25th February 1915
The view is of a pound or pinfold, an enclosure where traditionally stray animals in the village were driven. The village cryer would then announce the fact that an animal had been confined and the owner would be forced to pay a fine of 2d in order to claim it. Thorp Arch pinfold is in front garden of Park Cottage on the village green opposite to South Lodge. Inside the enclosure the teethering rings remain set into the walls.
