Report a Green Man


Type: Foliage-spewer
Location: Church of All Saints
OS GR: ST 947786
Period: Mediaeval
Medium: Stone
Foliage: Stylised
Mood: Blank, staring
Description

The superb green man inside the church has spoilt us somewhat for the lesser green men on the exterior.  This really quite striking mediaeval foliage-spewer at the east end of the south aisle seems somehow unsatisfactory.  He is surrounded with creeping foliage, staring blankly, mouth gaping, strangely expressionless.

  • Five more green men
  • An immense pig gargoyle
