‘God-fearing Christian Village’ Chases Saboteur Who Fills Their Free Roadside Book Kiosk With X-Rated Literature
- Joker placed erotic books in a wooden box set up for the villagers of Cornholme
- An angry local didn’t see the funny side and put an angry note on the box
- Unimpressed writer described Cornholme as ‘a godly Christian village’
A free roadside book kiosk in a West Yorkshire village is filled with X-rated literature, leading to a search for the porn joker from the library.
The unnamed prankster placed the erotic books in a wooden box set up for residents of Cornholme, near Todmorden, to exchange reading material.
The nasty donations, however, provoked outrage in a villager, who pinned a note to the green box, which stood on a wooden post next to the village notice board, and demanded that it stop.

The nasty donations, however, provoked outrage in a villager, who pinned a note to the green box on a wooden post next to the village’s notice board and demanded it stop.
The printed note said, “Whoever places the copies [sic] of pornographic literature here, stop! Cornholme is a godly Christian village. ‘
The writer then took a swipe at the neighboring and rival market town of Hebeden Bridge.
It added, “If you like this filth, we recommend moving to the cesspool that is Hebden Bridge.”
The note has now gone viral and has been shared more than 15,000 times on Twitter.
One commenter quipped, “I like the sound of Hebden Bridge.”
While another joked, “No matter how I struggle in the countryside, nothing but support for Hebden Bridge’s militant, strange cesspool.”
The note has since been removed.
Small free libraries can be found all over the UK, with many communities building their own cabinets or renovating old telephone booths where people can exchange books.
Cornholme is a former milltown with only 1,600 inhabitants.
