Shadow Shot Sunday:
Mottram Stocks

This photograph from Summer 2009 features the village stocks at Mottram-in-Longdendale.

The stocks are a "Grade II listed building" - for the official description and an earlier photograph see Old Hyde.

Very nice shot. The artefact in the foreground looks like an instrument of torture.

Had to read that twice when I saw the green grass. Thought cant possibly be any grass that colour in the UK at present.
Your comment re the student protest. It is vry obvious when you are there amongst it that there is a small group out for trouble who are not students. What I dont understand is why the police dont intervene before they create meyham, they're not difficult to find.

Wonderful shadow shot. And, an interesting subject to shoot. Oh if the stocks could talk, what tales they could tell. Thanks for sharing!!
