Village Stocks, Fovant
Village Stocks, Fovant
Villages were once required by law to maintain stocks for the punishment of offenders. Their legs or hands were held in apertures cut in two planks which were padlocked together and held by stone or wooden vertical supports. Stocks were usually erected in public places such as village green, market squares, or near churches so that passers-by could add to the severity of the sentence according to their reactions to the crime, details of which were often displayed on a notice board.
