Top Of The Crops! 

Swindon crop circle raising thousands for GWH scanner appeal - VISITOR DETAILS
 

A magnificent crop circle is raising thousands of pounds for the Swindon Great Western Hospital Brighter Futures campaign.
 
The crop circle, located at Uffcott Down near Barbury Castle, has already raised close to 4,000 towards the appeal, which aims to bring a cutting edge Radiotherapy Unit to Swindon.
 
Farmer James Hussey, who lost his wife Gill to cancer, is welcoming visitors to view the crop circle extravaganza, described as an eagle or hawk - with posters on social media platforms speculating that it could be related to the Egyptian sun god Horus.
 
Available to visit 7 days a week
 
The site is available to visit 7 days a week from 9.00am until dusk, with entry costing 3.00 per person. All proceeds go directly to the Brighter Futures charity.
 
If you're unable to visit but would still like to donate, you can do so via the JustGiving website link below.
