Westbury White Horse: The Westbury (or Bratton) White Horse is a hill figure on the escarpment of Salisbury Plain approximately 2.5 km (1.6 miles) east of Westbury in England . Located on the edge of Bratton Downs and lying just below an Iron Age Hill Fort, it is the oldest of several white horses carved in Wiltshire. It was restored in 1778, an action which may have obliterated a previous horse which had occupied the same slope. A contemporary engraving of the 1760s appears to show a horse facing in the opposite direction, and also rather smaller than the present figure. However, there is at present no documentary or other evidence for the existence of a chalk horse at Westbury before the year 1742.
The Westbury White Horse location is part of crop circle history as it was here that there was a surveillance operation covering a period from the July 23 – August 12, 1990 OPERATION BLACKBIRD. The project was aimed at filming a crop circle forming for the first time. This location was on high ground owned by the Ministry of Defence (M.o.D.) overlooking fields where crop circles appeared more regularly than anywhere else on earth, at that time.
