Former Oozebooth farmhouse
Former Oozebooth farmhouse
This old farm was formerly the site of a pinfold. Stray cattle on Farmer A's land would be brought here to be held until the owner, Farmer B collected it.
The pinfolder would give some token, which he would recognise later, to A, who would then pass it to B, after any payments for damage etc. had been paid.
B would then give the token to the pinfolder who would then release the cattle after further fees for keeping were paid.
