The car park and information area is at such an angle and low down that you just can't see the giant in his full glory. If you are in the area then stop by but I wouldn't bother going specially just for this, unless you're...More

I was quite underwhelmed by the visit really, as the left side of the monument is good but the right side is not clear.

Being in the area we had to visit the Giant. An interesting wee bit of history and worth a slight detour to take a look at

Poor old boy looks like he's suffered from this Summer's weather. Needs a drop of water and a bit of TLC!

Lovely to see this bit of history but it could really do with a good tidy up. Outlines greying, a bit grassy in places but he is getting old! Nice to see though & Cerne Abbas was lovely.
