Can you solve riddles? - Here is a challenge...
In the quiet village of Alton Priors - Wiltshire - the heart of Crop Circle Country, stands an Idyllic church with a mystery that only a few are aware of.
Within its quiet walls, a brass plaque is embedded at the Alter end of the church. This plaque has raised curiosity to the passing tourist as there is very little information to its intention, you can search as much as you like but you will find very little reference to the meaning of this plaque.
This is the only site where you will see the plaque in its entirety, other sites have cropped the information off the few images out there in circulation - this of course raises a question why is this plaque so secretive ?
The local caretaker will tell you a tale of a gentleman called William Button who apparently was regarded as pompous and was disliked by the community. Mr Button was so impressed by the landscape, he decided to buy majority of the land surrounding Alton Priors. He was so pompous that he also decided to have a brass plaque engraved in honor of his death, but before he died. (This is what you will be told )
However, the plaque shows a different story, not so much a story of a dieing man who wanted to be remembered for his name, but rather to what he saw, hence his purchase of the surrounding land.
It appears that Mr. William Button did see something of importance, so rather than just telling the world to what he saw, he decided to leave a clue and a riddle for future generations to solve.
I have gathered as much information as I could to aide others who may wish to continue in solving the riddle Mr. Button has left behind.
I will of course be curious to your findings.....so please do write in and I will include all possibilities on this page.
All Saints (Norman) Church in Alton Priors - Wiltshire
The Brass Plaque - Not scaled down
Please note that the words written on this plaque are written in old English - The translation may sound like this;
THIS WAS BUT ONE - THOUGH TAKING ROOM FOR THREE RELIGION, WISDOM, HOSPITALITY
BUT SINCE HEAVEN GATE TO ENTER BY IS STRAIGHT
HIS FLESH BURIED HERE HE LEFT TO WAIT
TILL THE LAST TRUMPET BLOW OPEN THE WIDE GATE
TO GIVE IT ENTRANCE TO THE (dee) - SOLVE ITS MATE
Please take note: BUT SINCE HEAVEN GATE TO ENTER BY IS STRAIGHT - This is important while taking into consideration other evidence which is listed below.
Notice the sequence of engraved images
1. Sun 2. Full Moon 3. Sun
4. Moon cycle 5. Sun 6. Opposite Moon cycle
The words: THIS IS THE GATE OF THE LORD
Is this an indication to a time line when the gate opens?
1. Moon cycle 2. Sun 3. Moon Cycle
4.Sun 5. Full Moon 6. Sun
This would appear to be a mirror image of the opposite side but with different words.
The words: THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL ENTER IT AT
This could be a clear indication that the gate in question opens at a point of the moon cycle and setting or rising sun - ( I believe its the setting sun )

To the Church in Philadelphia
To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The Resurrection Body Corinthians 1.15
But someone may ask, "How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?" How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.
So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory.
Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP INTO VICTORY

IT IS SOWN A NATURAL BODY
To the left of the plaque is a small window - looking directly through this window you can see the longbarrow of Adams Grave ( Also know as ' Walkers Hill ' .
Within the church itself - there are 2 trap doors.
By opening the first trap door you will see nothing but concrete - rather curious - has this been filled in?
The second trap door contains a Sarsen stone. Look closely and you will see that this stone has been broken and cemented together the wrong way up.
I believe that this Sarsen stone was once a key stone to the front entrance of the Long Barrow to Adams Grave. At the top of Adams Grave there is still evidence that two key stones stood at the opening to the Long Barrow which now has been filled in. At some stage in time these two stones have been broken off and brought down to this church. One stone has been hidden beneath the floor and the other stone is used as a stepping stone over a stream, just outside the church.
Look at the stone again and you will see that this stone has an eye hole - a similar stone can be also found at the West Kennett Long Barrow opposite Silbury Hill - curious however that this stone with a similar eye hole has also been removed from its original position and now lying flat on the ground. So the question is - by looking through these eye holes would we have a straight alignment with the mentioned GATE in the plaque ? What did Mr William Button see ?
I also believe that the first trap door is a smoke screen to make us believe that the second stone has been buried and covered by concrete.
There is more !. Outside the church opposite the 1000 year old tree, look up and you will see a ' half sun dial ' on the South side of the church. This sundial is in Arabic numerals.
I believe this sundial has a connection with the plaque and its sun and moon phase cycle.
In relation to the position of the church - sunrise is North East, so this sundial is non effective until the sun rises above and over the church - we are yet to gauge the position and movement of the moon. Every time I have tried to do this - cloud cover has been to thick establish true co-ordinates.
The belief is now that Mr. William Button bought the land, not because he was pompous, it is because he saw something which enlightened his sight and mind. It would appear to be unlikely that he shared this moment with anyone - hence he left this secret to be solved by anyone who may wish to solve its riddle.
Crop Circle enthusiasts will be aware that is area in question is very active in UFO sightings, unusual lights and crop circles. Many have also reported of ' Portals ' appearing around this area. One case I have been made aware of by a crop circle researcher that a Military helicopter was directly in front of an opening portal , in and around the Adams Grave area.
In 2008 and 2009, I fully believe that some of the crop circle formations in and around the Milk Hill area are pointing to Biblical references.
On August 8th 2008 - I have caught on camera a beam of light directly over the area in question - was this the gate or a portal ?
