Village stocks. Probably early C18. Penrith red sandstone, with iron hook set
in lead. Long narrow slab set into the cobbles of the market place, hollowed at
top to take 2 pairs of legs. Central hook, bent flat, held 2 iron leg clamps,
which could be individually locked at either side on iron locking pins (holes
