A South West historian has called for the recreation of two former historic landmarks in Plymouth.
Todd Gray believes the carved giants could be a tourist attraction
For hundreds of years, two Cerne Abbas-like giants sat carved into the city's Hoe foreshore.
Todd Gray, from Exeter University, believes they were the focus of May Day celebrations up until the early 1600s when they fell into disrepair.
He wants them restored as a major tourist attraction and says they could once again be central to a festivity.
Dr Gray has written to Plymouth City Council chief executive Mike Robinson with his ideas.
The council has confirmed the approach from Dr Gray and said it was considering its response.
The Cerne Abbas giant in Dorset is the largest hillfigure in Britain at 180 feet high.
