"Now when the sirens used to go we used to go down to the powder house. Now the powder house, the walls would be, well – at least that thick – two foot six.
The walls were stone. The door – there was a tremendously heavy oak door which the oak would be that thick it was big. In the door there was a little opening like that, about that size, with two round pieces of iron and then there were two tremendous oak beams, very, very thick oak beams, and on there obviously ropes had been tied because there were rope marks where they'd been tied round.
History has it I believe that at one time they hung people there. So I've heard – whether that’s true or not, I don't know.
And that being in front of you there was a window this shape; not very big, very high up. And I believe, I should imagine that people were either put in there in some way for torture or imprisonment or something like that because it’s a funny thing to have, you know, such a high up window to start with and this little door with this thing - with the bars, you see."
