St Helens Heritage Finger Pillory

Made as a commision for the Lottery funded St Helen's Heritage project @ St Helen's Church in Ashby de la Zouch I have created a less intimidating version of their unique and historic finger pillory. Originally used to punish minor offences by trapping the victims fingers this friendlier recreation is designed to demonstrate how this would have worked.

If you wish to have a go please visit St Helen's Church in Ashby, where you can also see the original version still in place at the rear of the church
