The old reliigion - just in case

Ancient religious beliefs stayed around for many centuries - and just in case, most of our parish churches contain some reference to the old gods. This is not the original paint colour- once, what we now call a "green man", this reminder of former times has been gilded - yes real gold - in case he should be offended at being forgotten! Well you can't be too careful can you? He is to be found high up in a forgotten corner of the roof timbers  of the parish church waiting to be reawakened by his old worshippers.
