Uffington, Oxfordshire by Phil Selby Below Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire is a dramatic sweep of a steep sided dry valley, known as the Manger. Ripples in the western side are known as the ‘Giants Stairs’ and were created by scouring melt-water during the retreat of the last Ice Age. On the eastern side stands Dragon Hill, a small roundish hill with a flattened top. In legend it is said to be the site where St. George, England’s patron saint, slew the dragon.
