The Uffington White Horse is a highly stylized prehistoric hill figure, 110 m long, formed from deep trenches filled with crushed white chalk.  It lies on the upper slopes of White Horse Hill in Uffington, in Oxfordshire.  The figure dates back about 3,000 years, to the Bronze Age, somewhere between 1400 and 600 BC.  The Uffington is the oldest of the white horse figures in Britain, and is of an entirely different design from the others.
