HMP Buckley Hall is a category C men’s prison in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Opened in 1995, it was the UKs fourth private prison, run by Group 4 Prison Services, but lost it’s contract after 5 years, and was returned to the public in 2000. It has a capacity of 445.

The prison was featured in the news after a smuggled mobile phone was used to film a prisoner getting “high” on “Spice”

A report in April 2016 stated that there had been two occasions in the year before when prisoners managed to escape onto the roof of the building. Prison staff say “the man was uninjured – and that the disturbance did not affect the running of the jail,”.
