Extract from Stat. [Statistical] Account, The only remarkable Spring is Trinity
Well a little South of the Manse of great renown in Popish days
for the performing of remarkable cures.

Extract from Stat [Statistical] Account. There is also a peculiar looking Stone
standing on the high ground about a mile to the north west
of Gasconhall called the Borestone, It has borne an inscription,
but age has so completely obliterated the characters, that it
is impossible to decypher a single word, The figure of
animals among which the boar and the Stag predominate
may still be traced. Some maintain that it was a trysting
place for the hunting of the wild boar, others that it was an
instrument of punishment with which idea to stone corresponds,
It is about 5 feet high with two holes at the top through which
the arms of the delinquent might be thrust and be kept
there ia a sort of pillory.
