The Uffington white horse is undoubtedly Britain’s oldest and most famous hill figure, which has recently been dated at 3000 years old by the Oxford Archeological Unit. The horse is unique in its features, some believe it represents the mythical dragon that St. George slain on the adjacent Dragon hill or even his horse. However others believe it represents a Celtic horse goddess Epona
Waylands Smithy is a fine and atmospheric Neolithic chambered long barrow 2km (1.25 miles) along the Ridgeway from the Uffington White Horse: it was once believed to be the habitation of the Saxon smith-god Wayland. The barrow seen today covers an earlier burial structure . The first monument here was built between 3590 and 3555 BC.
