This fine green man is one of two very fine peepers on this impressive Victorian-Gothick monument to the Rev. Thomas Henry Hume (died 1834), designed by Hopper. The monument itself is on the west wall of the south transept.
The green man seems to prefigure the art nouveau style with its androgynous, rather elfin face, peeping out from its frame of trefoil leaves. You will find it at the bottom of the monument, to the left of the main tablet. A very nice example of its type.
