THE SITE.

I am not political, but this place is very representative of the dark, recent history of this great wee country.

Originally it was an RAF Airfield during WW2 - as the first photograph illustrates !

The first prison (L-0-n-g K-E-s-H) was built on the main RAF runway, with the second built in the 70's ( HMP M4 zE)

ENTRY

As youd have guessed - extremely difficult! except on organised tours

THE REPORT - OUTSIDE THE BIG WALL

Team NI -'doing the do' again

Aerial view of the whole site - from left to right, new prison, L K, L K mil site

pic from the frot door so to speak - L K is long gone, demolition in progress within M - the wall in the background, with the towers

There is an old compound to the far left of pic 1 - these are dismantled towers, awaiting 'recyling'

Lord knows where these would have been used

But I guess they were someones offices

Still lots of evidence as to its RAF past around this end of the prison

Dont know if these are taxiway / runway lights - the two hangars in the background will be staying as part of a museum

cell mural - over time, these have been painted over many times. Now with the damp (no heating) they are starting to show through - like ghosts from the past

THE HOSPITAL

IMGP1554tn.jpg

many a person, staff and inmate, has died within this building

IMGP1551tn.jpg

the room where negotiations for the go-od fri-day agreement with the hun-ger str-ik-ers took place

Having recently visited this site, I thought I would share an update of some photographs I took in March 2008.

[Below] Could this be one of the original prison cell doors?
