FANCY A TRIP TO PRISON? NEW BAILEY EXCAVATION OPEN DAY DETAILS WITHIN
Ever wondered what an 18th century prison looked like? Hang around with Tony Flynn too much and you are likely to find out sooner than later.

In the meantime though, here’s your chance, we have a public open day at our excavations at New Bailey Prison, Salford this coming Saturday 17th November!

The prison was once home to some of Salford and Manchester's most notorious criminals, as well as some who were incarcerated for lesser crimes too.

Inmates at the prison would often have to endure gruelling and endless work, day after day grinding dye with not so much as an xBox or Playstation in sight.

The excavation covers the oldest part of the prison dating back to the 1790's along with areas remodelled in the 19th century and includes excavated cells and basement features.

There’ll be archaeologists on hand to answer questions and tours will be available at 10.30am, 12 noon and 2.30pm but feel free to drop in any time.

To book a place on the tour please email Penny on p.r.d.dargan-makin@salford.ac.uk
