Pinfold: Pinfold shares its etymology and semantics with pound - both being enclosures to contain stray animals.
The wooden pinfold nearest to the hut was large enough to contain a flock of sheep. ... Several older pinfolds lay some distance away, made of rough stone walling which had been collapsed in places.
