I received a call from a contact within Wiltshire Police constabulary. I have
built-up a few friendly contacts due to my continual use of the Freedom of
Information Act to extract information of UFOs, and this police sergeant is
one of them. The contact, who doesn’t want to be named, was driving past
Silbury Hill early Monday morning (6th July 2009) when he saw three figures
in the formation there. At first he thought they were forensic officers as they
were dressed in white coveralls. He stopped his car and approached the
field. The figures were all over 6ft and had blond hair. They seemed to be
inspecting the crop. When he got to the edge of the field he heard what he
believed to be a sound not dissimilar to static electricity. This crackling noise
seemed to be running through the field and the crop was moving gently
close to where the noise was moving. He felt the hair on his arms and back
of his neck raise up. He shouted to the figures who at first ignored him, not
glancing at him. When he tried to enter the field they looked up and began
running. He said “They ran faster than any man I have ever seen. I’m no
slouch but they were moving so fast. I looked away for a second and when I
looked back they were gone. I then got scared. The noise was still around,
but I got an uneasy feeling and headed for the car. For the rest of the day I
had a pounding headache I couldn’t shift”.

The experience that follows has been something that has taken up
much of my time since it occurred and through the usual ‘coincidences’ it fell
into my lap. Through this experience and having knowledge of others that
have either occurred this year or come to light this year, I believe that we will
become more aware of paranormal events that have a degree of high
strangeness. This following experience has confirmed to me that there has
been some sort of shift in many phenomena. Not only a shift in their
frequency, but I believe a shift in the intentions of the entities involved, a
shift in the experiencers ability to interact with these events and more public
visibility of these events.
The beings sounded not too dissimilar to beings Arthur Shuttlewood
encountered in Warminster, and the presence of the static electricity
running along the ground was documented in these encounters too. These
are interesting times…
Having driven the route with the officer several times, several things
became apparent: When we arrived at the location where he parked his car
(side of the road) he pointed to where the beings were, according to the
officer one was very near the brow of the hill, one was a few yards further
down in a different tramline, and one was about halfway down the slight hill.
So I asked the $64,000,000 question about the fact that the formation
couldn’t be seen from the road. His response was that he knew prior to
the experience there was a formation ’somewhere over there’ (he had
heard this discussed) and he ‘knew’ they had been in it. He ‘knew’ they
were inspecting the crop. When questioned how he ‘knew’ he said that
‘you know what day of the week it is, but no-one has told you, you
haven’t seen a calender, you just know’. Did he have some psychic
awareness? Was something communicated to him? This is a man who views
the world in the black and white of the letter of the law, this is a man
whose testimony can imprison someone, in my humble opinion he is not
taken to flights of fancy with metaphysical concepts.
The three red dots mark the approximate positions of the strange tall beings.
I am reminded of Mike Booth's experience of seeing some objects ‘working’ on
creating a circle in a field and the psychic element of that experience. I think
his original statement of ‘figures in the formation’ was a generalisation based
on his knowledge and what we have learned later. I also think that if his motive
was to create a story he wouldn’t have fallen for this basic error, his story
would have knitted together better.
We moved on to the figures running away at speed. If two of them were so
close to the brow of the hill, how much running would he actually see?
One of them would have disappeared instantly as they were near the brow
of the hill. He says that they moved very fast, as if you were watching
a video or DVD in fast forward mode. This would have been noticeable for
the being farthest from the hill brow. As we spoke I watched the hairs
on the officers arms raise as he relived the experience in his mind.
When I asked whether they ran away out of sight or disappeared he was
adamant they disappeared. He claimed he glanced away for a second and
his claims that the being that was the furthest away was not near enough
the brow of the hill for him to run out of view despite his rapid movement.
Again, there is a deep ‘knowing’ they disappeared. As we stood by the side of
the road he became very nervous of the people gathering at the busy Silbury
Hill car park, I believe this experience has left a mark deeper than he realises.
After showing me where he tried to enter the field we drove to his home.
We drove the route, and relived the experience several times. The last
three times I timed the route, and asked him about how long each stage
of the experience lasted, and for the three journeys I timed we have a
five minute discrepency. Now, even allowing for a busier road (it was
Marlborough Jazz festival last weekend) and how quiet it would have been
the morning of the experience, the timings do not add up and I believe
we have five minutes missing time. As a clinical hypnotherapist I have
done quite a bit of work with experiencers over the years so I have got
quite adept at spotting missing time. His wife also verifies the time of
his arrival home on that day, and it tallies with my belief there is at
least five minutes missing time. At the moment the officer does not wish
to explore this missing time.
After the experience the officer suffered what he called poltergeist
experiences. Several electrical items began to malfunction and there
were strange knocks at the front door. When the officer answered the
door there would be no-one there. The officer felt he had brought
something home with him, several days after the experience he said that
he had felt a presence within his home. Sometimes, when walking out to
the kitchen, he said he saw in his minds eye a brief flash of a towering
black figure (approx 8ft) standing before him. These types of
experiences are quite common with experiencers.
