Booklet published by the Hitchin Historical Society in 1998, 44 pages. A5 size booklet (N7331)

This booklet provides a fascinating account of the old Bridwells of Hitchin (a bridewell is an old name for a jail). Sections cover the Tilehouse Street Bridewell, the New Bridewell in Silver Street, the New Police Station in Bancroft, and the College Road Police Station.

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers have one or two minor scuffs, but the staple spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
