“Muddy walk to see horse”

Preshute White Horse Hill Figure
Reviewed 2 April 2018

Sadly The white horse near Calne was too far in the wrong direction for us so we decided to visit this one. We viewed it from a muddy path near Marlborough College. I don't think you can get very close to it. It was made by boys from Mr Greasley's Academy in 1804. After the school closed it went into neglect. It was restored in 1860 and again in 1873 with a new scouring of chalk. In 2001 it was cleaned up again, but by 2002 was grassing up again. Today, it looked clean enough, but it has got thinner since its fist cut.

WE went out to see it as recommended- saw it on way there so easy to find and then parked for a closer look. The views from there were great to but there wasnt much extra to see when there. Just drive past and you have ticked the bucket shop box lol!

A very impressive and quaint feature. It is amazing to specualate on the origins of this thing. I just wish the weather had been kinder to us when we visited.

This delightful horse can be seen a distance off from the road. There's also a good walk to it along the byways.

It is an easy comfortable town to be in. There are many places to eat and visiting nearby towns and villages is easy by bus or car, with a train station in a town very close by.
