Report a Green Man

Type: Foliage-spewer, beast-head
Location: Church of St Anne
OS GR: ST 938679
Period: Victorian (1856)
Medium: Stone
Foliage: Stylised
Mood: Bestial but benevolent
A curly-haired lion

This foliage-spewer is a cat-like beast with a single curl in the middle of his forehead.  He can be found on the west corner of the porch, and like all five of the green men on this church, must date from its building in 1856, from a design by Mr Gabriel of Bristol.

Also at Bowden Hill

  • Four more green men
  • Sir William Sharington's conduit house opposite the church
  • A very fine viewpoint over Lacock and the valley
