Thanks for this intriguing bit on the Greenman. I've been fascinated by them for years and lobbied incessantly at my former place of employment to market examples of them. (garden center) Answer was no (too pagan)
With luck I'll return to England and this time see some actual pubs (while there remains an England and alcohol remains legal) and Cathedrals.

Very interesting. I was rather numb and vague about the green man, despite having drunk in a pub of that name in Marylebone. And I think of it as a bit sinister, mainly because of the TV adaptation of this novel.
