BRATTON CAMP AND WHITE HORSE, Westbury, Wiltshire. Aerial view. Below an Iron Age hill fort, enclosing a much earlier long barrow, stands the Westbury White Horse. Cut into the hillside in 1778, this replaced an older horse, possibly commemorating King Alfred's nearby victory over the Vikings

Wroughton, Wiltshire US_7PH_GP_LOC209_V_5004

WROUGHTON, Wiltshire. This vertical photograph (taken in 1944 by the US Army Air Force) shows Barbury Castle hillfort, RAF Wroughton (centre), and the village of Wroughton. Wear lines indicate Barbury Castle and the Ridgeway have been used as a thoroughfare by military traffic. There are a number of aircraft in holding areas around the airfield, probably awaiting repairs. Most of the hangars are still extant and now in use by the Science Museum
