'This lock up contains four cells of the same dimensions as those of the City Prison, namely, 12 feet 6 inches by 7 feet and 8 feet 6 inches high. These are warmed and ventilated in the same manner as those of the gaol which they adjoin, but no bedding is allowed to prisoners, who sleep on guard beds. There is a good charge room, in which the inspector of police sits to receive charges, and adjoining to the police station is the engine house, in which are kept some very powerful engines, for the use of the town and neighbourhood.'
