'There are two small lock-ups and station houses used by the police; one is situated in the Market-place, the other in St Martins ... The lock-up at St Martins consists of a room for the police, and one cell on the ground floor 11 ft by 7 ft 6 in and 7 ft 3 in high. The accommodation here is but indifferent; the prisoners, especially the females, can communicate with persons in the street.'
