    Fabulous report sir. Been a fan of your output for a while - you are most skilled in the weilding of a camera. I actually think being limited to 35mm has made this report.

    I felt somewhat meh and dissapointed at some of my images from here and seeing this report has made me decide to pay a return visit to try and come back with more half decent pics.

    Well done sir.
    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    Permission visit or not, it's a cracker, and well worth it in my view. Top man!
    A glooming peace, this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow dare not show its face

    Also an undisclosed mental hospital was used, which had to be changed after the relatives of a patient complained after they recognised it on TV & was worried it would give the impression it was an actual prison!

    For the film a wing of Maidstone prison was used, as it had been damaged in a fire being refurbished at the time.
    For the 1979 film of Porridge they used HMP Chelmsford as it was closed for 3 months after a wing had been on fire and the place was being refurbished HMP Pentonville was used for shots in the titles for the tv series
