The cake trust table

How glorious England is! I had the chance to go to Castle Combe these last couple of days, as I was attending a conference there. Amongst many sightings of limestone in all its glories (weathered, leached, newly carved...), I spotted this cake table just outside someone's cottage. Their business was run on trust; you take a cake and leave the money there. No one making sure you were being honest, and no one cheated.
