'there is a lock up in Bridewell Street'

'This lock up house ... Has been completed and brought into use. Consequently, no male prisoners whatever are now admitted into the [female] house of correction. This new lock up house contains three cells, which are of a proper size, dry, lighted, warmed and ventilated. There is also an airing yard, and rooms for a resident constable and his wife.'
