Broad Town White Horse

UK»England»Wiltshire»Broad Town White Horse

Situated on the hill to the east of the village of Broad Town this horse was completed in 1863 by a local farmer William Simmonds.

Measuring 86ft by 61ft it is rumoured that Mr Simmonds had desires to make the figure larger, but he gave up farming and this was never achieved. In subsequent years the horse fell into neglect and the lower parts of its legs became lost.


In 1991 the Broad Town White Horse Restoration Society was formed to maintain the horse and it was restored to its former glory.

The best view of the horse is from the B4041 between Broad Hinton and Broad Town.
