As you will see from the posts below I’ve received pictures of a number of Jacks for which I am extremely grateful, but please do keep them coming. I’m more than happy to receive multiple pictures of each Jack for our online photographic archive to help record these wonderful events. It is my intention to create an archive of pictures of every Jack from every year.

  • The Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green
  • The Hever Castle Jack-in-the-Green
  • Kentwell Hall (Suffolk) Jack O’Green

And if you know of another Jack in the Green that I’ve missed please do get in touch.

I’m extremely grateful to Rose Blakeley for sending me her wonderful and incredibly atmospheric photographs of  this years Hastings Traditional Jack in the Green that accompany this post.
