Long Man is a civil parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex, England which includes the villages of Wilmington, Milton Street and Folkington. The parish is named after the Long Man of Wilmington, a 69.2m chalk figure, which is located within the parish.GeographyThe parish is situated in the River Cuckmere valley, where it cuts through the South Downs. The A27 trunk road crosses the parish from west to east. The Wealdway long distance footpath also passes through the parish.GovernanceThe lowest level of government is the Long Man parish council which meets once a month. The parish council is responsible for local amenities such as the provision of litter bins, bus shelters and allotments. They also provide a voice into the district council meetings. For elections, the parish is divided into three wards, Wilmington (four seats), Milton Street (two seats) and Folkington (one seat). The election on 3 May 2007 was uncontested in all three wards with only one candidate standing in the Milton Street ward.Wealden District council provides the next level of government with services such as refuse collection, planning consent, leisure amenities and council tax collection.
