    Default prison L july 2014 (Permission visit)


    This was a permission visit. Visited the site with 2 none forum members

    here is some wikki for you

    Originally built during the Victorian era as a private dwelling,it was then owned by the Ministry of Defence and had various uses until after World War II, when the building was transferred to Her Majesty's Prison Service.it was then used as a detention centre and prison until it was closed in September 2011. In 2013 the site was sold to Berkeley Homes who are consulting on the redevelopment of the former prison into housing with community facilities.

    and on with the pics :)

    The first corridor shot is fab!

    Nice one Sparky. I was wondering how you did it as the place has the highest fence I've ever seen. I got all excited when I saw your shots on FB thinking someone had cracked it open.

    Nice, I have been waiting for the demo boys to move in and knock down that unfeasibly tall fence :)
