A Giant from Cambridgeshire in England. His name as All Paunch means ‘Having a huge belly’, and it was said that his teeth were each the size of a man’s head. He was a formidable warrior and called people to challenge him in single handed combat. He would duel with his opponents at nigh where he was able to inflict injuries with his magical powers. A chalk carving of him was made on a hill at Wandlebury on top of an ancient foundation of an Iron Age building. This chalk arriving was visible until the 18th century. Some believe that the chalk carving was of Gogmagog after the Gogmagog Hills that it was found on.
