Archaeologists at work widening the Uffington White Horse figure

Our work at White Horse Hill 

We've been working with Oxford Archaeology to restore Uffington White Horse, Britain's oldest chalk figure. The head and neck had narrowed to less than half of their typical width. We've been able to cut back encroaching turf and topsoil to counter this. This means there's no need for a public 'scouring' event as planned this year, but all are welcome to walk on White Horse Hill and see the results of this important work.
