95/365 Devizes White Horse

Yesterday I went out on my bike to deliver a few supplements to a new housing estate just round the corner from where we live, the road was called "White Horse Drive" and this is why.



The Devizes white horse faces in the opposite direction to all the other Wiltshire white horses, because it is a millenium horse rather than an old one. You can read all about it here.

Thanks joy, that was a really interesting piece to read - a little more knowledge for my rusty brain to retain! Didn't know about horses facing one way or the other, just goes to show you just accept what you see.

Very nice photo and I too didn't know about the different direction.
