Stocks & Stones

I've been passing through Faulkland about twice a month now for years but have never bothered to actually stop and look at the stones which are clearly visible from the road.

So today was the day. Nice and early when no one was about as the stones are in the middle of the village green, surrounded by houses and I hate being conspicuous!

There are other stones around  one of which can be seen in the picture alongside.

An interesting feature is the use of the stones to frame a set of stocks - I've never seen them in use  by the way!

I'm told they date from the 16-17th century.
