Temporary Room Closure
Temporary Room Closure
Please note that Room 6, which contains the reconstructed cells and contraband items is temporarily closed off on advice from our Health and Safety representative whilst they conduct monitoring of radon gas levels. Unfortunately this also includes our toilets.

We have been provided with 2 portaloos as a short term measure.

Items of contraband can still be viewed as we have a handling collection at receptions and these can be viewed on request.

We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused but hopefully this will be remedied in the near future.
