'This lock up house, though called Skircoat lock up house, is at Woodhouse, at some distance from Skircoat. It is in charge of the constable residing at King Cross. It is a detached building built on the side of a hill. The rain comes through the roof, and it is very damp, dark and dirty, and totally unfit for use.'
