    Uffington Castle is an exceptionally well-preserved example of an Iron Age hill fort. The White Horse is the oldest chalk-cut hill figure in Britain, too; perhaps over 3,000 years old. From the summit, you are afforded wonderful views.

  • Stylized image of a horse, size 107 x 37 meters. Is considered the oldest image in England.
    How is it done? The image is cut into the vegetation and then scratched into the ground until the underlying chalk is visible. Just behind is Uffington Castle. Here, however, only ramparts are available on which one can run but excellent. From the not far away parking lot a small hike leads here. Connected with fantastic views.
