This very unusual green man dates from the sixteenth century and is carved on a panel of Spanish chestnut which was said originally to have been from the Calley family pew. It is now part of the choir stalls in the chancel: look in the centre of the stall on the south side.
Although datable to the sixteenth-century, this fellow has an eighteenth-century air with his rolled hairstyle and a hat that looks almost like a tricorne.
