Mystery of hill circle
[circ.jpg] An unusual and intricate man made circle has been
photographed by a local man walking in woods on Crickley Hill near
The discovery was made by Roger Fenton from Stroud during the middle
of October. Both Mr Fenton and This is Gloucestershire would be
interested to discover just what it is.
Mr Fenton said: "About two weeks ago I was walking on Crickley Hill
near Gloucester, in the woods to the right of the car park as you
enter. In the woods there is a round depression , it looks like a bomb
crater, about 30 ft wide and 15 ft deep.
"You can't see it until you are very close, nor can anyone in it be
seen easily. On this occasion I found a strange circular pattern at
the bottom of it, it must have taken some time to make & some trouble.
"It seems a mystery, I wondered if it is connected with witchcraft.
"It is made from an outer circle of Cotswold stones then aligned
sticks pointing to the centre then brown leaves & then green leaves."
If anyone has any idea whether it is connected with witchcraft, or
merely a piece of spontaeous autumnal art, please e-mail the editor
here mailto:dominic.long@... .
