The team of Dorset County Council’s countryside rangers, including four apprentices and two volunteers, have brought the White Horse, Adonis, back to its former glory by spraying the weed growth and removing the vegetation that blighted it.

The scheduled ancient monument, nestled on the South Dorset Ridgeway within the Dorset AONB, is once again clearly visible.

Cabinet member of the Natural and Built Environment, Cllr Daryl Turner, said that Adonis “is looking better than ever.”
