August 25, 2001 Chilbolton, Hampshire, England - For the past few years, crop formations have appeared in the wheat field near the Chilbolton Observatory in Chilbolton village, south of Andover, Hampshire. The one from August 2000 now seems linked to the August 2001 formations. Last year's was one of England's largest 2000 formations in terms of square footage and appeared next to the Chilbolton government-owned land upon which the radio telescope complex was built in 1965. The facility is sectioned off from the public and is surrounded by a high barbed wire fence. The estimated measurements of the code formation is 200 feet long and 85 feet wide; the estimated face measurements are approximately 160 feet wide and 180 feet long. Both are framed by wheat laid down in almost identical fashion, according to field researcher, Charles Mallett, from Roundway, Wiltshire.
