There is not much remarkable about the Cerne Abbas man apart from his very large and obvious willy. Perhpas that attracts some visitors. He needs a bit of renovation, but he is not as good as the Long Man of Wilmington, who surprisingly is far...More

Quite who constructed this massive monument is it seems a matter of conjecture. Whoever was responsible created a stunning, and rather indelicate, work of art that always captivates the viewer. There is a car park from which a short walk leads to the best viewing...More

We walked around the Giant but it's best viewed from across the valley. There's a good viewpoint with car parking just outside the village of Cerne Abbas. The viewpoint is also within easy walking distance from the village centre.
