See the Kilburn White Horse, North Yorkshire

Found above the village of Kilburn in North Yorkshire, the Kilburn White Horse was created rather later than many hill figures in England, having been laid out in 1857, probably either by a local school master named John Hodgson or by a local man named Thomas Taylor.

The figure is one of the largest white horses, measuring 97 metres by 67 metres and covering more than 6,000 square metres.
