The Barge Inn is under new management; Pietro Cuomo and his partner Barbara have moved from Rome to take over ownership of the croppie pub. Initial fears that the Barge would be abandoning its crop circle heritage would seem to be unfounded; this summer it shall be home to Monique Klinkenbergh’s exhibition.

Not to be confused with Croppies – which is much more entertaining – a series of German (with English subtitles for the most part) films from the makers of the documentary New Swirled Order. Filmed in 2012 and featuring plenty of ground and drone shots from that season, Andreas Muller, Jonathan Paul de Vierville, Karen Alexander, Michael Glickman, Steve Alexander, Monique Klinkenbergh, Elisabeth Zollinger, Jay Goldner, Ross Holcomb, along with numerous everyday croppies, also make an appearance. Enjoyable to watch, but one can’t help but feel the material would have been better served by editing it down into an hour-long feature.
Note: Part 4 is missing English subtitles (though half of it is in English anyway).
A recent article in Somerset Live regarding the Crop Circle Access scheme (now being presented more as a compensation fund for farmers), which we have to say is a lot more favourable than the Western Daily Press piece. Article here; screen capture below.
As if the season couldn’t get any worse, now The Daily Mail have put the boot in. Article here, screen captures below. Lots of factual errors here, and it is after all The Daily Mail, so we recommend you proceed with caution.
