Spen Valley Stocks


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. Sadly all that's left of Liversedge's stocks are the two pieces of stone which you can find outside the newsagent's shop at 206 Halifax Road Liversedge.  Do you think the stocks should be restored?
