Fox and Hounds  

Birthplace of Thomas Hughes, author of 'Tom Brown's Schooldays'. Uffington is a large village of clunch-and-thatch cottages which stands beneath White Horse Hill with its enormous 360-foot-long horse. The pub is a friendly place serving Morrells ales, though for how much longer we wonder. Food is served lunch and evenings and is traditional and popular. The chalk horse is over two thousand years old, it was reputedly carved by the Dobunni, an Iron Age Celtic tribe, to mark the southern boundary of their territory. Wayland Smith's Cave is about one-and-a-half miles south-west along the ancient road known as the Ridgeway. It is a famous long barrow where one's horse would be shod overnight by Wayland, the Norse Smith-God, himself provided that a coin of sufficient value were left on a nearby stone. The church, dating from 1150, boasts an unusual octagonal tower.
