Animal pounds, sheepfolds, pund, pinfolds were used to impound stray livestock in the Lord of the Manor’s official enclosure, often found on the local Pound Lane.
Blundeston Village Pound was an important part of Blundeston life. When livestock was moved from one pasture to another, or to market, it was done ‘on the hoof’. Sometimes a few would go astray and these would be impounded here. They were looked after by the pinder, who fed and watered them. A fee had to be paid on collection by the owner. This is the only public property The Lord of the Manor still retains in the village.
