captain sam the whitstable giant

Captain Sam the Whitstable Giant was awakened in the grounds of the Victorian gardens of Whitstable Castle, on the warm and sunny Bank Holiday Sunday, when many hundreds of people, young and old, arrived at the gates to witness this historic event.

Jeanne Harrison, the Sheriff of Canterbury, together with a band of musicians and the Giant's constant companions, a Horse and a Diver, led the crowds of curious well wishers on a hunt through the beautiful wisteria-filled grounds in search of the Giant. There were gasps of delight as the entourage eventually entered the beautiful Rose Gardens to find the magnificent 15 foot tall Giant waiting to welcome his visitors.
