In July 2014 David Studdard shared the following images from around 1916 of Wakefield Prison in Wakefield, Yorkshire.










The prison was originally built in 1594. It is still in operation in a facility built in 1966. Many of the building date to Victorian times. It houses high profile sex offenders.

A section known as the "new prison" was opened in 1849.

In August 1865 there were a total of 1,372 prisoners in the jail - 1,176 men and 196 women.
