Alton Barnes White Horse: Located between Milk Hill & Walkers Hill on the Pewsey Downs, the Alton Barnes horse is thought to have been cut under Robert Pile, the son of the creator of the Pewsey old horse, in 1812.

An artist, John Thorne was selected to design and cut the horse on the hill above the village. The Alton Barnes horse faces south and is the largest of the Kennet Horses measuring 165ft by 180ft. The figure is best viewed from the bridge on the Kennet and Avon canal one mile south of the horse.
