Subject: RE:UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE
I WOULD LIKE TO WRITE TO ANYONE WHO LIVES IN ENGLAND NEAR THE VILLAGES OF UFFINGTON, FARRINGDON OR WANTAGE. I AM FACINATED WITH THE UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE. I HAVE VISITED THE SITE TWICE AS RECENTLY AS AUGUST 1997. YES I'VE STOOD IN THE EYE OF THE HORSE IN 1980 AND MADE A WISH AND IT CAME TRUE AS I MET MY HUSBAND WHO IS BRITISH. I FIRST LEARNED OF THE WHITE HORSE BY ATTENDING A PRODUCTION OF THE MUSICAL "TOM BROWN'S SCHOOL DAYS" AT THE SHAFTSBURY THEATRE IN LONDON IN THE EARLY 1970'S. THERE WAS A DISPLAY IN THE LOBBY ALL ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE. I WROTE TO THE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON THE DISPLAU AND THEY PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH A LOCAL UFFINTON RESIDENT NAMED MR. JOHN LITTLE WHO WAS A RETIRED POSTMAN AND WHO KNEW THE HISTORY OF THE WHITE HORSE. I WAS INVITED BY HIS AND HIS WIFE TO VISIT THEM AND TO TOUR UFFINGTON AND THE WHITE HORSE. MR. LITTLE IS NOW DESEASED AND I WOULD LIKE TO CORRESPONDE WITH SOMEONE IN THE UFFINGTON AREA. I WOULD ESPECIALLY LIKE TO FIND OUT IF THERE ARE ANY OLD BLACK AND WHITE PRINTS OF UFFINGTON SHOWING THE WHITE HORSE AND SURROUNDING AREA. I WONDER IF THESE ARE POSSIBLY AVAILABLE AT THE MUSEUM IN WANTAGE. IF ANYONE CAN HELPH THIS I WOULD BE MOST GRATEFUL. YOU CAN WRITE TO ME AT :JOYCE GRANVILLE, 2847 GARROW DRIVE, ANTIOCH, CA 94509 USA.
