The newest of Wiltshire’s White Horses, this equine figure in Devizes was cut in 1999 to mark the new millennium. It is located on Roundway Hill to the north of Devizes. Officially known as the Devizes Millennium White Horse, this figure is the eighth white horse figure cut into a hillside in Wiltshire. It measures 45.7 meters (150 feet) long and 45 meters (148 feet) high.

The Devizes White Horse was cut at the side of a previous white horse figure that had been cut in the mid-19th century. Without regular maintenance though, grass grew in around the figure, and by the 1920s it had largely disappeared.
