Extract from Discovering Old Huddersfield (1993-2002) by Gordon & Enid Minter:
Soon after Oakes Fold, Townend Lane becomes Pinfold Lane. At one time nearly every village had a pinfold where stray animals were impounded and released to their owners only after payment of a fine. Lepton's pinfold was on the right of Pinfold Lane where a semi-circle of tall trees borders a small piece of rough land. Ten years ago, although much of the walling had gone, the outline of the pound could still be made out. Today, the surrounding vegetation is encroaching and soon all traces of the historic pinfold will have disappeared.
