History and amenities
It has a very small population of residents and a small number of properties. History tells us that the Alfrick Pound was once an area where stray livestock were held in a pound until the owner was traced or turned up to reclaim them, incurring a small fine in order to do so.
The houses that stand are
half-timbered cottages, an old pub, a small village school and even a small police house. None of these are still used for their original purpose and have been modernised and made into private residences though still revealing their old architecture.
