This new crop circle image is ringing a few bells with experts who believe the extraordinary design resembles Westminister Abbey.
The extraordinary design appeared at the weekend in Stanton St Bernard in Wiltshire and the church-like spires have been likened to the famous landmark where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were married last year.
The ‘abbey’ formation appeared just two days before another mysterious circle in Waden Hill, also in Wiltshire.

The triangular design, which is decorated with an intricate floral pattern, lies close to ancient Silbury Hill, the largest man-made mound in Europe.
Both were photographed by crop circle expert Lucy Pringle, from Petersfield, Hampshire.

She said: ‘The first one has been likened to church spires, in particular Westminster Abbey.
‘The other consists of a triangle containing a floral pattern.
‘There are many interpretations relating to the meaning of a triangle.
‘In Christian culture it is thought to represent the Divine Trinity – the unity of Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
‘The Greeks saw it as being symbolic of a doorway, giving access to other dimensions and level of consciousness.’
Mystery: Exactly how the crop circle was designed remains unknown. It appeared overnight in the Wiltshire countryside.

Wiltshire has seen a number of crop circles appear in the past few weeks.
Mrs Pringle has also photographed a 240ft long ‘Ocean Sunfish’ design in Woodborough Hill.
The first crop circle of the year appeared early last month in Marlborough.
The 200ft diameter maze-like design was thought to resemble a Polar clock – a device first exhibited in 1848 by Charles Wheatstone as a way of telling the time.
If the theory is correct – the ‘clock’ is set to 7.43pm and 53 seconds on Saturday, August 4, 2012.
Previous formations have included stars, triangles, birds, complicated three dimensional geometric shapes and even intricate patterns with hidden mathematical codes.
