This beautiful Victorian Jail was built in 1831 to house 30 Prisoners that were all transferred from the existing Prison in Castle Rushen in Castletown, the building was designed by Manx architect James Cowle.

The Prison has been extended on a number of occasions to include further accommodation wings however In August 2008 this beautifully designed Victorian building was vacated and the staff and inmates were all transferred to the new Isle of Man Prison in Jurby which is now fully operational.

This type of architecture will probably never be seen again on the Isle of Man and is a genuine reason for it’s retention.

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
