Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:
The Long Man of Wilmington is 72m (235ft) long & is designed to look in proportion when viewed from below. Originally thought to originate in the Iron Age or Neolithic period, an investigation in 2003 has shown the figure to originate in the 16th or 17th century. At first, the figure appears to have been carved from the underlying chalk but closer inspection reveals it to be formed from white-painted breeze blocks & lime mortar.
