Here’s some facts about Isle of Wight Prison

HMP Isle Of Wight is a category B training prison in Newport, Isle Of Wight. Opened as a merger between HMP Albany, HMP Parkhurst and HMP Camp Hill in 2009, the prison had a capacity of 1700, but the closure of Camp Hill reduced the population by 595. The prison now has a capacity of 1,139.

The five original residential units on Albany are identical in design and located off one main corridor. In 2010 a new health care facility opened. House block 15 is currently uninhabited following a fire in January 2015. Albany has no internal sanitation in cells on house blocks 11 to 15, so an electronic night sanitation system is in operation in these units. The remand unit on house block 16 has internal sanitation as does the assisted living unit on house block 17.

Parkhurst comprises of eight residential units, seven of which are Victorian units and the eighth is a small former health care unit. There is also a recently refurbished segregation and reintegration unit in a former special secure unit.
