1983

Cheesefoot Head, Nr Winchester, Hampshire.

Reported 19th June

This was the first formation investigated by Colin Andrews.  When he came across this formation at Cheesefoot Head, he had never heard of the three men who would become friends and spend so much time in years to come, they were Pat Delgado, Busty Taylor and Dr. Terence Meaden.
 
This quintuplet set was first found at 6.30 AM on the 19th of June, 1983 in the famous amphitheatre of Cheesefoot Head.  The wheat had five very well defined circles.  The central circle was 52.5 feet in diameter and was swirled clockwise. Each satellite was approximately 13.1 feet in diameter, also swirled clockwise.  The ratio of the two numbers is exactly 4:1.

The A272 became clogged up for hours each evening with cars pulling off the road as families would park up and spend the evenings staring down into the field and chatting about every mystery the universe held.

At this time Circles Phenomenon Research was formed with a small team who would place a new term into vocabulary around the whole world  -  The term 'Crop Circles" had arrived.

This formation consisted of 5 circles in a quintuplet pattern.
