Building Type Lock-Up
'This lock up house consists of two cells, on the same construction and about the same size as those at Bellingham, and as there also, with unglazed apertures for windows, and without any provision for warming, or accommodation for a resident keeper. The lock up house stands on the slope of a hill outside the village, and the site is tolerably good, The cells were damp, but that was owing apparently to the state of the roof which, I was informed, was about to be repaired. Each cell has a wooden guard-bed. The place was clean.'
