The Blind House, Steeple Ashton
The sturdy reminder of 18th century public disorder is adorned with a sign prohibiting ball games. Lockups such as this were used as temporary holding cells for drunks and other miscreants. They fell into disuse with the passing of the County Police Act in 1839 when police forces were established with their own detention facilities. More on wiki LinkExternal link
