For many years countless thousands of visitors have regarded crop circles as the central part of the Avebury “experience”. The Barge Inn, Honey St has been the must-visit venue for all “croppies”, being right in the centre of the area where many formations appear and catering for all things mysterious. One of its central attractions has been its painted ceiling painted by artist Vince Palmer in 1997, showing Silbury Hill, Avebury, Stonehenge, Barbury Castle,  the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, UFOs, aliens – and of course, crop circles.

The pub has recently changed hands and the new owners intend to paint over the ceiling. Although the heyday of crop circles has passed, many still regard the plan as regrettable and there is a petition to save the ceiling here.
