The Westbury Horse is a prominent hill figure on Salisbury Plain, close to Westbury that can be viewed 16-17 miles in all directions. Located on the edge of Bratton Downs and lying just below an Iron Age hill fort, it is the oldest of several white horses carved in Wiltshire. Its age and origins are not known for certain though it may commemorate King Alfred's victory at a battle and it has only been at the site for around 300 years. The horse is 180 feet tall and 170 feet wide. Originally chalk it has now been concreted for ease of maintenance and is considered to be a symbol for Wiltshire.
