Re: The White Horse - fixed...
The evidence is there Barry and you are correct. As with most very old memories, things look different today. What I thought was huge was not so large but I have also read an article which said the Cleadon / Marsdon horse could be seen from miles away before housing development blocked the view. My visits to the area were in the late 1940s before the vast housing estates were built. Thank you for your Google Earth graphic which took me much closer than I ever thought possible.
