usual optician’s and she told me that my reading vision has also improved.
In July 2005 I again attended the Crop Circle Symposium, which is when I spoke to you Lucy and showed you the photos of the beautiful orbs that have been appearing in my photos, and also spoke about the healing of my eye problem..
You asked me to contact you after seeing the eye specialist in September, hence this letter. I have my
appointment letter if you wish to see it.

September 2005: Have seen an eye specialist again at the RGH and once again he could not account for the improvement in my sight. The next appointment will now be in eight months time, which he said is just to monitor the situation. My sight is still fine, and everyday I am aware of the wonderful gift that I have been given.
I hope my experience will prove useful to you in your research, I do strongly believe that the energy held in these formations can be transformational.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any further information. I have completed your online form also, but needed to send you a more complete account than the form asks for.
Very Best Wishes,
Jennifer Denning.

(Subsequently I received the promised report the optician gave Jennifer. Perfect eyesight. Whether this was a result of visiting the Mayan crop circle can never be proved. What matters is that Jennifer’s eye was completely cured and she believed it was. L.P.)

I wonder what 2023 will bring us in the fields; there is no doubt that the circles are appearing later and later, leaving us with bated breath –have they deserted us or will we be blessed once these majestic mind teasing and treasured events? Only time will tell.

As always my most grateful thanks, as always, goes to the farmers who have allowed us to enter their fields and enjoy and research the crop circles, in particular James Hussey who is outstanding in his welcome. However, I do understand the reaction of most of the farmers who harvest them on arrival as I regret to say that many people do not stop to think or understand that the fields in which these circles appear belong to the farmers and the crops are their livelihood.

The Great Turning

Life is hotting up in the barley and wheat fields so I am going to write a short letter just to keep you up to date. The barley fields were the first to grace the circles; it is a 100 day crop from the time it is sown to the time it is harvested as a general rule. Wheat overlaps the barley around the beginning of July and continues until harvest time which is dependent on the weather between now and reaping.

Since last writing I have an interesting observation from mathematician Nick Kollerstrom in relation to the beautiful circle at Potterne Hill, Nr Devizes, Wiltshire on the 7th June 2023. It was in barley and measured 245 feet (45m) in diameter.

7th June 2023 ~ near Devizes

A 36-fold division of a perfect circle with no centre has appeared, i.e. it is divided at equal ten-degree intervals. That involves dividing a circle by nine to start with, and I doubt if any of us could manage that – even with access to the centre!

I suggest that this is what we’ve all been looking for all these years – firm, concrete proof that a formation is not man-made. In the past such arguments have depended upon a formation being huge, very complex etc., which was fair enough. However this is different. This time it’s a logical impossibility. If any croppie group had some money they could safely offer a substantial reward – to be paid to anyone who could duplicate this formation, either on a sheet of paper or in a field at night! Just make an exact circle and divide it into 36 without touching the centre – simple, isn’t it …?

We see petals around the outside, each made from two arcs, one per ten degrees, in other words there are 72 arcs forming the petals around the perimeter. Now 72 is quite a cosmic number, the number of precession: the stars move one degree every 72 years. So maybe this.`

This being once in a lifetime event, the others mathematically pale into less significance but were of interest nevertheless.

Next in line came on the 11th and 18th June were:

I would like to tell you about a new crop circle book that has taken twenty four years to complete.

The Great Turning , Crop Circles and their Message to Humanity, is the work of Michael Green 1931-2018 ( RIBA, FSA) He was an archaeologist, architectural historian, former Inspector of Ancient Monuments with English Heritage. Also oversaw the Summer Solstice events at Stonehenge. He excavated the Roman site of Godmanchester and Whitehall Palace London. He listed parts of London as well as contributing to the saving of Covent Garden.

Yet in this was his professional life, but he was psychic and a dowser, with a deep intuitive knowledge of the Ancient Timeless Wisdom.

