The Uffington Horse, Oxfordshire
In Wiltshire there are several realistic White Horses ...
When I was tiny, I had an old maiden aunt, who lived in an ancient cottage with metre-thick walls deep in the Wiltshire countryside.
The house was near The Westbury White Horse
Trotting White Horse, Wiltshire Hills
Baby White Horse, Devizes, Wiltshire.
The newest chalk horse, produced in 1999
(To make these, you just excavate the grass and the chalk's right there; they only need filling in with fresh chalk when they get really old)
The leaping Folkestone White Horse in Kent
The Long Man of Wilmington is a 70 metre tall giant on a cliff south of the village of Wilmington in the South Downs, between Eastbourne and Brighton in the county of East Sussex
But the most famous figure stands "only" 55 metres high in Cern Abbas in Dorset. He is best known for being "excited" ...
The "excitement" stands 3-4 metres high ...
(Visitors to the site keep making it bigger~!)
The figure is generally believed to be an ancient fertility god
But the historian Aubrey Manning posited that he is in fact a caricature of the only president (1649-1658) England has ever had, Oliver Cromwell!
He kind of looks surprised to be stark naked ...
In 2007, Homer Simpson appeared next to the giant
Executed in white paint, the figure was a publicity stunt promoting the latest Simpsons movie
