David Risley sent us this picture of his latest manifestation of the Greenman at the Lions part Twelfth Night festival that took place on 4th Jan. For this festival the Holly man, his winter guise, was rowed up the Thames and landed at the Bankside where much Wassailing ensued. The picture is by Damian Frost.

New Green Man

Well done to Colin Harris who discovered this Green Man at Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire. I’d love to know who created this Green Man, if anyone has any more information please do get in touch.

Jennie Miller & Gary Truss joined the Company of the Green Man back in January of 2011 and since then have provided us with a constant flow of the most wonderful pictures of Green Men. I’ve been adding their pictures to our Flickr archive regularly but to ensure that everyone gets a chance to see these remarkable Green Men (and Women) I’m going to try and post their pictures regulary on our blog.

The first picture is from St Johns Church in North Bovey, Devonshire.
