Portable stocks, made to the order of the Chichester Corporation in 1828. Offenders for drunkenness frequently preferred to pay five shillings rather than be ridiculed in the stocks.

Their last recorded use was in 1852, when Henry 'Shadow' Mason was charged with being drunk and disorderly and was placed in the stocks at the City Cross for two hours.
