This photograph is now on the 'Village lock-up Group' album, thanks to Rod.
Known as The Cage, it was originally Walton Market Cross and dates to the 1630's and was first used as a lock-up in about 1795. It was moved in 1852 to the corner of Maidstone Road but in 1910 it was purchased by a Chiswick business man who restored it and used it as a recreational shelter for his employees. In 1957 it was returned to Walton and restored by the Council close to its original position for use as a bus shelter.
This lock-up is situated in a corner of the churchyard in Church Lane (formerly Blind House Lane) BA11 1DN and dates to 1798 (datestone). It is in a dilapidated state and is currently being used as a churchyard store room. The original doorway is covered by an iron gate which would have given way to two cells. It does not appear to be a listed building.
I am grateful to Colin Sinnott for sending me this photograph.
This lock-up is situated in Church Street, BA12 7HW, adjacent to No's 41-42. The date is not known and it does not appear to be a listed building. It has been renovated and may be private accomodation.

The lock-up or cage, is situated at Shelford Road, CM7 5BT and dates to c1819. It was Grade 11 listed 9.1.1975 (No.115066) and described as : 'Village lock-up. CIrca 1819. Small red brick building. Gabled roof. Vertically boarded oak door with 3 vertical rows of circular ventilation holes, metal grille behind.'
The chimney would suggest that the building had a 'new' use post lock-up era.
The strong Treasury Chamber was ideal for conversion to the village lock-up.
The door to the lock-up is inside the church.
