I was given generous permission by the Governor of HMP Manchester (formerly known as Strangeways) to visit the prison for two weeks in August 2018.


The prison is a fascinating place, not least for its stunning architecture, which the general public never get to see. I was able to draw, not only the outside, but also some of the important parts of the interior, such as the kitchens, the printshop and the library.  

These pictures are available as prints and there are still some of the originals
