I had walked from Avebury on my way to Adam's Grave. I passed it on the way. Very good in that you could get very close to it and also see it from a distance further along the path.

The Alton Barnes horse sits in one of the highest locations in the county, occupying a gully between Milk Hill and Walkers Hill, above the hamlet facing south and is clearly visible from the unclassified road that runs from Horton to Alton Barnes. Precise grid...More
