HMP Huntercombe opened as a prison in 1946, the site was originally built as an internment camp during the last war, when for a short period it held Rudolf Hess, on his way south after he famously parachuted into Scotland.
It is a Category C adult male establishment holding a solely foreign national population in order to support government priorities on the deportation of foreign national offenders.
