Also known as Tothill Fields Bridewell, Westminster Bridewell and the Westminster House of Correction. It was one of the less severe places of incarceration, as one of the main punishments was not being allowed to talk to other prisoners. Following demolition, its foundations were re-used for Westminster Cathedral which now occupies the site.
