Pictures of The Long Man

in the town of Wilmington, in the county of East Sussex

About The Long Man

Where he comes from nobody knows, nor does anyone know the identity of this 240 foot figure of a man carved into the side of a hill above the village.

Numerous theories abound, some say he is from the medieval period, others think him to be a relic of Saxon times, and some say he was carved by the people of the Iron-Age.

Puzzling as he is, he remains one of Wilmington's most interesting features
