Building Type Lock Up, Dwelling House
'This lock-up house is situated on the side of a steep hill. It is under the house occupied by the police constable in charge of it, but is above the level of the road. It opens into a sort of yeard at the back of the keepers house; which yard is open to the road. The lock-up house contains only one cell, which is 8 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 5 1/2 feet high; containing, therefore, about 260 cubic feet. The cell was tolerably dry, but there is no provision for warming it. It is dark and ill-ventilated.'
