Renovation at 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.
Finally our long-awaited renovation of the Old Prison will take place this winter. When not only the two glazed areas housing the cafe and Cotswold Discovery Centre will be replaced, we’ll also be updating the cafe kitchen and washrooms. We’re delighted to be able to carry out this vital work which will enable us to further improve the Old Prison as a heritage site for years to come.
You can help! We are still actively fundraising for the final sums for this project. Please visit our how to support us page to donate whatever you can afford.
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.