I have known Michael since before the Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS) was set up by Michael Green and Ralph Noyes in Cambridgeshire, at Easter 1990. I was honoured to be one of the Founder members. It was a time of wild speculation and bogus stories relating to the crop circles, and an academic body of various minds and specialties was needed. It was a fascinating, mixed and wonderful assembly and scientific research and investigation was started in earnest.

Over the years scientists from all over the world worked with the Society conducting interesting and exciting results.

The Great Turning is a long awaited book, illustrated throughout. It is a learned masterpiece and will go among the great if not the greatest body of work on the subject. Without a doubt it is the most superb reference book ever produced. With Green’s background he explored all the diverse connections, some obvious and some more obscure connections that link the crop circles with such subjects as theosophy, geometry, archaeology, anthropology, music and number. I am sure it will stand the test of time and people will recognise its importance to this elusive subject.

Superbly edited by Mary Coales, The Great Turning is available published by: The Squeeze Press (imprint of Wooden Books) ISBN 9781906069278 £19.95

Circle Tours (https://cropcirclephotographs.co.uk/crop-circle-tours-2023/)

There have been a few unavoidable crop circle cancellations on the 27 July and 2nd August crop circle tours, so if anyone would like to jump in, please get in touch (https://cropcirclephotographs.co.uk/contact-lucy-pringle/) .


Sadly helicopter flights are exorbitantly expensive and in order to keep in the air and continue with my important research I ask if you could give as generously as possible. Donations can be made here  I would be so grateful for your help.

Many have suggested using drones or radio controlled aircraft to reduce the expenses and challenges of flying for crop circle photography. After thorough investigation and consultation with an expert, I discovered the following.

Suggestions included purchasing a DJI Phantom with a GoPro Hero 3 camera (£1000 - £1500) and joining an RC club for flying tuition. A basic understanding of electronics is necessary for maintenance, which involves visual inspections, part removal, fatigue checks, and safety assessments. A drone's batteries also require specialised care and maintenance.

Contrary to popular belief, flying drones is not easy, as handling difficulties and equipment failures can occur. Commercial licensing and the risk of accidents with planes also pose concerns.

A two-person team is recommended, with one acting as the pilot and the other as a spotter for safety. Additionally, access to inaccessible areas and equipment transportation would be challenging, perhaps requiring a 4x4 vehicle. Despite considering all the information and associated problems, I must accept that this method is beyond my technical expertise and logistical capabilities.

The Circles Are Here!

This is a very short letter to bring you up to date with the latest circles and to let you know about the latest date for booking tickets for entry into Stonehenge

On the 4th June an old style pictogram was found at Barn Field, near Winterbourne Bassett, Wiltshire.

First Crop Circle 2023 – May 2023

I’d been holding my breath, hoping the circles had not deserted us, so I write in haste to tell you about the first crop circle of 2023. It appeared on Sunday 28th May at Broad Hinton, near Winterbourne Bassett. It consists of a circular ‘ring’ containing a propeller-like formation with six scimitar shaped 'blades'.

It lies amidst a sacred landscape, with the famous Hackpen White Horse and Ridgeway to the north (on the horizon) and Winterbourne Bassett marginally to the west.

Image © 2023 StonehengeDronescapesPhotography

Many times, in previous letters, I have written about the legend and history of the chalk white horse. We are told that ‘The Hackpen Horse was cut to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. Although little is known about the origins of the horse it is believed to have been cut by Henry Eatwell, parish clerk of Broad Hinton and local publican.

The horse measures 90ft by 90ft and is best viewed from the A361 between Avebury and Swindon at Broad Hinton.’

Moving on to Winterbourne Bassett, many are the times that I have turned left off the A361 and noticed the standing stone close by on my left.

Once part of a stone circle, only six stones remain, the stone in the photograph being half-standing while the others lie half-covered.

The following link provides a more fascinating history relating to this ancient stone circle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winterbourne_Bassett_Stone_Circle

Coronation Memories – May 2023

The coronation of King Charles will stay ingrained in my mind for many years to come. Also the crowning of Queen Camilla.

