On 1 April 1995, HM Prisons Thorp Arch and Rudgate amalgamated to form HMP Wealstun. This was an historic development for the Prison Service, and had the effect of creating a Category C (closed) and Category D (open) prison as one establishment on a single site.

In 2008 the open prison closed and the prison underwent a conversion to provide additional category C places, the full prison commenced operation in May 2010 and can now accommodate 832 prisoners.

We do this by allocating a dedicated and secure local number to your mobile phone, this means when the inmate at Wealstunprison calls the new local number we have provided they will be charged at just the local landline rate (around 10p per minute) rather than the standard mobile rate (which is around 40p per minute).

This in turn helps to stretch the inmates PINS phone credit further and reduces the amount you need to send in for them to top up!
