The Westbury White Horse (pictured above) is located on the edge of Bratton Downs and lying just below an Iron Age hill fort, approximately 1.6 miles east of Westbury. It is the oldest of a number of white horses carved in Wiltshire. In 1778, it was restored but it was an action, which may have obliterated a previous horse that had occupied the same hillside. A contemporary engraving of the 1760’s appears to show a horse facing in the opposite direction, and also rather smaller than the present figure.
