Cerne Abbas Giant Renovation (1)
Cerne Abbas Giant Renovation (1)
The Giant is receiving a face lift seven years after the last one . This involves digging out the top 10cm of chalk and replacing it with bright new gleaming white chalk. The new chalk is tamped down in layers to give a firm surface. This shows part of a rib (left) and the penis (centre) being worked on.
Many thanks to the National Trust Wardens who gave me permission to be on site and photograph them and their volunteer workers.
