Northallerton Jail

HMP & HMYOI Northallerton, North Yorkshire

YP, Male

Opened in 1785, back then in was called the North Yorkshire House of Correction (no human rights in them days). Cor not ‘arf. There were worms in the porridge and maggots in the straw (no beds). Then in the 1930’s it became a military prison and a tough one at that: hard and brutal. Now it’s a YP jail with 300 cons in it. Get the ball out and have a kick about…
