This  is one of a group of wonderful green men that can be found in All Saints the parish church of Sharrington a Grade I listed building. A church has been recorded here since the 13th century and All Saints’ parish church was once described as a “grand church of great local importance.“ The north and south aisles, transept and porch were taken down in the middle of the 18th century due to a significant reduction in the local population and the resulting loss of wealth.

My thanks to Jennie Miller and Gary Truss for allowing me to reproduce their photographs.
