Until Victorian times most villages had their own stocks, where wrongdoers were punished by having their legs clamped into holes between two pieces of wood. Passers by could throw anything they wanted at the person in the stocks, or tell them off. East Bierley and Hartshead's stocks are intact. All that's left of Liversedge Stocks are the two stones outside 206 Halifax Road Liversedge. They are Listed Grade II, but are at risk from damage from vehicles, and can't be appreciated due to a fence. Read what we've discovered about their history here . We'd like to move them to a safer site close by, and restore them, adding an information board about their history. Contact us and tell us what you think!
