Sketch of a spaceship creating crop circles sent to the Ministry of Defence circa 1978

There haven’t been many crop circles around Avebury this year due to the poor spring – and those that there have been have been a bit uninspiring. Possibly the latest heatwave will change all that so we thought we’d issue a challenge:

Crop circles always seem to be bisected by “tramlines” – the tracks left by farm machinery – which invariably spoil the look of them. Clearly it’s not beyond the ability of aliens (who can hover  rather than walk) to create a crop circle entirely between the tramlines.

So that’s our challenge to any aliens reading this: we’ll give a massive £10,000 prize to the first alien to produce a crop circle between the lines. Please send us a picture at info@heritageaction.org.uk
