We made the mistake of climbing up steep muddy paths to stand outside a protective fence and gaze at a grassy meadow. The Giant lays flat and is best seen from the lay-by on the A325. He's worth the effort. An imposing Iron Age nudist who obviously doesn't mind the cold and is happy to brandish his club. Get in... More

Wow! I'm not sure what to say.... It's fenced off so you can't walk up to it so the best place is to go the viewing point the other side of the valley. It's still worth walking up the side of the fencing to the top of the giant hill. There's a footpath and the views are stunning. Unique!

A lovely village to visit. Very nice tea shop and lovely houses to walk past. Had a long walk around the village and countryside surrounding. Not necessary if all you wish to do is see the giant, would be possible to park very close and view without a walk. I'd say walking is recommended as the area is beautiful. Dog... More

We called to see the giant on the way home and to find somewhere to have lunch. When we parked you could not see him for the fog but after giving our dog a quick walk for about 15 minutes it was clear when we got back to the viewing area.

what a splendid specimen, and brought to life as on the side of a steep hill, with a car park than gives you a interrupted view

I have seen the Giant many times but I always take my friends to say hello just to give them a good laugh.

Perhaps being November it is not at its best but when comparing the figure with the likes of the Fovant Badges the giant did not stand out against the background. The white chalk was a dirty shade of green and could only really be seen standing at the side with the sun casting shadows which gave some sort of relief

Interesting chalk figure which would have been more visible had it not been for the long dead grass on the upper reaches of the hill in particular. Still worth a visit if for nothing more than the novelty value.
