Parked at Priory car park and as I was a bit tight for time I jogged along the trail opposite to the base of the Long Man. Then a leg pumping burst straight up the steeper part of the hill gained height quickly followed by a gentler approach to the trig and high point just beyond. Would like to have had a little more time to relax and explore the area.Gerry the Ranger07/08/2020
2.5 mile circular from car park at Wilmington, followed path to The Holt woods and the followed track marked on map which is actually a path up to summit, descended via the Long Man back to car park, a few people about, far reaching views on this sunny but very windy day. Later that day bagged Mount Caburn, Cliffe Hill, Wolstonbury Hill and Chanctonbury Ring.DanTrig05/07/2020

Here for the trigpoint but made sure I stood on the high spot too! Parked at the Long Man and Priory car park in Wilmington (N50° 48.977' E0° 11.406'), lovely spot. Then walked firstly up to the Long Man and then up to the ridge to the trigpoint. Lovely trig and walk.thejackrustles22/04/2018

Walk up from Wilmington on very hot day. With Cal, Fred and Bob.Ham and Skate13/08/2017
Wilmington hill is quite nice, but the day can be made even better by starting from Alfriston, climbing Wilmington, Willingdon, Beachy Head (crowded), and Belle Tout. The best part of the walk is the continuation over the Seven Sisters, with superb views from the glorious white cliffs. Pub lunch in Jevington and tea and fizzy pop at the Belle Tout cafe were very welcome, given the blistering heat.Gill05/07/2017

Parked by the church at Folkington and then with Helen & Molly we walked West to climb up steeply to the summit and Trigpoint before continuing on over the Long Man and then circled round under the hill figure following the Wealdway and back to the church. We saw a Falconer sitting high on the slope flying a Harris Hawk.JohRvs27/11/2016

The first of four Marilyn's today. Parked at the Long Man car park ( free ) and crossed the road straight onto the footpath to the Long Man. Went past the dry dew pond and through a few gates to the top of the hill. Visited the trig point and then the summit knoll nearby before returning by way of a circular route back to the dew pond and the footpath.Peterb12/10/2015

Parked below the long man in Wilmington. Walked to Alfriston across the fields (path behind the church), which was busy because the annual fair was in progress (lots of vintage cars). Called in at the Church (sadly renovated by the Victorians) and the clergy mans house which is older than Bodium castle (1430s). Followed the SD way to the top which was very peaceful as it's a long way from a car park. Excellent views. Descended path NNE to pick up the path back to the foot of the long man. Wilmington Church yard has a very old Yew tree possibly 1600 years old. An excellent half day walk but I would also recommend the full South downs way circuit over the seven sisters as one of the finest walks in the country.mindlessflogger23/08/2014
