History of Portsmouth Prison

Originally built in 1877 as a Victorian prison to house inmates that have been given life sentences, Portsmouth Prison housed those that would normally have faced Capital Punishment.  However, with this being abolished in 1965, this prison was designed to house those inmates that would normally have been put to death.  This was the only prison in England that had its own exclusive wing for elderly male prisoners who were due to begin life sentences.  

During the second world war Portsmouth Prison was used as a police station and at some time it was also used as a boy's borstal but eventually closed its doors in March 2013.
