We are delighted to offer another of our distinctive designs which grace our coasters.

EXCLUSIVE- ANCIENT LONG MAN of WILMINGTON.

This coaster represents how the OLD LONG MAN OF WILMINGTON was depicted on a map of the mid to late 1700's. He is certainly very different in appearance to the Hill Figure that we see today. It may well be that Victorian sensibilities "cleaned him up", but we cannot be certain of this.

The Long Man of Wilmington, is our nearest neighbour in terms of Hill Figures, located about 6 miles from where we live. He is 227 feet tall, and designed to look in proportion when viewed from below. We have coasters with the image which is visible on the hill today for sale also.

He is one of only 2 human forms of Hill Figures located in England, the other being The Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset, we also have coasters of him!

He may date from the 16th or 17th Century, 

There is a belief that he is much older than the 16th/17th centuries, and is of Druid/Shamanic origins, to quote Professor John North, he wrote " that during the centuries around 3480 BC the figure would have been positioned to mark the constellation Orion's movement across the ridge above it. The figure may have been a manifestation of a Neolithic astral religion."

The Long Man of Wilmington still has his part to play among modern day Pagans. At dawn, on May Day, the Long Man Morris Men dance at the foot of the Long Man. He also plays host to Neo-Pagan rituals on Sundays closest to the eight Pagan Festivals through the year.

Measures 4 1/2  x 4 1/2 inches.

Solid leather coaster made from traditional oak bark tanned English leather. 

This heavy duty leather coaster is wide enough to take larger glasses at 4 1/2 inches/11cm diameter. and thick enough to hold it's shape at 1/4 inch/6mm thick.

Ideal for protecting your table top from the effects of your favourite tipple.

These can also be decorated with your own custom motif (minimum order required). Please contact us for further details.