The Coronation was a triumph - what a spectacle! The pomp, pageantry and everything that goes with it was just magnificent. It all worked like clockwork, having taken months of preparation and practice. Not a single thing out of order, right down to the finest and smallest detail. The nine thousand servicemen from the Army, Navy, Air Force and many other service contingents all marching in step. It was a veritable sight to behold.

Most impressive after the service, was when the Colonel in Command of the Blues and Royal regiment gave the word to move. This was passed down the line, and the whole mass of service men and women moved forward as one.

It gladdened me that Charles kept the Coronation Service largely traditional, after all it has been going for over a thousand years right back to William the Conqueror. The Coronation throne on which Charles sat to be anointed and crowned was first used by Edward III, who reigned from 1307-1327. Charles is the 40th monarch to be crowned in Westminster Abbey, which was built during the reign of Henry III.

Charles as King, seems to act as the stepping stone between the ancient and modern. He is forward thinking and doesn't have a racist bone in his body. He is knowledgeable about many religions and respects their followers. He helps the young and deprived through the Prince's Trust, and is a source of encouragement and care for all. This was illustrated by the diverse selection of people who were invited to his Coronation. Splendid beyond words.

There were several special and really important parts of the service. The Oath, the Anointing, and the Enthronement.

The Anointing

The oil was made from olives harvested from two groves - one on the Mount of Olives at the Monastery of Mary Magdalene, and from the Monastery of the Ascension. The Monastery of Mary Magdalene is the burial place of His Majesty’s grandmother, Princess Alice of Greece.
'The Coronation oil is based on the oil used at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the formula of which has been used for hundreds of years. It will also be used for the anointing of Her Majesty The Queen Consort.'

'The Chrism oil - as it is called - has been consecrated in Jerusalem in a special ceremony at The Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

'It was made using olives harvested from two groves on the Mount of Olives, at the Monastery of Mary Magdalene - the burial place of Charles' grandmother, Princess Alice of Greece - and the Monastery of the Ascension.

`The olives were pressed just outside Bethlehem and perfumed with sesame, rose, jasmine, cinnamon, neroli, benzoin and amber, according to the Royal Family's website.

`The Archbishop of Canterbury said the oil "reflects The King’s personal family connection" with Jerusalem and "demonstrates the deep historic link between the coronation, the Bible and the Holy Land."

The Homage

I found it particularly moving when Prince William knelt, swore allegiance, and kissed his father, the King.

Prince William, the Duke of Wales and the Duchess of Wales must have been thinking and watching the cathedral service with huge interest, knowing the time will come, when they too will go through the same procedure.

I believe that Charles hit just the right note by continuing with tradition yet introducing the language of the time in which we live. So very different to when his mother, our beloved Queen Elizabeth II, went through a really punishingly long and traditional enthronement and coronation ceremony.

The fact that it rained did not diminish the occasion, and the thousands of people congregating from all corners of the globe, were not going anywhere. Many had camped out, arriving several days previously, in order to secure the prime positions along the Mall or Whitehall, bringing celebratory provisions and sitting and sleeping arrangements with them!

I remember it was raining the day Queen Elizabeth II was crowned, and her reign was one of the most successful and wonderful in history, so I have every hope and indeed confidence that Charles’ will also be great also.

Schedule of events for the coronation of Britain's King Charles

The coronation of King Charles III and his wife Camilla as queen on Saturday, May 6, was the centrepiece of a weekend of events to mark the occasion.

I am now taking you to the 2023 crop circle season as we lie in wait wondering what wonders we will be given to behold and enjoy. As the years have progressed it appears that the circles are now reluctant to appear and do not reveal themselves until late May or even June. We have had an unseasonably wet and cold spring and the crops are only just beginning to reach the height necessary to receive a crop circle. If the crop is too short the circle will disappear quickly as it would not have the weight of the fallen crop to keep it down; thus we are ever mindful of the weather’s influence, not just for the start of the season but also for when the ripened wheat or barley (barley is reaped earlier that wheat) crop is ready for the farmers to cut and harvest their fields.

