Long Description:
Village stocks circa 1900, on the village green, Gretton. Viewed from the green looking south.

"Gretton is one of the few villages to retain its stocks and whipping post, which can be found on the village green. The last recorded use was in 1858, when a villager was put in the stocks for six hours after failing to pay a fine for drunkenness."
