Green Man, 145 Much Park Street

Alternative Addresses:Much Park Street
Much Park St Godiva Procession 1907 2 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 1756 eight soldiers were billeted here. From 1900 Phillips and Marriotts leased this pub for £85 per annum from Mr. H. Colley of Lismore House, 13 North Road, Bristol. He died in 1902 when Miss A. Collet became the owner and rents were paid to Walter Colley at 153 Sherlock Street, Birmingham, for her. In 1907 the lease was renewed for a further 14 years for £100 per annum but in 1920 the pub was sold to Atkinsons brewery for £6,100. In 1926 the license was surrendered on the payment of compensation.
