Stories, information and comments from White Horse Hill climbers
Story by Tom Will from Faringdon, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, submitted on 28/08/2012
Starting from the junction with the B4507, you are hit straight away with a gradient at approximately 20%. This gradient eases slightly past Dragon Hill itself, with a short section of less than 5% to get your breath back on. The gradient then kicks back up again to about 20% for the section just under the White horse. From there, an easy gradient of about 5% is maintained up to the disabled car park, which marks the top of the hill.
Should you choose to climb from Uffington, along Broad way, be aware that Broad way is itself a climb, but with an easy gradient of about 5%.
