Dartmoor Prison – it’s name conjures up the bleakness of the desolate stone walls, the clanking of chains. But did you know that it was designed not for criminals but for French POW’s? This month sees the start of a new series on the history of Dartmoor Prison – a rich tapestry of the suffering and ingenuity of some of its inmates, and the indomitability of the human spirit amid the confines of barely human conditions. It will uplift you and sadden you, but most of all it is a highly readable and important piece of British history.
Prison life is quite a feature of this issue although of course there are many very good stories. See, for instance, the Swansea double hanging – ‘Coincidence Beyond Belief’. The experience was too much for a trainee assistant hangman – he quit straight afterwards!
