Derby - Vernon Gate
The way that office blocks have been built on this site behind the facade can be seen here. The building opened in 1827 as the County Gaol. In 1886 its name was changed to HM Prison Derby. From 1919-29 it acted as a military prison and then for part of the period 1933-88 it functioned as an up-market Greyhound Stadium. It is now a business park on South Street, at the end of Vernon Street.
