South Entrance to the Verne prison, Portland
South Entrance to the Verne prison, Portland
The prison now occupies the old fortress which was hewn from the rock at The Verne on the heights of the island in 1848. This citadel was to house a garrison of over 1000 soldiers and mount guns to support the batteries defending the harbour. It is protected on the SW side by this huge ditch and on the N & E sides by sheer cliffs.
