June 4, 2002 Avebury Trusloe, Wiltshire, England - For days prior to Saturday, June 1, rain had been falling hard on the crops in the famous farm county of Wiltshire, England. Then between the night of June 1 and 6 a.m. June 2, something touched young, green, 4-foot-high barley growing in a field near the famous and ancient ring of large sarsen granite stones in Avebury. The farm owner, a Mr. Butler, said he knew the barley was normal the day of June 1, so he was surprised and amazed to find a 180-foot-diameter formation of most intricate design at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning. According to Mr. Butler and a couple of other people who came along, the pattern was in pristine condition. No one could find tracks or other evidence of entry in the wet, rain-soaked mud.On June 2nd, Charles Mallett - new owner with his wife, Frances, of the Silent Circle Cafe in Cherhill not far from Avebury - heard about the new formation and went to see it. Charles has been in dozens of crop patterns and later talked with me by phone about his impressions.
