Restoration of Cranford village lock up
Built in 1838, possibly replacing an earlier building on this site, Cranford's village lock up was a temporary detention for local rogues caught by the village constable. Later superseded by police stations with their own cells, it is a rare survival in London, though a number are still found outside the capital. Restoration included a new roof, restored iron bars and door and an interpretation panel. Please see our News page for photos of the restored lock up.
