Bulmer, History, Topography and Directory of North Yorkshire, (1890), p 468:
"Near the end of the street is an old stone cross, which was repaired by
subscription in 1828; at the same time, the old wooden stocks, which stood
close by, were replaced by iron ones; and this obsolete instrument of
correction is still in good preservation".
