Bovey Tracey (Grimspound Morris) Jack-in-the-Green
The wonderful Bovey Tracey (Grimspound Morris) Jack in the Green was spotted at the Green Man Spring Festival in Bovey Tracey yesterday. My thanks to Martyn Hillstead for this brilliant picture and for sending me this link to his video of the event: Bovey Tracey Jack in the Green.
The Bovey Tracey Jack-in-the-Green goes out with Grimspound Morris. He can be seen greeting the Mayday dawn up on Haytor and then afterwards puts in an appearance in Bovey Tracey. I would love to receive more information about this Jack and its history.
If you spot a Jack in the Green please do send me in a picture for us to share on our blog and add to our free online Flickr archive where I hope to be able to add a picture of every Traditional Jack in the Green from every year.
