The Blind House, Shrewton
The Blind House, Shrewton
I don't know how this typical lock-up came by its name unless it meant that inmates couldn't see out so were effectively blind. The brass plaque on the door states, 'The Blind House, Village criminals were kept in this 18th century prison' with translations in French and German. The last sentence on the plaque reads, 'Property of Shrewton Parish Council. Protected by law as an ancient monument. Silver Jubilee Year 1977'.
