- July 13th - 20th
- August 3rd - 10th
With such a small group, led by Denni Clarke, in her 20th year of leading tours, we can be free and spontaneous to explore crop circles as they appear. This is the height of the season - the week will be packed with adventures, hunting out new crop circles (it’s really like a treasure hunt sometimes), and meeting with other researchers and interesting people from around the world who are compelled to take an annual Pilgrimage to explore this enigmatic mystery. We’ll stay in a lovely B&B in the heart of Wiltshire crop circle country and our week will be interspersed with visits to the myriad of ancient sites that are concentrated in this glorious Sacred Landscape, including entrance to Stonehenge outside hours for sunset meditation. Also included is a day trip to Glastonbury, which has been a spiritual center for thousands of years.
Example Tour Itinerary:
Day 1: Meet at pre-arranged time and place at London Heathrow Airport (LHR). Travel to our accommodations, lunching at a country pub en route. We will be staying right in the heart of Crop Circle country. After settling in, go to visit our first Crop Circle. In the evening, enjoy our “Welcome Dinner” at one of the charming country pubs in the area.
Day 2: After a leisurely breakfast drive to the Silent Circle, the “croppie” meeting place. Take a picnic lunch to Avebury, visiting the largest Stone Circle in Europe and then explore any Crop Circles in the vicinity. Before we go back to our cottage, stop by the Henge Shop, a favourite place for discerning shoppers.
Day 3: In the morning (weather permitting) we’ll have the opportunity to take an exhilarating flight above the Crop Circles, so that you can see from above ones you’ve visited on the ground and get a chance to spot any new ones. Enjoy lunch in the interesting old market town of Marlborough. In the afternoon visit West Kennett Long Barrow (a 5000 year old chambered tomb), and see close by Silbury Hill (largest man made mound in Europe), taking in any formations that are in the area.
Day 4: Today we'll take a trip to Glastonbury and ancient Avalon, leaving early and staying late. Here you will have the opportunity to visit the Chalice Well, with its healing waters and peaceful gardens, climb Glastonbury Tor, and Wearyall Hill, visit the ancient Abbey ruins, and explore the unique and colourful shops. Stop for dinner at a quaint country pub on the way home.
Day 5: In case we weren't able to fly the other day, we’ll have another opportunity today. Otherwise, explore any new Crop Circles. Have lunch at The Barge Inn, a “croppie’ meeting place of yesteryear, set in a picturesque setting by the Kennet and Avon Canal, and then on to Devizes, a captivating old market town.
Day 6: After breakfast visit the Silent Circle and then spend the day visiting any new formations we hear about or maybe an interesting older one that is further afield. After dinner at a lovely country pub, this evening we have a special visit to Stonehenge where we have special access inside the circle for sunset meditation.
Day 7: This is our last day together and our last Crop Circle experiences. Group consensus will decide what else. This afternoon we’ll be honoured to have afternoon tea with Michael Glickman, one of the “elders” of crop circle research, at his cottage. Here we will be enlightened by his unique insights into the Crop Circles and entertained by his witty humour. To top off our amazing week, afterwards, we will enjoy our Farewell Dinner together at a charming country pub.
Day 8: After breakfast, it is goodbye to Crop Circle country and back to London Heathrow.
This is only a rough outline of the itinerary, as we will have to take into account the weather, the energy and needs of the group, the availability of the Crop Circles, as well as being as open to synchronistic experiences as much as possible.
