Building Type Lock-Up
'This lock up house is a small detached building, of the same size and of the same construction as that at Burton, and, like it, is not capable of being made a proper place of confinement. It was built five or six years ago, chiefly by private subscription; but I was told it had never been occupied. It is considered to belong to the township, and the keys of it are kept by the parish surveyor. It is dry apparently at all seasons of the year. It is lighted, like the lock up at Burton, by perforated holes. There is no provision for warming it.'
Inspectors of Prisons of Great Britain IV. Northern District, Thirteenth Report (Parl. Papers, 1847-8, XXXVI.361), p.112
