Near the White Horse is the Lansdowne Monument. erected in 1845 by the 3rd Marquess of Landsdowne to commemorate his ancestor Sir William Petty. You can walk up to both and see also the Oldbury Castle Hillfort.”

“The 29 locks have a rise of 237 feet in 2 miles (72 m in 3.2 km) or a 1 in 44 gradient. The locks come in three groups: the lower seven locks, Foxhangers Wharf Lock to Foxhangers Bridge Lock, are spread over 3⁄4 mile (1.2 km); the next sixteen locks form a steep flight in a straight line up the hillside and are designated as a scheduled monument. Because of the steepness of the terrain, the pounds between these locks are very short. As a result, fifteen of them have unusually large sideways-extended pounds, to store the water needed to operate them. A final six locks take the canal into Devizes. The locks take 5–6 hours to traverse in a boat. Park in the pay and display carpark and either walk up the locks to Devizes ( there is a cafe at the top of the locks) or walk down the locks as far as you like. You can walk all the way to Bradford-on-Avon, or further to Bath, stopping at some welcoming canal-side pubs. We recommend the Barge at Seend.”
