The Story of Dartmoor Prison
By Chips Barber

Chips Barber

To a certain captive, and generally unappreciative, audience, ¿Dartmoor¿ is not the high mist-shrouded, granite-strewn moorland of the famous National Park; it is the grim, grey, granite gaol known as HMP Dartmoor. The casual holidaymaker, who stops in a lay-by near Princetown prison to snap a photo of family members with the distant prison also in view, has little or no idea what it is like to spend ¿time ¿ inside it...

The Story of Dartmoor Prison is a brief portrayal of some of the more notable incidents in the prison ¿s past. Although such a grey place in many ways, it has a most colourful history. This potted version of its story is presented in an approximately chronological fashion.
