HMP Chelmsford started life as a county jail back in 1830. It is now a category B prison, holding both adult males and young offenders. Two new blocks were constructed in 1996 to try to address the problem of over-crowding, and in 2013, it was announced that certain older parts of the prison would be closed. Now, the prison has the capacity to hold 745 inmates. If you’d like to find out how to get to HMP Chelmsford.
