The UK's crop circle season appears to have drawn to a close for 2011 with the last formation reported on Aug. 28 between Alnwick and Alnmouth in Northumberland.

As usual, the most activity was seen in Wiltshire where a bumper crop of 22 patterns sprouted up during July, the busiest month, according to the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group.

The most recent Wiltshire formation was a five-dimensional hypercube or penteract that appeared at Jubilee Plantation on Aug. 15.
While British farmers are probably breathing a sigh of relief, crop circle hunters will have to find an alternative hobby until the next season begins.

In the meantime, enjoy this slideshow of 111 patterns that have appeared in England over the seasons.
