Can you give us 30 minutes of your time to help keep the White Horse in tip-top condition? Please check our website for booking details in late May.
- Booking essential
- Free event
Get hands on and help us keep this wonderful historic Horse white for future generations. Every year, we spend hours scouring the White Horse of weeds and moss and then rechalking it. Come and get stuck into this peculiarly satisfying task and help keep the Horse visible for miles around. Protective gloves and a hammer are provided. Families are welcome - while you're here, why not tick off some '50 things' challenges by flying a kite, climbing a hill and rolling back down again.
