A spectacular crop circle in a wheat field alongside the A272 at Cheesefoot Head is the best of the year, says a Sheet expert.
The pattern is about 250 metres in size and appears to be a labyrinth design, which historically has been used for religious, ritual and magic purposes.
Lucy Pringle, a founder member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies in Sheet, said the mile long endless looping pattern is the "best this year."
She said: "To me its labyrinth design represents our journey through life. I think it's beyond the wit of man to produce something as intricate as this, as its geometric precision is highly accurate. But however it got there, to me it personifies the wonderful spirit of the Olympic Games."
The field, just yards from the A272, belongs to Peveril Bruce, owner of the Matterley Bowl estate, venue of the Boomtown music festival, and there has been speculation about a connection between festival-goers and the circle. The pattern was spotted by a passing lorry driver, whose high cab allowed him to look down into the wheat field to view it.

This one is a great example of what humans are capable of when they put they minds to it.
No microwave beams, no aliens, just a plank, a long tape measure and some pegs is all that's needed here.
Plus a good design helps too!
Notice the outside of the circle? Two planks wide, exactly double the width of the inner links.
You can see the parallel lines down each side of the square too, leading out to the circle's edge.
Great piece of artwork.

To each in his own time.
It matters not when you come around, only that you do.
I just hope that when you do, you are able to do so without getting too embarrased.
As with most Crop Circles, IT MAY be explainable, but they aren't ALL explainable.edit on 15-10-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)edit on 15-10-2012 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
