The people of Pilton and the surrounding area turned out in force today (Saturday, July 20) for the annual Green Man Day.

It all began with a parade from Barnstaple Square featuring hundreds of colourfully dressed people, plenty of drums and the cry of 'follow us to Pilton'.

Once there, the parade made its way along a Pilton Street thronged with thousands of people, together with plenty of stalls, live music and revelry.

In the grounds of Pilton House the Green Man Pageant was enacted for the first time that day as young and old put on a show depicting the seasons, the fertility legend behind the Green Man and the way the church came into the mix later.

Alongside characters representing autumn, winter, the queen of May and others were the Green Man himself and the Prior of Pilton.

There were also plenty of stalls along the street and in the Pilton House grounds, many raising money for local good causes.
