  The Scarborough Jail still exists on Dean Road. I was once told (some years ago) that Dean Road housed key buildings that evoked one's life, a registry office to record a birth, a marriage,a jail and a cemetery. I love the bulding with its mock turrets, even so far as to have the holes for the drawbridge chains ( no drawbridge though)

On specific days one can 'have a tour'.
