Winson Green Prison / HMP Birmingham

Posted in > >

Built in 1849, Winson Green is a category B/C prison. It was once a place of execution - with 35 people meeting their demise at the hands of the state in the 20th century alone.

Among its visitors have been such luminaries as Ozzy Osbourne and Fred West, who hung himself here in a cell on New Year's Day, 1995.
