Village Green, Grimston

 Classed as a Grade II listed building, these stocks are described as "Probably C19 with older origins. The timber stock has 2 pairs of leg- holes, with posts at either end". The large stone is actually a standing stone about which Bob Trubshank wrote "If it looks like the stone is there to provide a comfortable back-rest for someone 'enthroned' in the stocks then think again – the stone is actually too close to the stocks for someone with normal adult legs – the stone would have added to any discomfort!"
