An article from my former website (contains links to web archives).
My very special place is the environs of the White Horse and the hills around it at Uffington.
The most ancient of the known white horses of England gallops across the Berkshire Downs (now Oxfordshire – since the border changes). Its beautiful design is constructed from chalk- filled trenches. Estimated to be at least 3000 years old its makers are a mystery.
I was looking at my pictures of this Oxfordshire crop circle recently.
It was reported to the Crop Circle Connector on 21st April 2005, and I visited it that afternoon to take ground shots of it. I did make a report and sent that and the photos to Mark Fussell at the Crop Circle Connector.
Later, on the 26th April, I flew over it and photographed it, as well as others that were present in the vicinity.
About time. Firms, in staggering numbers, and supported by their shareholders, pay peanuts and expect everyone else to supplement the crumbs they begrudgingly pay via increasingly shaved government payments. Meanwhile they dodge taxes, health and respite contributions through employing several people part-time workers instead of proper jobs. The amount of money they steal from the community by these methods pales into small change any Daily Flail (and its press-gang posse) pushed (so-called) benefit cheating. Profit for the sake of greed at the expense of people’s welfare is only one of this world’s despicable curses. Good on Corbyn! Jeremy Corbyn to warn businesses over ‘unfair’ pay
In June 2000 I arranged with the Oxford-based Contact International UFO Research Group to give an exclusive premier of an award-winning documentary video.

The Syrian crisis has just seen a drastic escalation in the potential for what could essentially turn into World War 3 with the NATO bloc engaging in direct military confrontation with the Russian alliance. Only hours ago, Turkey announced that it shot down a Russian jet, a claim confirmed by the Russian government shortly thereafter. Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet; Emergency NATO Meeting Called
The lovely church of St Mary perches in a lofty position overlooking a south Oxfordshire vale where until recent times crop circles swept through the fields below most every summer. They stopped abruptly when she was clad about with a chastity belt of iron by English Heretics (Heritage), which interrupted the flow of the St Michael energy stream.
This is an article that was previously published on my former website, Looking into the Dark Places.
In their 1989 book, ‘The Sun and the Serpent‘, Hamish Miller and Paul Broadhurst described their epic journey tracing the long May Day dragon lines that weave across the breadth of England, from the tip of Cornwall at Carn Lês Boel to (what I’ve perceived to be) the navel of the Goddess, by the burned-out church of St. Margaret’s at Hopton-on-Sea. Norfolk.(St. Margaret is a dragon-slayer – which I can’t recall the book mentioning, though it might have.) Continue reading →
