Building Type Lock-Up
'This lock up house was built about four years ago. It stands in a good situation, and contains two cells, with rooms for a resident keeper ... The cells are of the ordinary size in new lock up houses. They are dry, and are lighted and partly ventilated by perforated iron plates, and there is a sufficient provision for warming them. Considering that the prisoners are for their security deprived of their clothing at night, the bedding, which consists of a hempen mattress and two blankets, doe snot appear to be sufficient; and I recommended that it should be increased. '
