Continuing my series of sights of the South Downs this is the view of the White Horse near Alfriston from the river valley of the Cuckmere, which features on another piece in the series.

The horse itself is diminutive within a landscape dominated by the sweeping turns of the river and the large, flat valley it sits in. Yet its location at the very top of the hillside makes it a focus of a great many beautiful views as you pass on foot, car (on the Littlington road opposite) or bike, from across the Downs.

The elegant animal is these days groomed by the National Trust and her volunteers, who manage the land. It was cut in 1929 by locals to replace an earlier horse whose origins date from the mid 19th century. One story for this lost horse was to celebrate Victoria's coronation. Another, which I prefer, is that two youths saw a patch of chalk which looked like a horse's head and decided to add the rest.

Signed and printed on good quality SRA3 card with a border.

I love these designs, they look so beautiful! The prints are high quality and on lovely thick paper, they are sent in secure tubes and always arrive very quickly. I have displayed the A3 sized prints in A2 sized frames with a border.

We bought this print with Seven Sisters and Cuckmere as they looked so fantastic in the shop at Birling Gap and we love the area. The prints will always remind us of a beautiful place and happy memories. Adam was very helpful in refunding the extra charges on P&P as we should not have been charged the full cost for three.
