'This is a small cell opening into the watchmens room, and is used merely for the safe keeping of persons who may be found drunk in the streets, and who are brought to this cell chiefly for their own protection. The cell is dark and ill ventilated. It is provided with loose straw to lie on, but there is no bench or bedstead. The superintendent said that no one is ever confined in it for more than an hour or two.'
Inspectors of Prisons of Great Britain IV. Northern District, Thirteenth Report (Parl. Papers, 1847-8, XXXVI.361), p.103
