This prison was quite the spot, it easily made it into my top 5's! The facility is secluded and nearly untouched, partially since it's not very known and many of those who know it don't care for the long drive into the countryside. I think I only saw 1 or two taggings if even that. The only real vandalism was the occasional smashed glass or pummeled lock in an attempt to enter some of the sealed buildings. The architecture was amazing, a mixture of old stile limestone buildings and modern cell blocks. To top it all off... the place also partially had power. I started my adventure with the prison gate in what felt like a scene from the Walking Dead...
This room was used by the fire department for fire escape simulations, it was complete with vents hooked up to a fog machine.
Next, I reached a cottage that was used by the fire department for training, meaning it, unfortunately, had fire damage, luckily that was isolated to this cottage alone. These cottages littered the property and would have housed inmates. I'm guessing the better behaved or lower security inmates would stay in these as they were quite luxurious as far as cells go. All the cottages not burned were sealed, but you get the basic layout idea from this one.
9. Oops...uploaded the same picture twice, my mistake.
Next was the sewage treatment plant, there were some good views of an overgrown field from it.
After leaving here we entered the more prisony section of the complex. The cafeteria, warehouse, and some workshops were sealed but I managed to get into a sweatshop.
I was surprised to find these remnants, and yes, they worked.
And now for what you've probably been waiting for...the cell blocks!
Inbetween these two cell blocks was the prison's hospital which still had some cool equipment left behind.
Following the hospital, we made our way to the roof of the building for a pretty nice view and a much-needed relaxation period.
Upon leaving this building we managed to get inside a single floor cell block. There were many of these on the east side of the property but they are all basically the same. It appeared as if these cell blocks would hold the maximum security inmates. The control room didn't even look out to the cells but to the showers.
Next was probably the most famous building in the complex, if you see a picture of this prison it's usually from in here. This block could hold the most amount of inmates and appeared most like the Walking Dead
Unfortunately...it was just recently sealed before our visit...moving on we entered the chapel of the facility. All the pews were broken but it was still cool.
The final building we explored here was the visitation building. It had a gym, visit booths, a safe(which we opened), and an armoury.
Okay...I lied...we visited one more building but it was outside of the actual prison the wardens house.
I'll conclude with some exterior shots, thanks for following me on this adventure, I hope you found the images and/or write up entertaining and thanks for viewing!
Till next time!
