Chalk Horses
Short Summary created by Fergalh  13 Nov 2020
Much more interesting than the summit is the White horse carved into Hill. There are a number of carvings of horses on hills in England. The vast majority of them are in Wiltshire (nine to be exact) and a few elsewhere scattered around England. If driving down from Swindon you will see it as you drive up Hackpen Hill Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5383/comment/11731/
