Holloway Prison has been an important landmark in Islington for over 150 years. Thousands of women passed thorough its doors until it closed in 2016. Many well-known prisoners have been held at the prison, but there are voices which remain unknown and unrecorded.
This project, run by Islington Heritage Service, seeks to capture stories of this highly significant place meaning that, even now it has gone, the voices and echoes of Holloway Prison will remain. To find out more about the project, explore our project site here.
