This foliate head is on the string course on the exterior of the north aisle. Chiseldon's excellent church guide by Sheila Passmore tells us that the north or Draycot aisle was rebuilt in the 16th century, so we may deduce that this green man dates from that century also.
He looks down on the observer with a rather superior expression, a slight sneer or smirk lifting one corner of his mouth. And he may well look self-satisfied, for he is a very fine example of his type.
