Ludgershall's green man is placed directly above the pulpit in the parish church, but he is somewhat masked by a splendid brass candelabrum which means he is rather difficult to photograph effectively. He is aged, the sharpness of the carving blurred by the passing years; in fact, with his collapsed nose and sunken eyes he seems somewhat like corpse-like. But he has a fine head of hair, arranged in big curls, and a large, wide mouth from which the foliage flows generously.
He is a classic foliage-spewer, with no lower jaw in evidence.
