Folkington is a small village and former parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex, England. It is a short distance east of another village named Wilmington. The two villages and their parishes have been combined in the latter part of the 20th century to become the parish of Long Man, named after a 69.2-metre (227 ft) chalk figure cut into the turf in the parish.

The probable date of the merger was 1990, assuming that it was done at the same time as the establishment of Cuckmere Valley immediately to the south.

Folkington's church is dedicated to St Peter ad Vincula.
