My thanks to Ruth Kenyon for sending in these wonderful tongue poking Green Men bosses from St Peter Mancroft Church in the Market Place in the centre of Norwich. After the two Cathedrals it is the largest church in Norfolk and was built between 1433 and 1455. These bosses were previously unreported probably because the area is so dark. They have now been added to our Gazetteer.

I’m always grateful for any new sightings, photographs or verifications for the Gazetteer and the Flickr photographic archive. Please use the contact tab above to get in touch.

Any new sightings or verifications are added to the gazetteer and the finder/verifiers name is always detailed (unless they prefer to remain anonymous).

Copyright for any pictures added to our Flickr archive always remains with the original photographer as does full control over how the pictures are used. I will never use anybody’s images for any commercial use without full written permission. occasionally I get requests to use pictures for books, magazines etc. and these requests are passed directly on to the original photographer so that they can benefit from their own work.

  1. I wonder if they were carved by ship carvers since they bear a resemblance to cat’s head carvings ?
