'The following article by Maureen Albert, together with the above photograph, appeared in Misterton Village Magazine
in December 2012 :
" A typical outbuilding with an interesting history, this was at one time the Misterton Village Lock-up, providing space for local drunks to sober up, and perhaps restrain worse offenders. More recently its human habitation has been limited to the occasional tramp, but it has served as both hen house and pig pen. It can be found on the opposite side of a hedge to the cemetery, in the field, near the road (A356) at grid reference 481 079 (Ord Survey Sheet 193, Taunton and Lyme Regis)."'
