From The National Trust's Website 01/04/17:
The Uffington White Horse is one of England’s largest and best-known chalk figures. Experts believe the horse to be around 3,000 years old, but a recent geophysical survey has revealed that it is not the only ancient work of art in the area.
The survey showed the remains of a second stylised figure on a nearby hillside, which has been christened the Uffington White Duck. Standing at around 360 feet tall, we think that this figure may be the ancient symbol of a local tribe who venerated wild mallards.
Our plan will be to restore this great animal, so eventually you’ll be able to see the incredible Duck outline, just as you can with the Uffington Horse. Visitors will be able to see the two animals side by side.
