Horton nr Devizes. Reported 9th August 2010.

As soon as Michael heard that a formation had appeared in Horton, very close to his home, he excitedly prepared to go out and see if he could spot it from the road. Sadly though, before he was able to leave the house, we heard news that the farmer had already cut the formation out. How disappointing!

On the fortunate side however, Olivier Morel saved the day once again, as he had discovered the formation on an early morning sortie and managed to get these great shots for all the world to see. Great work Olivier.

    Greetings everyone,
    This is my first visit to the site but most certainly not my last. Much gratitude for your work in the study of this wonderful phenomenon. I’ve seen you guys on various documentaries including Suzanne Taylor’s piece.
    In regards to the farmers who cut out the formations so promptly: What is their motivation for doing so? Is it anger derived from fear of potentially lost crop? Are they paid off? I am not trying to be facetious, I would like someone to actually answer this question. Please.
    Moreover, do you think it possible, if we had someone with deep enough pockets on “our side”, set up a finders sum for the farmers to allow for proper analysis and documentation?

    The Great Pyramid of Giza spring to mind with some kind of cycle revolving around them.

    It would have been great to see some ground shots as the lay of the crop looks interesting from the aerial photos.
