‘It is absolutely huge – roughly three times the size of most crop patterns and extremely interesting. People have been aghast at the size of it. It is a complete monster.’We are looking into the meaning of it, but at present it just seems to have appeared out of nowhere.Sceptics might suggest that someone in Oxfordshire is trying to muscle in on Wiltshire’s dominance in the crop circle stakes – from April to the September harvest the mystery patterns are believed to bring millions of pounds in tourism to the western county.
