Cornnhill - Shepton Mallet

Cornnhill - Shepton Mallet
Situated in a peaceful area of the sleepy market town of Shepton Mallet is Cornnhill. The door is as sturdy as it looks, and for good reason. Cornnhill is a high security prison.

Cornhill is in fact the oldest operating prison in the UK, dating back to 1625. It holds around 200 category C lifers. Not the most dangerous, but also not suitable for open prisons.
