The Village Stocks

A commemorative set of stocks erected May 27th 1967 to mark the fact that on 28 May 1267 King Henry III granted to Simone De Arden the right to hold a weekly market.

These were commissioned by the committee who organised the 700th Anniversary Celebrations
commemorating the granting of the Royal Charter.

Bernard Mellor, Joiner and undertaker built the stocks. He worked from the old Church Institute.
Ken Birkin, our local builder, did the brickwork and base.
