Here’s some facts about Swinfen Hall Prison
HMP Swinfen Hall is a category C prison in Swinfen, Staffordshire. Opened in 1963, the prison has capacity to hold 624young male prisoners.
The name of the prison comes from the name of the manor house directly opposite the prison, now converted to a hotel, not in the hall itself.
There are nine residential wings (A-F, I & J) holding between 60 and 90 prisoners each. B wing, the induction/first night unit, has space for 60 inmates.
In early August 2015, inmates attempted to flood a wing of the prison. Ambulances, fire crews and riot police were called in at 19:37, and lock-down reportedly lasted until 00:07. After flooding the wing, the inmates were “threatening to start a fire” and fire crews put out two small cell fires.
