> We (the Cooper family) moved into John Little's house (the Pantiles, Chapel Lane, Uffington) in 1988. We were farmers just beneath the White Horse at Sower Hill farm. If you would like any more info please e/mail
DEAR DAVID: I WAS THRILLED TO SEE A REPLY. PLEASE WRITE TO ME AS I DO NOT HAVE E-MAIL. I AM WRITING THIS WHERE I WORK. I AM A TEMPORARY EMPLOYEE HERE AND IT'S MY LAST DAY AT THIS ASSIGNMENT. I HAVE A COMPUTER AT HOME BUT DO NOT HAVE E MAIL YET. I HOPE TO HAVE IT SOMETIME NEXT YEAR WHEN I MOVE TO THE EAST COAST. I VISITED UFFINGTON IN AUGUST 1997. MY HUSBAND AND I STAYED IN A NICE BED AND BREAKFAST INN JUST BELOW THE HORSE IN THE VILLAGE OF WOOLSTONE. A MR. BATTY IS THE OWNER. I WENT TO ST. MARY'S CHURCH AND VISITED MR JOHN LITTLE'S GRAVE. I LEFT SOME FLOWERS. I DID CORRESPONDE WITH MRS. JOAN LITTLE AFTER MR. LITTLE'S DEATH, BUT AFTER SHE MOVED TO SOMMERSET NEAR HER DAUGHTER, SHE WROTE ONCE MORE AND DOESN'T REPLY TO MY LETTERS. I'VE WRITTEN HER TWICE. IT COULD BE THAT SHE IS NOT WELL. MY FACINATION WITH THE UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE IS STILL STRONG. MRS. LITTLE GAVE ME A GREEN PIN OR BROACH WITH THE UFFINGTON HORSE PICTURED ON IT AND THE DATE OF IT'S ORIGIN. I HAVE THE BOOK CALLED WHITE HORSES AND OTHER HILL FIGURES AND HAVE SEVERAL ARTICLES AND POSTCARDS WITH THE UFFINGTON HORSE AND OTHER CHALK HORSES. I LOVE THE UFFINGTON AREA AND LOVE IT'S RURAL BEAUTY. MY HUSBAND IS FROM TOTTENHAM ORIGINALLY AND WE TRY AND VISIT ENGLAND EVERY COUPLE OF YEARS. I WOULD LOVE TO WRITE TO SOMEONE IN UFFINGTON WHO ALSO SHARES A FACINATION OF THE UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE. THEY WILL HAVE TO CORRESPONDE THRU WRITTEN LETTERS FOR NOW. I HOPE TO HEAR FROM SOMEONE SOON. DAVID, DO YOU STILL LIVE IN MR. LITTLES HOUSE. I'M ASKING THIS BECAUSE I ACTUALLY WROTE TO THE LITTLES OLD ADDRESS AND THE PRESENT OWNER A COLLEGE PROFESSOR AND HIS WIFE WROTE ME BACK. THEY WERE GOING TO BE AWAY IN IRELAND WHEN WE LAST VISITED UFFINGTON. I HAVE THEIR LETTER AT HOME SO I DON'T KNOW THEY NAMES OFF HAND. I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU OR OTHERS IN UFFINGTON OR THE SURROUNDING VILLAGES WHO WOULD LIKE TO WRITE TO ME. I AM AMERICAN AND WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM OTHERS IN THE UFFINGTON AREA. MY ADDRESS IS; JOYCE GRANVILLE 2847 GARROW DRIVE, ANTIOCH, CALIFORNIA 94509 USA I LIVE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA NEAR SAN FRANCISCO.
