Building Type Lock Up, Police Station
'These lock-ups adjoin the police office, and consist of two dark-cells ... They are apart from each other, one for males and the other for females. It will scarcely be credited that 19 persons have been thrust into one of these cells at a time, as appears by the annexed return from the superintendent of police. These lock-ups are wholly unfit for their purpose, being without light and deficient in ventilation. They are also deficient in size and accommodation for the number of prisoners who may reasonably be expected to be in temporary custody.'
Inspectors of Prisons of Great Britain II. Northern and Eastern District, Fourth Report (Parl. Papers, 1839, XXII.1), p.101
