'The police station containing the cells which form this lock up house is on a similar construction to that of the South Dock ... The site is convenient and unobjectionable ... There are 10 cells ... The cells are dry. They are lighted, though insufficiently, by grated openings over the doors looking into the passages into which the cells open. They are warmed by hot water pipes. The ventilation of some of the cells is bad ... The cells are secure. As respects bedding, food and most other particulars, this lock up house is the same as that at the South Dock.'
Inspectors of Prisons of Great Britain IV. Northern District, Thirteenth Report (Parl. Papers, 1847-8, XXXVI.361), p.88
