Building Type Dwelling House
'This building is in the middle of the town, and the site is unobjectionable. The house is private property, rented by the county. There is only one cell, and this is part of a cellar. The cell is 10 feet long, 8 1/2 feet broad, and 7 feet high ... It is damp, very nadly ventilated, and cold. It is quite unfit for usem and is incapable of being rendered fit. The keeper, however, who is a county constable residing on the spot, stated that it was never used in the night, or for more than a couple hours at a time, and that he took any prisoners who remained longer into his kitchen. There is a kind of guard bed, but no bedding.'
