The Long Man of Wilmington: "While the carving of white horses into chalk slopes is known as leucippotomy, the rarer art of cutting hill figures in human form is sometimes referred to as gigantony. In Britain, there are only two of them of any size, note or antiquity. There is the mystifying Cerne Giant and there is this athletic fellow standing 235ft high on a steep South Downs incline in east Sussex, holding a staff in each of his outstretched hands." www.bradtguides.com
Michelham Priory, Hailsham, East Sussex - The Augustine Priory of the Holy Trinity was founded at Michelham in 1229. The Priory was dissolved in the 1537 dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII. The house was sold to Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset. It was then sold to James Gwynne in 1896 & was where his children Rupert, Roland & Violet grew up. The property remained in private hands into the 20th century, when it was restored by the Sussex architect & antiquarian, Walter Godfrey.