The early ones have nearly been in oil seed rape (canola) and I am going to show you some we have had in years gone by taken from one of my April 2022 letters.

It has arrived - the first crop circle of 2022 at Enmill Barn, near Crabwood, Winchester, Hampshire. Reported 24th April 2022
Oil Seed Rape (Canola) 85 feet (25.9m) overall.
At this time of year the circle presents itself in the startlingly vibrant yellow flowered crop, oil seed rape (canola), much used for cooking and in health products.

The term "rape" derives from the Latin word for turnip, rapa or rapum, cognate with the Greek word rhapys. Wikipedia tells us that 'Crops from the genus Brassica, including rapeseed, were among the earliest plants to be widely cultivated by mankind as early as 10,000 years ago. Rapeseed was being cultivated in India as early as 4000 B.C. and it spread to China and Japan 2000 years ago.'

'One of the most versatile of all plants, oil seed rape is also used as diesel fuel, either as biodiesel in heated fuel systems, or blended with petroleum distillates for powering motor vehicles. Biodiesel may be used in pure form in newer engines without engine damage and is frequently combined with fossil-fuels. Historically it was used in limited quantities due to high levels of erucic acid. Processing of rapeseed for oil production produces rapeseed meal as a by-product. This by-product is a high-protein animal feed - competitive with soybean. The feed is employed mostly for cattle feeding, but is also used for pigs and poultry. However, natural rapeseed oil contains 50% erucic acid and high levels of glucosinolates that significantly lowers the nutritional value of rapeseed press cakes for animal feed.'

Oil seed rape flower

The flowers have a pungent smell and if you walk through it, you will find it is hard to get the pollen off your hair or clothes. As regards detective work, it is the easiest crop for sussing out the Goodies or Baddies.

In 2010 a most glorious formation arrived during a week-end just below Winton windmill in Wiltshire. It contained the most complex geometry, almost exactly bearing a likeness to Russian born physicist Leonard Euler's equation said to be one of the most complex, and indeed, possibly not fully understood by Euler himself. See diagram below.

Winton Windmill ~ Wiltshire

Top: Base of undamaged stalk.

Bottom: Root of undamaged stalk twisted by the `force`

'Having woken at 4am one morning and unable to get back to sleep I decided to drive down to Wiltshire and see the formation for myself. It had been raining heavily overnight and despite having stopped by the time I arrived, I had forgotten how much water the yellow petals retain. The crop stood about 5 ft tall and in no time at all I was drenched from head to toe and my Wellington boots were full of water that had trickled relentlessly downwards. In addition I had forgotten to bring my aerial photograph and as the formation could not be seen from the ground - only from the air or the windmill and this had been closed the week-end the formation appeared - I simply could not find it and was getting wetter and wetter. Not surprisingly not many people were happy to answer my early morning mobile telephone calls until Julian Gibsone nobly answered his and gave me the necessary directions. The outer ring was much trampled and did not provide me with the information I needed. However, the lay of the crop was remarkable, lying in a criss-crossing herringbone manner. I made my way inwards to areas that had been untouched and found what I was looking for; an unbroken stem without any cracks above or below. In order to ascertain this properly, it is necessary to dig away the soil from some way down around the stem. Holding my camera with soil covered, wet and slippery hands, I managed to get a photograph. Now soaked to the skin, and hoping that no-one was around, I did a quick strip, discarding first my sweater, replacing it with a jacket that came down to my knees and hid the fact that I had also discarded my jeans. Luckily I did not have to stop for anything on my way home so modesty was preserved! Definitely worth the effort!'

As always I am sending you Pam Gregory’s latest report herewith.

New Moon in Taurus May 19th 2023

Please remember to book your places on my wonderfully exciting crop circle tours. I have to close the booking on the 20th June for the special and magical private evening entry to Stonehenge on the 27th July tour. I fear only those already booked for the Stonehenge visit will be allowed to join me and enter the inner circle of the stones, go right up to them and feel their extraordinary energy radiating out towards you.
