White Horse Hill, Uffington

Whitehorse Hill is a 98.9-hectare (244-acre) biological and geological Site of Special Scientific Interest west of Wantage in Oxfordshire. It is a Geological Conservation Review site and has several Scheduled Monuments, including the Uffington White Horse.
This dry valley provides evidence of solifluction (slow sloping downhill due to repeated freezing and thawing) duing the at least one cold stage of the Pleistocene. The site has unimproved chalk grassland with a rich variety of flora, particularly in former chalk quarries. Grasses include upright brome and sheep’s fescue.
