    HMP Shrewsbury

    So HMP Shrewsbury shut down in 2013… it sat empty for a good while before being bought by a property developer. It’s now going through the planning consultation stages with a number of options being considered and according to local news sites will be sealed up for work to start after Christmas for conversion to student accommodation.

    In the meantime it has a guy care taking it for the developers and in return gets to run events and tours or you can just turn up, throw them fifteen quid and have the place to yourself. It’s not a museum at all, other than a few scraps of paper stuck doors telling you which toilet to use its exactly as it was when it was shut down complete with shit stained cell toilets and porn on the walls and to be honest I was wandering around thinking it’s amazing the developers let anyone just wander in unaccompanied as the place is an absolute health and safety nightmare.

    I was in there for four hours ducking under ropes to stroll through the various sections which were supposed to be closed off and never saw a single other person… literally had the entire prison to myself… it really was a smashing way to spend the afternoon.

    Anyway, permission visit so wouldn’t normally post but it is a beaut of a building and seeing as its not had a report before and will probably be gone very soon I thought I would post them up as the current plan seems to be for it to be converted into fancy student accommodation in the very near future.

    If you want to know what each photo is of I've put details on each pic on my homepage jobber www.derpage.com/hmp

    THE HANGING ROOM - Shrewsbury has over 30 unmarked graves in the grounds. 10 bodies were re-burried when the sports hall was built and hangings took place in this room up until 1960. The area floor boarded would have been the drop trapdoors with the leave in the recessed section.

    Brill pictures mate You have nailed this place, and well worth the 15 quid to see it, as long as they let you out at the end of the day :)

    Great set of photos. Im sure once the developers see them that £15 probably wont work anymore.
