Stocks and Whipping Post, Brading

The famous five-hole stocks and whipping post, in the Old Town Hall of Brading, Isle of Wight, England.

The last recorded use of the whipping post was in 1833; the stocks which are very unusual because they have five holes, were in use for several centuries, the earliest recorded use was in 1555.
