Details

The Worthington lock-up is octagonal, of red brick, with an octagonal brick spire. It measures approximately 3 metres across with 1.5 metre high walls surmounted by a projected stone string course. The octagonal brick spire is approximately 3.5 metres high and tapers to a stong finial. The overall height of the lock up is approximately 5 metres high.

It has a small slit window which may have been inserted in World War II to convert it into a pillbox.

It is believed to date from the late 18th century and is a listed building grade II and an ancient scheduled monument.
