Newgate Prison

Newgate Prison


Newgate Prison, which stood from 1188 to 1902 (one of the most longest used prison in History) was London's most notorious jail. Many of the prisoners kept there on death row died before they were hanged (death by hanging was the most used death sentence in the ancient London's) due to the intensely squalid condition and exposure to diseases.
