|THE LONG MAN OF WILMINGTON||Castles & Historic Monuments|
|Windover Hill, Wilmington, East Sussex|
The Long Man of Wilmington, mysterious guardian of the South Downs, has baffled archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years.
The Long Man of Wilmington is situated 6 miles north-west of Eastbourne.
The Long Man may be reached by public footpaths to the base and the top of the figure and interpretation boards are located at the car park and at the bottom of the hill showing details of these.
The rights of way to the base of the figure are reasonably easy for walkers, but are probably not suitable for wheelchairs.
