New Sighting – Chantry, Somerset

Somerset Chantry Holy Trinity 2

My Thanks to David Rawlins for adding two previously unreported green men to the gazetteer.  The Green Men are on misericords in the choir stalls of Holy Trinity Church, Chantry in Somerset (BA11 3LJ).

 Chantry Church was built in 1846 and designed by Gilbert Scott. The carvings are of very high quality, as is all the work in the Church. Holy Trinity Church has eight misericords all told.
