It’s been another great year for sightings of the traditional Jack-in-the-Green across the UK. As this post is published I can confirm that so far this year at least 14 Jacks have been sighted including:
The Rochester/Bluebell Hill Jack-in-the-Green
The Oxford Jack-in-the-Green
The Dead Horse Morris Jack-in-the-Green
The Fowlers Troop Jack-in-the-Green
The Highworth Jack-in-the-Green
The Bristol Jack-in-the-Green
The Knutsford Jack-in-the-Green
The Guildford Bush
The Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green
The Hastings Traditional Jack-in-the-Green
The Whitstable Jack-in-the-Green
The Cheltenham Sweeps Jack-in-the-Green
The Brentham Jack-in-the-Green
And a brand new Jack-in-the-Green went out this year in Chagford, Devon
It is also possible that there may still be sightings of the Yaxley Jack-in-the-Green this year.
My thanks to everyone who contacted me to confirm sightings and to send in some wonderful photos for our free online archive. Thanks to Rose Blakely for the fantastic pictures accompanying this post of this years Hastings Traditional Jack-in-the-Green.
More photos of this years Jacks will appear on this blog in the coming weeks and every picture will be added to our online Flickr archive.
