LETTER: Did Long Man go tooled-up?

In the 1940s my memory of the Long Man of Wilmington is that the figure featured a scythe and rake at the top of his poles and I seem to remember that both feet pointed outwards. The figure was cut in the chalk – no breeze blocks or whitewash.

Could we have the original rake, scythe and foot restored, in keeping with the original. I’m sure volunteers will help with restoration.
