Round House Worthington

I spotted the above building in the town of Worthington.  The sign on the door reads

The Round House
The Round House is believed to date back from the late 18th Century. It is a listed building and Ancient Scheduled Monument.
Until the Leicestershire Police Force was established in 1839 the responsibility for maintaining law and order lay with the Parish Constable. Among his duties was that of apprehending suspect criminals and keeping them secure in the Round House until he could bring them before the Justices.
For further information please contact Worthington Parish Council on 01530 222970. An information leaflet on the Round House is available free at the village shop or pub.

I guess that many of the former occupants of the Round House were well acquainted with the village pub.
