The Ancient Jougs
The ancient Jougs, hang on the wall of Sorn Church. The image on the left shows a view of the old kirk, with the jougs hanging aprox at the same height as the door handle, to the right of the door. A closer image on the right, shows a clearer view. Click on the jougs for an even closer view, or show a higher res view of the right hand image by clicking the church door area.
Below, a paragraph from the Sorn Parish chapter of Paterson's 1852 History of Ayrshire & It's Families book, see books and articles.

The Jougs were not always where they are today

From the book < Sorn Parish, It's History & Associations > by Helen Steven 1898

"Until about forty years ago the ancient jougs hung from the kirk wall. They were removed, no one knows by whom."...........................
