Building Type Lock-Up
'This lock up house consists of a single cell, about 9 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 9 feet high. It stands at the outskirts of the village, apart from any other building, and with no accommodation for a resident keeper; nor is there any house within about a furlong. The cell appeared to be dry, but it has no window, though there is a small hole, intended apparently for ventilation. There is no provision for warming. There is a narrow bench, but no bedstead; there was, however, loose straw for bedding. The place was not clean and neat.'
