Plan to move stocks from King’s Square
The stocks in the Town of St George could soon have a new home.
The Corporation of St George has submitted a planning application to move the stocks, pillory and whipping post from King’s Square to nearby Ordnance island.
It is planned to set them up in front of the replica of the ship Deliverance.
The application, received on July 12, also proposed to narrow the Ordnance Island roundabout to prevent tour buses and taxis from stopping on it.
Planning documents included in the application said: “Some block traffic as they load and unload passengers in the middle of the roundabout.”
The stocks and pillory, replicas of those used in the 18th century for those convicted of petty crimes, are a popular tourist spot.
