Stocks and Pillories
This site is devoted to stocks and pillories. It attempts to cover as many different aspects of this subject as possible, from the various types of stocks and pillories to how these were (and still are) used. An unashamedly eclectic mix of witches, performance art, satire and much else besides. Whether your interest is historical or otherwise, I hope you will find much to inform and entertain.

Do you have any comments or questions? Do you have any further information or pictures you would be willing to share? I would love to hear from you. Drop me a line at stockspillory@googlemail.com.
