Wiltshire is surely the epicentre of oddities. From inexplicable crop circles to mysterious prehistoric sites, this quintessential slice of unspoiled Britain is one of the most baffling and interesting places on the planet.

Why do weird and wonderful patterns suddenly appear in the corn fields of our countryside? 2018 showed some very impressive formations and the summer of 2019 is expected to be even better. Are they simply an elaborate hoax or are they caused by U.F.O s, earth energies or plasma vortexes?
