Online Library documents for HMP STOCKEN
HMP Stocken is an adult male category C prison.
Built in 1985 as a young offender institution, HMP Stocken opened as a category C closed training prison. It has since expanded with new wings added in 1990, 1997, 1998 and an MTU opened in 2003. Further wings were opened in October 2007 and January 2008. In addition, new workshops are being built as part of the prisoner accommodation expansion to ensure that Stocken is able to offer purposeful activity to all of the prisoners in our care.
