Ipplepen Prison (Lock-Up)

Ipplepen had a small Lock-up (prison) that operated between 1800-1899. Situated in the rear garden of The Old House, Fore Street, Ipplepen. Grade II listed but lock-up use not referenced in the listing. Now used as a shed in the garden of the private house which was once almshouses. Leslie Brooke cites evidence from the Devon Quarter Sessions that suggests the lock-up was in use in 1855, but the date of establishment is unknown.
