Path to the packhorse bridge
Path to the packhorse bridge
In the foreground is what is thought to be a plague stone; during the Great Plague in the 17th century produce for sale outside the village would have been left on the stone and payment would have been made by leaving coins in the 'bowl', which would have been filled with vinegar. This method was used to try and keep the disease out of the village.
