All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Green Man or not Green Man

We’ve recently updated the Company of the Green Man flickr site to pro status to give us unlimited space for all our pictures which are coming in fast (please keep them coming!) It also enables us to organise them more efficiently and I hope you’ll like what we’ve done.

There are now over 268 pictures on our own site and the Company group pool is now showing over 425 pictures!! They have been organised by county as well as various other sets including: Green Women, Green Animals, Green Skeletons and a group I’m hoping everyone will have a look at and give us feedback on: Green Man or not Green Man. These are all those images that we would  like some help deciding whether they should be included as Green Men or not, something that is not always that easy to decide. Please feel free to have a look at them and either comment on the flickr feedback, on this blog or you can always e-mail me at

    Gosh, is it or isn’t it a Green Man? When you have travelled miles, tramped across fields, and back, to fetch the Key from the last cottage in the village you really want to find a Green Man and it is easy to be convinced. I have looked at the photos and my gut instincts are as follows:-

    Kilpeck NO
    St Mary Radcliffe YES
    Glos. NO
    Bradford on Avon YES Foliate Mask
    Loxley NO
    Earthlights (1) Debatable (2) YES
    Wells Debatable
    Kent YES
    Buckley NO
    Calne YES
    South Morden NO
    Gt Coxwell Too Eroded
    East Hagbourne NO
    Burford (1) YES (2) NO (3) NO
    Longley Marsh YES
    Eynesford NO .

    When I find a ‘debatable’ I list it anyway for other people to make up their own minds. In general I am against being too purist, there are many different GM hunters, so I say list the lot and let the viewer decide, maybe it will encourage people to go and see for themselves.
