Wandsworth Prison Museum
Part of Wandsworth Heritage Festival. The prison museum is in a shed outside Wandsworth Prison the former Surrey House of Correction. Dark and foreboding on the outside Peter Hitchens has a view of what goes on inside. However the museum is small but fairly good with a film set reproduction of a gallows which is the highlight. There are also prison uniforms, old prison mechanisms like locks and cell bells and other artefacts of interest. No real photographic opportunities though.
