I do not often comment in this thread, but all of the images are hugely impressive, in different ways.

 

I look forward to seeing more.

That place radiates desolation and despair.

In this photograph I feel that you have encapsulated the full horror of everything that being incarcerated in that terrible place must be like.

Hello Ann,

It is a somber presence overlooking the city centre,  the second last hanging in Britain took place there in 1964. Presently it has the highest suicide rate in British prisons.

Like a church or cathedral is designed to make one believe, I feel the brutal architecture with it's 16' wide exterior walls delivers it's own message.

 

Your comment makes me very happy, thank you!

Missed this, I intend to complete the project so hopefully nine more.

 

Your too kind Robert Doisneau comment #3 alone, made this thread rewarding for me. Thank you!

 

Cheers

Just to lighten the mood a little, if anyone has seen the comedy film "Two Way Stretch" the prison cat is called Strangeways.  ;)
