Remarks Roy's Blog gives location as beneath East Gate Bridge. He suggests it is a Grade II listed building (https://britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/300003889-24-market-streetwalled-towncaernarfongwynedd-caernarfon#.XQazNLxKiUk) but the listing makes no mention of its function as a lock-up.
We don’t have an historic or contemporary description for this lock-up at present. Perhaps you could add one for us, if you have it? We would be extremely grateful! To add a description, please follow this link.
Description: The Eastern Orthodox Chapel of SS Peter & Paul beneath East Gate Bridge This must be one of the smallest chapels in Britain. It used to be the town's lockup, with enough room to provide a night's lodging for about two prisoners. A wedding was celebrated here a few years ago.
