Pakefield Church – In the stocks please!

All Saints and St. Margaret’s Church in Pakefield makes my website again … a really interesting addition was seen as I was walking back home from an evening walk along the beach.

Just look at the pictures – the church now has genuine stocks and a whipping post.  I cannot really remember seeing any other stocks or whipping posts locally so I think its it a huge achievement.

If you click on the second picture, this explains what the stocks are and where they came from, but if you are in the area, why not pop along and have a look at these interesting stocks yourself.

    Pakefield stocks
    Yes I noticed them y’day too, but couldn’t read the notice and some damned car had parked in front!
    But when I clicked on your photo of the notice my browser couldn’t find it.

    Thank you for point that out 🙂 … I have changed this page and you should be able to read the text now and if you click on the image itself, it opens up an even larger image. Hope this helps.
