Marlborough's White Horse - in a sad and sorry state
On a visit to Marlborough, which has been home to my family for generations, my daughter and I set off to take my grand children for their first visit to the White Horse.
All went well past the old spring ( where is it?) and swimming pool in Treacle Bolly and up Butterfly Alley.
However, the famous and much publicised White Horse was a disgrace... More green than white, grown over and surrounded by barbed wire, much of which is hidden under foliage. Reaching the eye to make a wish resulted in only one scratch, but the children were underwhelmed.
Come on, Marlborough, you can do better! Please clean up your act, put in a gate and some steps and let the White Horse live again!
