    Default Blundeston prison..permission visit


    My friend managed to organise a small group visit to this closed prison which sits in the village of blundeston.the prison opened in 1963 with four wings then extended in 1975 with two additional ones.the prison was a category c prison and was shut down in December 2013.the site is soon to be redeveloped into housing and a care home.i quite enjoyed my look around here.sat in reggie krays cell too.some parts like G block were quite old.one block was very modern.

    Looking down to the main block with the seperate wings to the side



    The isolation ward for the very naughty ones.these cells would have had two doors and monitored virtually constantly.the furniture was made of cardboard









    The main prison wings











    The prison mosque















    The gymnasium.







    We stumbled on the chapel by mistake.glad we did.i loved the pastel colours in here.



    Cell 116 home to reggae kray for his final years in prison before he was released and passed away in Norwich







    This G block.the oldest part of the prison.the rooms were four man rooms with two bunks.each room had two doors one opening inwards and one opening outwards so if the prisoners barricaded themselves in they could always manage to get in one dorm at least.









    The main exercise yard





    This is the newest block.very clean and modern.i thought it was like a MFI block









    The waste management area







    Astro turf pitch



    Delivery compound

    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    I've been round a couple of prisons (permission visits!) and even stayed in one in Canada that was converted into a hostel!

    Very nice Mikey; really interesting stuff
