I present Matthew Williams’ appalling series of posts aimed at David Butler, farmer of the Martinsell Hill field, without comment. The reader can make up their own mind. I can’t help but feel that if somebody like Monique Klinkenbergh or Paul Jacobs had stepped in instead of Williams, though, future formations on Mr Butler’s land could have been saved. He even seems agreeable. As things stand now, another swathe of Wiltshire is now out of bounds to crop circles.

Mates’ Rates

It’s good to see that RACCF’s mates’ rates philosophy of crop circle discussion continues on Crop Circle Wisdom. Here’s a screenshot from the site regarding the recent Longwood Warren formation.37174846_10156254673710937_7499434814928322560_nThe Kingweston circle also has visible construction lines and centre components of differing proportions, as one can see from the photo below by Nick Bull, but Mr Pyrka considers it the work of ‘the pros’ or ‘the MASTER’ and thus beyond criticism. DJI_0482Wisdom shmisdom.

Words Of Advice

Since I’m not in the business of outing circle makers, some words of advice in lieu of a screenshot. It is generally considered wise when constructing a formation not to post the diagram on your Instagram account beforehand.

The ‘Wisdom’ Of Hackpen Hill

Crop Circle Wisdom may be one of the most ironically named websites out there. Each update sees Andrew Pyrka blunder his way through half-truth, conjecture, and plain invention. Does anybody even read it anymore, other than those like myself who want to amuse themselves at whatever cobblers he’s come out with this time? The man increasingly seems an irrelevance, a lone voice hectoring into the void.

Still, CCW is always good for entertainment if nothing else. One of the more recent posts, on “the darkness of Hackpen Hill formations !”, is a good case in point. Here, we see Mr Pyrka take a false and fanciful notion and run with it for ten paragraphs of bullshit.



Andy, you have no idea who made these circles. You’re guessing, and you’re wrong. Not only are you barking up the wrong tree – barking being the operative word – you’re not even in the right forest. As such your entire article is farcical. It did make me laugh so hard I nearly shat myself, though.


The arrival of two circles at Hackpen Hill has caused quite a stir in the recent weeks, with claims the makers constructed then reported them for the benefit of Paul Jacobs – currently manning the fields and taking entrance fee money for charity – or the Crop Circle Connector. Here’s one:-

Charles Mallett Hackpen Hill June 2018

Let’s be very clear here; there is no evidence whatsoever of any collusion between circle makers, the farmer, Paul Jacobs, and / or The Crop Circle Connector with regard to either of the circles at Hackpen Hill. The first Hackpen Hill circle was discovered by Gary King, the second by Allie Hart. Neither were “reported by crop circle hoaxers” to any of the aforementioned parties. Any claims otherwise are mere supposition.

True Colours

I wouldn’t advocate one watches Matthew Williams’ videos, but one of the most recent definitely gives the mark of the man. It’s an expletive-heavy, thirteen minute, toys-out-of-the-pram rant, aimed chiefly at Steve Alexander, but also at others who Williams feels are not playing by his appointed rules. Notable is his referring to researcher and photographer Hugh Newman as ‘Hugh Jewman’, which certainly gives an indication of Williams’ true colours. If you want an intimation of what the crop circle world has had to put up with for the last several years, this is it.


A Beginner’s Guide To Circle Killing # 2

The lure of non-existent financial recompense is simply too much for a certain breed of crop circle maker. One is attempting to flog his construction diagrams via Facebook, and in the process has killed a number of circles from the past few seasons. Here are some screen captures (via Crop Circle Wisdom).

What a vapid and sordid endeavour. Congratulations, you have utterly extinguished any interest these circles may once have held. They are now mere vandalism, the rural equivalent of tossing a brick through a shop window. Is that really what you wanted to achieve, after all the labour of putting them in the field? You have also openly confessed to numerous specific cases of criminal damage to farmers’ property, and I note that in one case you’ve even been dumb enough to attach a copyright notification and date to a formation that still sits in the field as I write this. What an idiot.
