: My granda was at odds with a woman who lived opposite and she used to shout after him from her front door after the old man made a noise. He would go to his front door and call after her. When she didn't reply he would call 'No answer eh, green lady' I wondered why green lady and what did it signify.

Seems there is a legend of a green lady occupying some castles over in the UK area.
