Of stocks and sarnies

Over the hill from the farm, leaving the industrial landscape of Stocksbridge behind us, we dropped down through an old quarry into the small village of Green Moor. Almost immediately opposite the end of the footpath, was this set of old stocks.

According to the inscribed stone, they were originally elsewhere, but re-erected in this location to commemorate the crowning of King George 6th on May 12th, 1937.

Over the wall behind them, is a small public garden, created in 2000 as part of the community's Millennium celebrations. Along the far wall of the garden is a picnic table and a row of 3 benches, set to look outward, over the wall to the view of the valley beyond.

It was only 11:40a.m., but the lure was too great.

With a view like this, who wouldn't want to stop for lunch?
