The Pound was a feature of any number of rural villages, but we are lucky to have a surviving example in East Budleigh. This is where stray farm animals were impounded.  In bygone days a wandering animal could cause great damage where few fences existed and the owner would face a fine if he allowed his cattle to stray. No one is sure that this is the exact location of the original pound, but it certainly was in this locality.
