'It is situate in a street, and consists of two cells, one towards the street, the other to the back, not sufficiently secure nor convenient. Communication with the street by the window is extremely easy. The back cell also has a window which bears upon the court yard of a tradesman. A policeman remains with the prisoner in his cell when the case is a particular one. The cells generally are occupied by night cases, drunkards etc. After half past 10 at night all cases are brought hither, and not the the Borough Gaol.'
