White Horse Project Up For An Award
8:48am 8th August 2013
The determined efforts of local volunteers to restore The Osmington White Horse are being recognised in a national award ceremony.
The project is one of five competing in the Best Rescue category of the English Heritage Angel Awards backed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The chalk hill figure sculpted in 1808 is believed to be a tribute to King George III.
TV series Challenge Anneka mistakenly covered the landmark with 160 tonnes of Limestone Scalpings - which were removed by volunteers in time for last year's Olympic Games.
