The Green Man and his Pub

*

Where I grew up, in the 80s, this was my ‘local’… ‘The Green Man’ pub in the Hertfordshire village of Great wymondley.

I didn’t think much of the name back then, but now, having an  interest in folklore, it seemed ripe for investigation… 

The origin of the name is not as simple as it may first appear… and leads me down the road of pub history, along with further research into the green man as many of us know it, the foliate face carvings we often see in churches.
