Explore prisons in your area with our new interactive map

Thursday, 22 July 2021

We are delighted to publish our interactive map of prisons in England and Wales. 

It forms the next step in our After Prison programme. 

You can view the map here.

It is an important resource for understanding the prison(s) in your local area. It's work in progress, so please tell us what you think. 

Our research analyst Matt Ford said:

Our interactive map enables you to explore the prison in your local area, the footprint it occupies, and how it relates to its surroundings.

We developed the map to stimulate thinking about how prison sites could be redeveloped for the benefit of local communities.

There is always a better use for a piece of land than as a place for a prison.
