The Long Man of Wilmington has long been a mystery. The strange figure, cut into the north slopes of the South Downs above the rural village of Wilmington with his two staves, has baffled experts for years.
Who is he? What is he doing there? I’m Richard Vobes, TVs Bald Explorer and I am in search of answers and, strangely enough, beer. There is a fabulous brewery round the corner from the Long Man, of the same name, and I am keen to try their brew and discover their history. Care to join me?
