White Horse Uffington


The White Horse dating back to 2000 o 3000 years is cut out of the turf on the chalky upper slopes of Uffington Castle near to the Ridgeway. It stands 374 feet long, and is Britain's oldest and most famous hill figure. The theories related to the origin and builders of the white horse are usually linked with Stonehenge.

In the 19th century, the monument turned out to be extremely overrun in, and it now protected and restored under the supervision of the English Heritage. The visitors should note that due to the rains, the top of the hill can become extremely windy as it has no cover.
