Jedburgh Castle and Jail
Jedburgh Castle and Jail
Dating from 1823, Jedburgh jail is the only example of a Howard reform prison in Scotland, and sits on the site where Jedburgh Castle once stood. The castle was built originally as a motte and bailey by David I in the twelfth century, and gradually evolved into a stone castle. Under constant attack during the wars between Scotland and England, the castle was finally demolished by the Scots in 1409 to prevent it falling into English hands.
