This corn dolly, known as a 'cock dolly', was made by Lettice Sandford. It is in the form of a cockerel with wings and tail outstretched, and is a replica of 51/123. The cock is a common symbol in the harvest tradition and cock dollies were often either set on top of the hayrick or mounted on poles as weather vanes.
