The middle balcony is at the level of the photograph point of view and shows cell door openings on both sides. There are figures in the middle distance of the image on the central balcony, looking into a cell.

  1. I'm really pleased that the BSC Conference is being held in Lincoln this year, not least because it will be a great opportunity to visit Lincoln Castle Prison which retains its Separate System Chapel.

    I wonder if any Historical Criminologists whose research has taken in this Victorian prison would be interested in giving a tour? I've visited the prison before but would appreciate, as I'm sure others would, hearing about research 'on-location'. What do you think? I'd be happy to help organise something like this so please get in touch or comment here.
