The Ridgeway, Avebury, Wiltshire
Reported April 14 2009
This first UK Crop formation of 2009 was discovered on the 14th of April and is located close to the Ridgeway and approximately one mile East of the ancient stone circle complex at Avebury.
The formation spans 118ft across the field of immature, 3ft high, Oil-Seed-Rape.
Much of the crop within the design has fully recovered itself to a vertical growing stance. Moderate damage to the still laid plants is well evident and could possibly be attributed to a small number of previous visitors to the glyph.
A small proportion of the laid plants are totally undamaged and continues to grow in a healthy fashion along the ground where it fell during the construction process.
