The Old Prison
We became the proud owners of the Grade II* Listed Georgian Old Prison in Northleach in July 2013. The 18th century Georgian Old Prison is now a visitor attraction, café and home to the Lloyd-Baker Rural Life Collection. As owners of this important Grade II* listed heritage building, we continually work to improve the site as a heritage attraction.
We have plans to ensure that this heritage site is both preserved and enhanced so it can be enjoyed by visitors for many years to come. Essential work will soon need to be carried out on the roof and galleries and some of the artefacts will also require conservation work. This is no small undertaking. Our fundraising efforts have started in earnest now, and 2018 is a big year for us to make significant improvements to the Old Prison.
Watch this space later as we increase our fund raising efforts for the Old Prison. If you would like to help, either as a volunteer or by donating towards this cause, please visit our how to support us page.
The Old Prison is managed on our behalf by the Cotswold Conservation Board, who rent the site from us. They run the café, work out of the offices upstairs and make sure that the site is open for visitors to enjoy the court room, prison cells and Cotswold Discover Centre.
