The Fairy Bodyguard Of North London | Londonist
May 3, 2019 - You might have seen this giant woodland sprite before, but do you know what it depicts? It's called a Spriggan: these are mischievous creatures from Cornish folklore, known for thieving, but also for their part-time roles as fairy bodyguard (even mythical creatures need to make a living).

October 9, 2013 - A familiar sight on Parkland Walk, the Spriggan appears from the side of the railway arch like an ancient holy relic. It’s not nearly as old as it seems though.

March 10, 2016 - The Crouch End Spriggan. It lives on Parkland Walk. I always picture it in the rain, greasy city drizzle. Bracken threaded with spiny thorn branches, diurnal foxes, lycra clad cyclists taking a route both scenic and convenient from Finsbury Park to Highgate. Following the old train line, out ...

August 21, 2023 - Looking down on the Parkland Walk, from its place high up in one of the brick alcoves, is the Spriggan. This sculpture, by Marilyn Collins, appears to be climbing out of the brick wall. See Wikipedia’s site, SPRIGGAN, where a photo of Marilyn’s sculpture is the first image you see.

April 30, 2024 - It has been suggested that the sculpture, and the Parkland Walk generally, provided the inspiration for Stephen King's short story "Crouch End". However, as the story was first published in 1980 and the sculpture not erected until 1993, there can be no connection between the Spriggan and the story.

April 15, 2021 - Rather like the famous New York ... The Parkland Walk is sometimes suggested as an inspiration for the US project. Varying between woodland and more open paths, there’s plenty of evidence of what looks like former platforms along the route. As well as the ubiquitous aerosol decoration which – depending on your tastes – is either a colourful addition or eyesore. One thing to make sure you look out for is this playful sculpture of a green man. It’s known as the Spriggan Sculpture ...
