I cannot read it, but expect it is good fun, Lisl.
Lisl: Full of admonition and rules, Ray
I have no idea what any of that means!!!! Great find, though!
Lisl: Country-town rules from a couple of centuries ago, Elizabeth
Oh my, Lisl. I was able to read it but understanding all of it is something else altogether. At least the Crier gets paid!
Lisl: Perhaps you have to be English, Ginnie!!

Back then you also needed an interpreter to read and explain what is written... Great find here, Lisl.
Lisl: I guess they knew what it meant in those days, Astrid

I wonder just how long this notice has been there Lisl?
Lisl: I guess it had been under cover for some time, and perhaps repainted and resituated?
Difficile de comprendre son utilité aujourdhui ,mais ce devait être utile à  l'epoque
Lisl: It must have kept everything in order, Claudine

Looks like bringing my sheep will be quite expensive; 20 in pen for a shilling? I wonder if the Lord of the Manor ever did allow swing boats?
Lisl: I recently bought a book on the history of Minchinhampton in a Charity Shop. I should have a look

If I was paid for crying as a child, I’d have made a fortune Lisl.
Lisl: You should have made a career of it, Chad
6d wasn't a bad wage for a bit of shouting
Lisl: Not bad at all, Bill. Perhaps he had to be able to read as well

belle trouvaille
Lisl: I was pleased to see it, JP
The children scream easily then with this warning, the village would have made a fortune
Lisl: Ah, thank you, Marie

They stand to make a couple of pounds at the meeting.
Lisl: Not bad for those days, Louis
Not much has changed except we can change lord of the manor to government.
Lisl: Still full of rules and costs, Mary
QUite a list of rules!!! Well seen and captured. Friendship
Lisl: Thank you, ruthie

What a find!
Lisl: Most unusual, Anne
I wonder, Lisl, who "Lord of the Manor" was at the time these rules and regulations were written.
Lisl: I have a book about the village, and will see if it mentions who it is. Difficult to date this sign, though
I've come across similar signs to this here and there, I don't find it that difficult to work our what one can or can't do.
Lisl: I liked the humour, Brian
Having a good cry is usually a positive. Having a tantrum is less so.
Lisl: With that sort of cry, I guess it ended up with a hoarse voice
