Plough As the Plough Inn. In modern times the green man is associated with Robin Hood and his men who were supposedly dressed in Lincoln Green Cloth. A cloth called Kendal Green, from its manufacture there, or the lighter Lincoln Green, was used for the clothes of foresters, woodmen and the like from the sixteenth century. A more popular interpretation appears to be a symbol showing the renewal of plant growth each spring. The most common form is a face exuding greenery from its nose, mouth, nostrils and ears. Although it is of heathen origins the figure is commonly found in churches, and the rear door of St John's (Bablake church) in Coventry contains several carved green men. There are others about the city.
In Bradford's Coventry Survey of 1748-49, this pub occupied the site of the PLOUGH, London Road. In 1761 and 1825 it is mentioned in leases of a property outside New Gate (lying between a way leading to Whitefriars Mill on the north, Charterhouse Leys and the Green Man Inn to the south, the river to the east, the London Road to the west).
