The Southeast Sights

Long Man of Wilmington

  • Public Art (Mural/Sculpture/Statue)

Updated 05/27/2014

Fodor's Review

Wilmington, 9 miles southwest of Herstmonceux Castle on A27, has a famous landmark that people drive for miles to see. High on the downs to the south of the village (signposted off A27), a 226-foot-tall white figure with a staff in each hand, known as the Long Man of Wilmington, is carved into the chalk. His age is a subject of great debate, but some researchers think he might have originated in Roman times.
