A Bronze Age white horse I’ve cycled to on many occasions from Brize Norton during my childhood in the 1970s. On a clear day the blue aircraft hangar at RAF Brize Norton can be seen from this spot.
Fay Godwin made a series of photographs here and at Wayland’s Smithy in the 1970s. Unfortunately I never met her during my numerous cycling trips to the area.
St George is said to have slain the dragon on the lower slopes to the left of this photo. Grass no longer grows on top of Dragon Hill where the dragon’s blood was spilled.
