OLD AND NEW AND PENAL ON PORTLAND

View of Portland in Dorset: Castle, Verne Prison, Osprey Quay.

Too much in this picture to explain but includes
Portland Castle
The Verne Prison - and The Verne Prison - currently used as a detention centre for Asylum Seekers awaiting deportation.
Ex-HMS Osprey - with semi-destroyed buildings and new buildings next door.

It turns out to be really difficult to find up to date links!

The buildings do look tough!

Verne is a strange name for a prison or detention center...

Well you're not wrong Lucy, lots going on here but it's not too hard with your info to figure out what's what.

I sense some long and not quite happy story about this place.
