    Took a picture at the weekend outside Dartmoor prison in UK and cant recall seeing many pics of bikes and prisons.

    Dartmoor prison was built in 1809 to house the French in the Napoleonic wars and also the fiesty bunch from USA in 1812.

    Mm. There's likely a reason for the dearth of such photos, mate.

    Every jail and prison that comes to my mind right now has signage that prohibits photography...as well as stopping one's vehicle on the road within broad and well-marked institutional boundaries.

    I may be able to get one of my bike near some razor wire on the perimeter of Folsom Prison, but beyond that, I am inclined to follow my gut and proceed with caution.

    It was opened on 14 July 1880 as a maximum security penitentiary on a hill overlooking the Memramcook River valley. It is now, having been built three years after Stony Mountain Institution (1877), the second oldest federal corrections facility in Canada still in operation following the closure of Kingston Penitentiary on September 30, 2013.
    The prison became notorious following World War II as it was responsible for all maximum security offenders in Atlantic Canada.


    this tune follows the reality of the place..

    Yes, be careful how and where you take pictures around prisons (comes from a guy works in one).

    Try to look for closed prisons. Tennessee has a few: Brushy Mountain; The Walls.

    Those are neat, look pre-fab. Do you know any history on them?

    I did some searching on the Oklahoma historical sites but couldn't come up with anything. But I did find some more to add to my list of things to go look at.
