TL 3712 (south side)

Great Amwell village
12/15 Stocks in churchyard
23 metres west of tower


Village stocks. Probably C17 or C18. Oak. 2 tall rectangular
end posts about 1.5 metres high, capped in lead with tapering oak
supports bolted on front and rear narrow faces. Each has a
central rectangular slot from ground level, half a metre in
height, to receive the 2 horizontal oak timbers with semi-
circular notches in opposed edges meant to secure the legs. The
upper timber is broken in two pieces and the lower one decayed
but complete. The stocks are recorded as being replaced in their
original position by R W Mylne on the occasion of Victoria's
Jubilee (in 1887) (Harvey (1896) 141), and being moved to the
churchyard from behind the George IV PH in the 1920's (Mylne
(1973) 5). Part of a picturesque churchyard group. (RCHM (1911)
