A set of 'stocks' sits in the centre of Warslow village. It's thought that these probably date to the nineteenth century, but no one knows for sure.
Stocks were a gentler form of punishment than pillory or ... gulp ... gibbet, and were more meant as a medium of public humiliation.
But I wonder why the good folk of Warslow like to use a form of punishment as a centre-piece for their village? Perhaps they hope the stocks will act as a silent deterrent to any baddies.
