Contribute a Story

Do you have a story about any of the institutions listed in either 19th Century Prisons or Your Local Lock-Up that you would like to share with us? Perhaps an urban myth about your local lock-up that has been passed down through the generations? Or can you tell us about a project to restore or convert a local lock-up or prison into a new community space or business? Have you, your community, or your workplace found a use for the data that we have collected in either 19th Century Prisons or Your Local Lock-Up?

Please tell us your stories! We want to bring the data in Prison History to life. Through sharing stories, we can start to understand the importance of past experiences of criminal justice in the present.
