what's the oldest prison in the uk?


steve c
Clink Prison is probably the oldest duty on record, which is why the term locked in the clink is a popular prison slang word. How ever some villages still have old stock mounts which out date the prison. You can not rule out castle dungeons are basically the first proper prisons the most famous of which is the tower of London.
