'This lock-up house, forming a part of the yet unfinished police station, is well situated in the centre of the town. It contains two cells, one of which, however, is not yet used on account of the plaster not being dry ... The two cells are each 13 feet long, 9 feet wide, 10 feet high, and contain about 1150 cubic feet each. They open into an open yard surrounded by high walls. There is, however, a covered way from the cells to the constables and magistrates rooms. The cells are dry, and are warmed, lighted and ventilated. Each cell is provided with a guard bed, rug and straw-bed.'
Inspectors of Prisons of Great Britain IV. Northern District, Thirteenth Report (Parl. Papers, 1847-8, XXXVI.361), p.72
