Having looked up directions to two of the reported crop circles from Barge Inn, we headed out to get a little closer to some alien action.
We entered the coordinates for the first location and found ourselves taken to the middle of a low-fenced field of wheat. We jumped it and after a few minutes of searching through the crop we came upon our proposed alien abnormality. I'm not sure if I was being mainly fed by your vicarious enthusiasm, but I could certainly feel a strong energy in the air. There was the middle circle with a sort of wave of larger rings moving outward. I asked for a few moments and just sat there soaking up the potential significance of the phenomenon and musing on how many UFO sightings and Crop-Circle reporting there have been and how endless the alien mystery is
The second set of directions took us further into the country to a 'private property' signed gate. We abandoned the car and after climbing over the gate we finished the final 1.3miles on foot. The driveway was sided by wild hedge growth and was shaded and framed by great, dark green trees. We had to sneak past and through the barn which was thankfully deserted, but after the great thrill of our daring I was a tad disappointed to find that this farm had recently removed the crops which would have made the circle possible. We had definitely found the spot though, because there was a stern warning card left for those who would come to witness this particular sight for themselves. Not very sporting, I dare say.
As we drove back we noticed strange patterns in the fields of Wernham Farm which appeared to have been stamp-pressed into the greenery. We turned around to check it out and then got on out of the car to stand on the border fence, where we found ourselves attacked by vicious and surprisingly painful insects. The place was infested. I could see the flea-like monsters swarming on the grass and weeds. I only saw this after fleeing back to the car post bite-pain. We returned home, alien hunting satisfied for the day.
