5518332English Heritage: Uffington Castle, White Horse & Dragon Hill
DateFriday 1st January 2016 to Tuesday 31st December 2019
DescriptionThe Ridgeway is the ancient route that stretched from Dorset to the Wash and still traverses the chalk ridges of the Berkshire Downs. Often described as Britain's oldest road, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that the area is home to three of the South East's most important prehistoric sites: Uffington Castle, White Horse and Dragon Hill. Uffington 'Castle', which occupies the summit of Whitehorse Hill, is a rare and outstanding example of a large Iron Age fort. The White Horse is located around 170 meters to the north-east, and although its exact function is uncertain (possible uses may have been as a territorial marker or a fertility symbol), it is generally thought to date, along with the hill-fort, from the Iron Age. The final of the three sites is Dragon Hill, a natural mound named after its association with a legend of St George. The mound, which is around 10 meters high, is located nearby to the famous and enigmatic horse, and rounds off a visit to this important site very nicely indeed.
