This enigmatic green man can be found on St Peter & St Paul Church in Brokendish, Norfolk. The church stands on high ground above the Waveney Valley just west of the main village. There has been a Church on the site of St Peter and St Paul since before Doomsday.
The main structure of the Church is medieval, dating from the 14th century and there are traces of the earlier building – late Saxon and early Norman. The exterior is a typical flint faced East Anglian building with a square tower housing a ring of six bells. The interior was restored in the 1840’s and is regarded, then and now, as a fine example of a gothic Victorian interior.
My thanks to Jennie Miller and Gary Truss for allowing me to reproduce their photographs.
