Plaque on stocks
'Few would suppose that the village stocks had been in active use within the memory of anyone now living, but plenty of old inhabitants can remember them, standing against the wall of 'The Elms', hold in their embrace the drunkard, the waster.'
Loughborough Echo - Friday 3rd August 1928 (reproduced on Quorn Village Museum website)
'The Elms...is now number 6 Dower House Gardens and was originally a Victorian extension to the old Dower House'
