Aschaffenburg

Aschaffenburg is in Bavaria, although the inhabitants consider themselves to be Franconians. This tiny town boasts a castle as well as the Stiftskirche.

Stiftskirche

Nave roof boss. This poor Green Man. They have fixed a light fitting to his nose! Such a wonderful carving, from around 1200, and spoilt by a light fitting Corbel in chancel. Dates from 1220
Horned Green Man on a memorial blowing into bugles filled with flowers. Maybe this carving is related to the wild-wose
