UPPER WHITE HORSE STONE

DESCRIPTION + /

A large upright irregular sarsen measuring circa 3 metres by 1.6 metres, and 0.7 metres thick. It has been suggested to represent the remains of a Neolithic burial chamber, although no evidence other than its upright position and the relative proximity of other Neolithic monuments has ever been offered in support. There appears to be little pre-20th century reference to the site. The name reflects the fact that the stone appears to have inherited the legendary associations of its now-destroyed near neighbour, the original "White Horse Stone" (TQ 76 SE 12).
