Animal Pounds

in Hertfordshire

The Village Pound at Flamstead End.

Straying animals were always a problem, and many villages had a small fenced-off area where such animals could be impounded. 

Often the location of the former pound is indicated by place names such as Pound Field at St Michaels, Scham Pound (Sacombe) or Pound Farm at Sandridge.

Philip Wray has produced a most interesting account of Preston's pound.

If you can add to the information given above tell me.
