17/03/2016 - In a landscape full of tumuli, this bowl barrow stands out. Crossing Wilmington Hill from Jevington to Alfriston is a lovely walk. Just west of the top, this barrow is visible from a good distance away. Nice ditch and even though it's been dug into in the past I loved the shape of the barrow. Great view as well. Completely forgot about the long man whilst there as I was in a bit of a daydream. Be good to go back someday as I would of liked to have seen it. Another fine day out walking and looking at old stuff. thelonious Posted by thelonious

I am adding some sites on Windover Hill, the site of the Long Man of Wilmington. These photographs were taken nearly 4 years ago and I have only just dug them up!

The landscape above the Long Man is well worth a visit for those who don't mind shapes in the grass with no interesting rocks cluttering up the place. We don't really do rocks in this neck of the woods.

(See the Goldstone, in Brighton, for a notable exception. The only megalith to have had a football ground named after it!)

The fact that a large Neolithic Long Barrow and a large Bronze Age Round Barrow seem to be aligned with the space on which the Long Man now stands is something that I find intriguing. While the Naturalistic figure of the Long Man could only be Roman at the very oldest, I believe there to have been something on this site for a very long time. If only we could see what were the original designs on this hill.

17/03/2016 - Every hill seems to have a tumuli on it round here. This one on Wilmington Hill, ain't much different looking to the rest but the location is fine and the walk to it is good. A place to stop and just sit by. No need to rush the view. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Wilmington Hill Barrow Cemetery (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) — Fieldnotes

This cemetery is not marked on OS maps. It lies around the trig-station on the summit of Wilmington Hill, consisting of one definite round barrow to the west of it and two more possible barrows to the east. Cursuswalker Posted by Cursuswalker

Windover Hill Eastern Round Barrow (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

This barrow is the usual size for a round barrow in this part of Sussex. It is worthy of note for lying so close to the Bowl Barrow and apparently in line with the eastern stave of the Long Man. Cursuswalker Posted by Cursuswalker
