There have been two unexpected last minute cancellations for the Crop circle tour on 25 July with the optional extra of a wonderful private evening entry into Stonehenge.
In addition, I have one more special private entry Stonehenge ticket for that evening so that makes a total of 3 private entry evening tickets to Stonehenge.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to join me as I expect they might go quite fast.
We have had some really wonderful circles recently including the Hackpen event lying just below the Hackpen chalk White Horse.
If you look closely at the image you will see it appear in 3D!
I am flying tomorrow morning (weather permitting) over a spectacular circle at Cley Hill, near Warminster, Wiltshire, so please keep an eye on my website.
Hackpen is a special place of legend and mystery. There is a well documented report of Faery happenings. These were recorded by John Aubrey and tells of a shepherd who was taken under the hill; the hill at certain phases of the moon, being raised up on pillars. Music was heard and revelry was seen by the shepherd before he returned. It seems he was never quite the same after his visit to the fairies. There seems little doubt that crop circles are linked to hill carvings, ancient monuments, tumuli and faery places.
James Hussey has kindly opened his field for visitors and we are all happy to pay an entrance fee. The money goes towards the charity James set up in memory of his wonderful wife Gill to raise money to equip a breast screening radiotherapy unit to be built on the site at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon, as the closest unit was in Oxford and for Gill and others to have to travel many hours for a daily treatment lasting a few minutes each time over a period of six weeks was altogether too exhausting and draining.
James continued to allow people to enter his fields, charging a fee to visit the circles which went towards the target of £2.9 million having already raised £750,000. This is a really splendid charity worthy of support. The charity, Brighter Futures who are running the appeal told me that to date “we have received support from companies in Swindon such as Sainsbury’s Stratton and TE Connectivity”. Staff at other companies including Corporate Events, Arval, Jury’s Hotel, Nationwide and Santander have all supported the appeal by fundraising for us.
Many schools, nurseries and centres for learning have also adopted us as their chosen charity for the year, as have many other smaller organisations such as churches, local groups and WI’s and Rotary Groups.

This is my most hectic time of the year with Crop Circle tours, the wonderful Glastonbury Symposium and my Scientific Research day plus getting up in the air to take photographs. So very many apologies and please forgive me for such a short letter. I will try and do better next time!
With my love and blessings.
