The white horse was first cut in 1780, while the Lansdowne monument was erected in 1845 by the 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne to commemorate his ancestor Sir William Petty. This image was taken before protective netting was placed around the base of the monument to protect the public from falling masonry.
