Wormington Grange

is a Grade II  listed country house in the civil parish of Stanton, Gloucestershire, England. It lies a mile south of the village of Wormington. Although the lodge is of Tudor origins, the main house was constructed in the 1770s for Nathaniel Jeffreys. 

Hermes - was the great Olympian God of animal husbandry, roads, travel, hospitality, heralds, diplomacy, trade, thievery, language, writing, persuasion, cunning wiles, athletic contests, gymnasiums, astronomy, and astrology. 
 

He was also the personal agent and herald of Zeus, the king of the gods. Hermes was depicted as either a handsome and athletic, beardless youth, or as an older bearded man. His attributes included the herald's wand or kerykeion (Latin caduceus), winged boots, and sometimes a winged travelers cap and chlamys cloak.  He was known as Mercury to the Romans.
