Long Man is a civil parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex, England which has replaced the former parishes of Wilmington, and Folkington (probably in 1990). The parish is named after the "Long Man of Wilmington", a chalk figure in the parish.

The parish extends far from the left bank of the modest River Cuckmere where it starts to cut through the South Downs. A second recently named parish, Cuckmere Valley, is immediately south. The A27 major road crosses the parish from west to east.

Long Man covers an area of 16.1 km2 (6.2 sq mi) and had a population of 447 in the UK census of 2011. There is a map of the parish (based on a road map) on a website entitled "East Sussex in Figures".
