historic old crop circles - UK circles
1965 - Mere
In 1993, The Centre for Crop Circle Studies (CCCS) quarterly journal The Circular printed a letter from reader Douglas Lackford. (See Circular, volume 3, no. 4, page 5.)
Mr Lackford was reporting the appearance of two circles which had appeared some 28 years earlier, in the vicinity of Mere in Wiltshire. Mere is a small village south west of Warminster and lies close to Maiden Bradley, where other circles have been reported throughout the first half of the 20th Century (see separate page for details).
Mr Lackford was told of the circles by a colleague and went to visit them the same day. He recalls the size as being around 40 feet diameter, or approximately 12 metres.
The circles were close to one another, indicating that they had formed at the same time, and there was apparently no obvious access into or out of the circles.
Mr Lackford's letter is reproduced opposite. It is regrettable that there is no further information available at present.
