Building Type Lock-Up
Remarks Adjacent to the old court house (now a farm shop). The existing building is a replica lock-up built in the 1980s and the photograph below shows the rear this building. Yalden churchwardens inspected Marden's lock-up design when building their own (see separate listing). Stocks stood nearby.
'The building known locally as the Court House (or Cross House) probably dates from the early 15th Century....To the right [stood] the original lock-up which was used to imprison offenders...[It had] a chimney in it. This building was replaced in the 1980s with a replica, but this time without the chimney or fireplace...Closer to our own times the Court House has been a butcher’s shop and the lock-up next door a cobbler’s.
