Sideways view of the stocks on Green, with some of the large trees that stood around them.

They could accommodate two persons side by side whilst at one end is a whipping post with two iron bracelets. Syd Tyrrell said they had been set up in 1828 at a cost of £6 15s 6d. He thought the last man to be put in them was a wife beater in the 1850s. Although we hear that some village men were popped in there on their Stag nights up to the 1970s.
