Husthwaite [May. 19th, 2008|08:48 am]
Tony Grist
Driving south, we spotted a road sign pointing to a 12th century church. Ailz wanted a coffee break and I wanted Romanesque arches so Ruth made the turning and we ended up in the village of Husthwaite- which is Saxon for "house in a clearing".

The pub was friendly and there was a grand view from the churchyard of the Kilburn white horse- the most northerly of such hill figures. It isn't an ancient tribal totem. It was created in 1857.

That's what the man who made this one thought. He'd been to visit the famous, prehistoric White Horse at Uffington in the south of England and had come away thinking his local hill needed one too.
