Surrey County / White Lion Prison

Place  From 1580

From at least 1580 prison facilities were provided by the White Lion Inn. For many years there were plans to demolish and rebuild and this finally happened when the Marshalsea moved onto this site. Other Surrey County Prisons were: at Newington Causeway, where the Sessions House still is, built in 1791 and closed 1878; and near Wandsworth Common, built 1851.
