This area has never failed to capture my imagination - whether winter or summer- and so this December. Views are stunning and if you haven't been here then you have missed one of the most attractive and scenic places in the North of England. Good walking country.

You can park up at the visitor centre, but better still is go to the gliding club, park for free, do the walk and have a nice cuppa in the club café.

Follow the marker signs to the top of the white horse from the visitor centre Sutton bank. Then walk down the steep stairs to the lower car park and walk back through the woods .

We took a detour to drive to see the white horse at Kilburn. However, we were disappointed as we could not see the complete image of the horse from the carpark. We could not see the horse head at all, unsure if it is covered by the vegetation.

Visited with my dad whilst on the disabled route from the sutton bank centre, he enjoyed learning about the white horse but you couldn't see much of it from his point of view, he still enjoyed the trip around though. On an unrelated note the post below this really ought to be deleted as there has been some slight mistake... More

The White Horse was the focal point of a circular walk we did from Oldstead. Sadly the weather deteriorated about 20 minutes before we got to the white horse - high winds and heavy rain - so we weren't seeing it in the best light. But when we arrived, sodden and bedraggled - we couldn't believe the extent of the... More
