This is a visit to one of the most famous land marks in the county and Angela has kindly offered to lead the walk.
The walk starts high above Oxfordshire countryside giving views over the surrounding counties of Oxfordshire and Wiltshire and takes in the famous chalk figure of a galloping horse on the downs.
This walks also encompasses the villages of Woolstone and Knighton before returning to the high car park. Depending on time we may visit the neolithic long barrow site at Waylands Smithy.
Note there is a prolonged climb on the return.
We meet in the vistors car park for White Horse which is reached off the B4507 and signposted 1 mile out of Uffinton at the crossroards with Woolstone . The area is shown better in this Map link. Please note that there is a car park charge of around £4 but for National Trust members it is free.
Follow the signs for Uffington White Horse and Waylands Smithy, or in absence of those at signposts, follow White Horse Hill till you pick up the Car Park information signs.
