Prison History on social media

Follow Prison History UK on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

We’re pleased to share the news that we are now on Facebook and Instagram, as well as Twitter.

Our Twitter handle has been up and running since January 2019 – @prisonhistoryuk – and as of this month we have added a Facebook page and Instagram too.

We use the name prisonhistoryuk on all our social media networks, so next time you’re on why not give us a follow?

What can you expect to see on Prison History’s social media?

We share pictures from our database of lock-ups and 19th-century prisons. You’ll also find interesting tidbits and tales from the database, links to Your Stories, our latest finds, all sorts really. Take a look and tell us what you think!

Sharing is caring

With a simple click you can share the page you’re reading on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, or email. There are even more ways to share if you click the plus button!

So if you find something that you think other people need to see, help us spread our Prison History work by sharing the page.
