This small brick building stands by Melfords village green, at the turning to nearby Glemsford. As far as I know it is the old village lockup, that was used to house minor criminals and miscreants overnight. It seems rather ornate for such a structure, although that means it ties in rather nicely with Tudor built Melford Hall, which stands opposite. However, there is a surprising lack of information for this intriguing little building. If anyone knows more of its history, please email me.
