Dumbarton Prison: door
Dumbarton Prison: door
See NS3975 : Dumbarton Prison: entrance portico for context. The entrance portico is shown there, preserved in place, but set in a recent (1973) wall. The facade of the prison was taller and much wider, and the entrance portico stood in front of it.

The original heavy oak door, with its iron studs and peephole, has been retained, as shown here.
Dumbarton Prison
A Geograph article Link discusses the prison in detail. It was built from 182426, enlarged in 1863, and closed in 1883. It then held county records until 1965. During the realignment of Glasgow Road in 1973, the prison was almost entirely demolished. An entrance portico survives in place; some cell windows and a Royal Cipher have also been preserved, and are now incorporated in the modern (1973) boundary wall.
