Bear was fascinated by this old (1845) stone fence enclosure.

Foster Town Pound

According to the librarians, it was used to house wandering cows, and possibly sheep, until their owners could come to claim them.

The Pound is about 48' by 48.5', with a wooden gate and single, unhewn granite lintel. The enclosure isn't very tall, which led Bear to conclude that cows aren't particularly good jumpers.
