Stone for Shutting off Two Horses, Broadway

An ancient stone for shutting off two horses in the village of Broadway in Gloucestershire, England. The upright stone is set in the grass verge, beside the High Street and was possibly used by visitors, for tethering their horse. It bears the inscription, shut off two horses here. Broadway was once very busy with horse traffic, and it was also an important stagecoach stop between London and Worcester.
