Sidney Pell Potter in his 'History of East Leake' (1903, p.108) states

"The Cuckstool [ie Ducking Stool] was fixed by the brook, opposite the Windmill Inn, but no one remembers its existence"

 "The Stocks, which were used far into the 19th century, were fixed against the pinfold facing the old Three Horse Shoes Inn"


Parish Constable's Accounts for East Leake, 1797 - "paid John Guttridge for the Stocks".
