In search of the White Horse at Kilburn


Scheduled for Release on Wednesday 28th February 2024

Join Paul, June & Gemma with Luna & Elsa as they all go in search of The White Horse in Yorkshire!

Britain's largest white horse in surface area situated on the SSW facing steep slope of Roulston Scar. It was designed and financed by Thomas Taylor, a Victorian businessman, and was cut in 1857. A native of Kilburn, he worked for a London merchant. He had seen the famous chalk hill figures of southern England and wanted to create something similar for his home village.

The White Horse is 314ft long and 228ft high and about 20 people could stand on the grass island, which forms the eye, though walking on the horse is now strongly discouraged.

Now available to watch:
