Building Type Lock-Up
'This lock up house, which is at the outskirts of the village, contains two very small cells, with rooms for the keeper and his wife. One of the cells opens into a passage, and the other into a yard, to which the neighbours have access. The cells appear to be sometimes damp. The only provision for light or ventilation is a grated opening in the door. The cells are not warmed, and they are not secure. In one cell there was some loose straw to serve as bedding; but the other cell has not even this provision; it appeared indeed to be used more frequently as a dog kennel than for any other purpose.'
