The Monument on Farley Mount, near Winchester, Hampshire. This pyramidal obelisk commemorates a horse named ‘Beware Chalk Pit’ that won the Hunters Plate at nearby Worthy Down races a year after falling into a chalk pit 25 feet deep. 2 cast iron plaques on the Monument state that the horse is buried under the folly. Sadly the surrounding foliage has been allowed to take over the mound, somewhat spoiling the impact of the obelisk.
