Description:View of the Old Pound at Bount's Green, Uttoxeter at the junction between the A518 Stafford Road and the B5013 road to Rugeley. Probably late 18th century, it consists of a series of vertical oblong stones set in a square in a grassy triangle, three holes in each stone which would have housed wooden poles. It was a pound or pinfold for stray livestock, and it is possible that it was originally sited on Pinfold Lane in Uttoxeter.

Photographer: Gerald McCann of High Street, Uttoxeter.
