Description

Holt's late-Victorian church, designed by C.E. Ponting in the Gothic style, has two green men.  This first one is on the north side of the church exterior, over a down-pipe.  It is a standard foliate head in appearance, but has an air of patient boredom about it.

  • A green beast-head on the south exterior
