365/73: 03 May 2010: A Pig in a Poke…

…or perhaps more accurately Cockermouth Market Place. Was out this morning taking photos for my first degree assignment, and bought a copy of a guided walk around Cockermouth. I don’t know how many times I’ve walked past the stone bollards in the Market Place, but I’ve never noticed these little plaques that carry the toll charges for taking various animals through the street. Of course, there will be those who don’t know what 1/2d is – so for those to young to remember it’s about 1/4p.
