Trip to Northleach Prison

Trip to Northleach Prison

1.30pm Depart to Northleach Prison (45mins travel).

A visit to the Old Prison offers a unique glimpse into life in a 19th century house of correction. Built in the 1790s, this was once a fine example of a model prison used to inspire better care and rehabilitation of prisoners throughout Britain and further afield. It even served as a blueprint for London's Pentonville Prison.

Over the years the building has seen many changes of use including a police station, petty sessional court and tramp station. You can still see one of the original cell blocks built in 1844 along with the historic court room which was in use right up until the 1970s.
