The Green Man's closure date is unknown, but the most recent Eye licensing records we've seen show it still open at least as late as 1967. The building dates from the 16th and 17th centuries.

In 1865 & 1888 it was listed at the Street.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1903 (larger map)
