The relics of the village pound still stand at the corner of Lower Lane and Marsh Road. The income of the pound was given by the last Lord of the Manor to his wife in 1835.

There appears to have been confusion over the location of the pound. Chapman records it as standing at the junction of Lower Lane and Marsh road. This is further to the north, closer to Dalwood, the site being depicted as a pound on the 1880s-1890s 25 inch Ordnance Survey map. See Monument Id. 48455.
