Malmesbury is a market town in the northern part of the large county of Wiltshire.
Ride a white horse
The wide open landscape of Wiltshire features a number of white horses carved into hillsides, not quite enough to make a full herd, but enough to be intriguing. The white effect is given by the chalk hillside shining through, after the top soil has been removed. The Cherhill Horse can be seen from the A4 trunk road, and the Marlborough White Horse is the smallest of the Wiltshire carvings. The oldest white horses are carved out near Westbury and Uffington (Oxfordshire). These possibly originated to celebrate the victory of Saxon King Alfred in 878 A.D. (he of the burnt cakes fame) when he beat off a rabble of invading horned heathens from alien lands across the North Sea.
Cooking up a plan
It was said that Alfred was taking refuge from the war-snorting warriors from overseas, with a swineherd and his wife, and the wife asked Alfred to keep an eye on the cakes she was cooking. She instructed him to turn them at the right moment whilst she had to go off somewhere, but Alfred forgot and the cakes burnt. Alfred the Great got a very unfair press over those cakes. In fact, he was deep in thought. A great strategist and thinker, he saved his timorous knock-kneed countrymen from the sour-breath Viking invaders. He is the only English king to earn the title “Great“.
