Photographer's Note

The White Horse at Kilburn was completed in 1857 by volunteers. It is 314ft (95.7m) long and 228ft (69.5m) tall. The rock isn’t naturally white so it has to be painted regularly by local residents who have set up a charity fund for the preservation of the white horse: the Kilburn White Horse Association
.
Kilburn is a small village in the North Yorkshire National Park. I marked the White Horse on the map (link right).You can see it very clearly, which probably gives an even better idea how large it is than on the photo. I'm not so sure of my point of view, but it was by the roadside just before entering Kilburn village. Scroll down the map to see the village.

This is the first TE entry from Kilburn. Unless someone 'placed' the White Horse somewhere else I guess this is also the first photo of it.
