They keep appearing and some of them are quite beautiful:

Are they just made up images or are they real? 

What level of autism would be necessary to spend the hours and hours creating one of them?

If I was the farmer I’d be fucking furious, though I’ve heard most of the income for arable is subsidy anyway so perhaps they don’t care all that much.

Maybe these angles make them look more authentic?

I can assure you that the phenonema is very real.

OK, so Chewy spends nights running around with ropes and measuring devices in cornfields. Anyone else owning up?

There isn't a dispute on that AFAIK.

In certain valleys, particularly in WIltshire / Oxfordshire, when the wind is strong enough mini-tornadoes are formed which when they touch the ground in wheat / barley fields flatten the crop in a circle with all the stalks following the rotation of the tornado.

Anything that isn't a simple circle is however made by creative locals; and they can be works of art.

There was a time when farmers recuited smart guys in the local pub to make them,

 There was good money in convincing people like Reg Presley to part with money to walk around in them to "investigate"

Loads in Hampshire this year. They are getting quite ornate. Those space aliens  must have been getting art lessons off Spunko.

Locals with the power of invisibility who can work in pitch black and never make a mistake.

For scale, the parallel tractor lines are approx 9 feet apart.

In the last 30 years alot of skeptics have tried to prove that crop circles are manmade hoaxes, but their attempts have never gone past making jaggedy patterns which don't resemble a proper circle from any vantage point. All that's usually left behind is a messy heap of damaged crop stalks.

Some from nearly 20 years ago are spectacular.

You can see at night and reasonably well if there is any part of the moon shining.

They're excellent but they're artwork.

Probably because @The XYY Man lives in ‘pool. 

Pay attention number one.

I am from Hartlepool, but currently live a few miles up the road in the Peterlee area.

Bit like that YORKSHIRE-Cockerney shit you've been doing for the last thirty-five years...

;)

These intrigue me. How long would it take one or two people to create the pattern above, with such a high level of accuracy? More than a summer night's worth of darkness, surely? And, ultimately, why?

About three full days for a team of six with aerial support, would be my best guess. Even then I'm not entirely convinced it would be 100% geometrically precise. 

Why? That's jndeed the ultimate question! :)

And again, the scale of these should not be underestimated:

This massive 780-foot (238 meters) crop circle appeared in 2001 in the remote area of Milk Hill in Wiltshire, England. The elaborate design is composed of 409 circles that form a pattern called a double, or six-sided, triskelion, which is a motif consisting of three interlocking spirals.
