Remarks Demolished after 1897. Door preserved in Saffron Waldon Museum. Photograph accompanying Hadstock Magazine's article of April 2014 (see link in 'Sources') is of the lock-up at Everton Brow, Liverpool, not Hadstock's.
' Hadstock had its own brick lock-up on the Village Green and a constable to enforce law and order. By 1897 the lock-up had fallen into disuse and was removed after its last guest had dismantled part of the wall and escaped. You can see part of the door of the lock-up and the constable’s truncheon in Saffron Walden Museum. '