A few days after the experience the officer felt there were pieces of
the experience coming to mind that he was not at first aware of. He came
to believe that the beings were identical, in a clone-like manner but
also shared an intelligence, almost in a hive-like mentality. He also
believes that these beings were not responsible for this or any crop
circle. He also went on to state that he shouldn’t have seen what he had
seen, and believes this was communicated to him at the time. He doesn’t
know where this information came from and these concepts and thoughts
are outside his usual frame of reference.
I am quite convinced that the officer had an experience that day, and
one that we have not fully explored as I think with the unusual movement
of the beings, the missing time and the poltergeist type experiences
after the event, just to name a few, there is too much additional
information to say this is something in nothing. I do not believe the
officer has the knowledge to create this story to the detail he has. A
cursory glance on his bookcase in his living room and his study reveal
no books that would suggest a knowledge or belief in UFOs,
para-psychology or the paranormal. His cursory interest in crop circles
comes from an experience his daughter had and how crop circles affect
policing in the Wiltshire area (increased traffic, irate farmers,
reports of damage to crops etc).
A few months after the event, a local resident came forward to say that
he believed he saw a car not far from Marlborough that he believed may
have been the officers. In fact he was correct, he was able to describe
the officers car exactly. This is important as the officers car is an
unusual colour which is why it stuck in his mind. This confirms the
timeline and confirms the officer being where he said he was.
More recently, the officer involved witnessed an orange globe in the sky
not far from his home. He was having difficulty sleeping, which he
claims is unusual for him, so he decided to get up and pop outside the
back of his house for a cigarette. He had been in his garden long enough
to light up a cigarette when he noticed a large orange/amber globe
several hundred yards from the bottom of his garden. The globe hovered
silently, started a move very slightly from side to side, then shot off
at high speed.
The officer’s continuing experiences show that whatever the origin of
these events, once they enter into someone's life they seem to have a
continuing presence. The officer has agreed in principle to an interview
with a major media outlet for a forthcoming documentary which will allow
the wider crop-circle/UFO community to hear this amazing incident from
the experiencer himself. He will also show a forensic sketch-artists
recreation of the beings that he saw.
Not long after this event I was contacted by a computer programmer from
London who had an experience with a tall being in the car park at
Silbury Hill a few weeks after the officers experience. He parked there
to rest awhile after visiting a company customer. He was aware of
something off to his left as he sat in the car. A strange sensation of a
prickly warmth and as if someone was watching him. He related to me that
he turned to witness a ‘strange man’ staring at him from the edge of the
car park. The programmer claimed he was blond, with an unusual face and
there was something ‘different’ about him. He was dressed in normal
clothes but the programmer kept emphasising there was something ‘not
quite right’. That was the last thing the programmer can remember, he
said that the next thing he knew it was about an hour later and the man
was gone. The programmer believes he fell asleep but in the context of
typical experiences of this nature I do not believe this is the case. I
am still investigating this case and will update as soon as possible.
Our team investigated the field some days later
By Colin Andrews
My wife Synthia and I were joined by Busty Taylor and Maria Wheatley. We
parked our vehicles in the Silbury Hill car park almost opposite the location the
police sergeant had seen the 'Tall Beings' and had pulled to the side of the A4
highway to view them.
We walked the three tramlines in which the policeman had noted their
approximate positions. While it had been some days since the event and
many visitors to the crop circle design in the field, we did observe some
unusual damage (tracks) in the standing crop adjacent to one tramline. The
plants were bent over but the soil did not seem to have been compressed in
any way. Some of the tendrils that came away from the arcing pathway ended
abruptly as if what ever had made them either lifted upwards or disappeared.
The main track though did lead towards the top of the hill and away from
where the police officer was stood. That track re-entered the tramline towards
the top of the hill.
Busty and I experimented with crouching from the tramline down into the
crops to see if a person could be seen from that position, imitating a human
trying to avoid being seen from the road. While it took a few seconds to
accomplish this without hurting himself, it was achieved, i.e. Busty could NOT
be seen from the road while crouching as seen in the photograph above.
From the edge of the crop circle itself the road could not be seen as other
researchers have pointed out. That said one only had to walk some 30 feet
towards the road for that not to be the case.
Thoughts and Observations
It seems significant that the Tall
Beings were stood in tractor tire
marks (tramlines) just as humans
normally are for ease of movement
without pushing their way through
the standing plants. Could this at
least suggest that they materialize
into solid form for at least some
period. One might expect a form
which utilizes atoms at will to move
through the crop anywhere they
wanted and with no need to stick to
Is it more likely that crop circle
patterns, how ever they are made
create a measurable effect which
acts in such a way with the
environment which attracts these
high strangeness reports? Is it that
Silbury Hill was placed there
because this location has been
some kind of Stargate for hundreds,
if not thousands of years.

A second case from July 2009
which has just come to light.
This time involving a retired
policeman who was driving
home and witnessed a UFO
and small beings he assumed
children in a field near his
home. There are striking
similarities to this Silbury Hill
Policeman case. New case
Thanks to Andy Russell for drawing my
attention to the new case.
