Medieval or Post Medieval punishment place
The site of Medieval or Post Medieval stocks, a wooden frame through which criminals would be made to place their hands and feet as a punishment. The stocks were situated on the green by the Old Rectory in Lower Brailes.
1 The display case on the north wall of the south aisle of St George’s Church, included keys to the stocks which stood on the green outside the Old Rectory. The site is now marked by trees called locally ‘Stock Trees’ of which there is a photograph in the museum.
