The Long Man of Wilmington

Hill Figure


Long Man site vandalised

Within the past few months, hunt - supporting vandals have painted the slogan "NO BAN", in letters which must be at least 8 feet high, roughly 200m to the left of the long man of wilmington. Unlike previous "pranks" involving paint, this has been done by burning the grass away completely, I think they may have used creosote. This crass piece of political graffiti, executed by individuals who claim to love and respect the countryside, may be visible for years to come unless some sort of re-turfing occurs. I'm on to the powers that be to find out more, will keep y'all posted...
