The Cherhill White Horse and the Landsdowne Monument
The Cherhill White Horse and the Landsdowne Monument
The Cherhill, or Oldbury, White Horse was originally cut in 1780. It once had a glass eye formed from upturned bottles but these were robbed out. Attempts were made to replace the eye but these suffered the same fate. The current eye is stone and concrete.

The Lansdowne Monument is a 38 metre stone obelisk erected in 1845 by Third Marquis of Lansdowne, in remembrance of one of his ancestors, Sir William Petty who was a physician and surveyor. The monument was restored by the National Trust in 1990.
