The Old Prison, Grove Street c.1965

© This image is not to be copied or published without permission


Built at the same time as Pulteney Bridge, as the old City prison, it had to be demolished to make way. At the time (1772-3), it was one of the only buildings in the area on that side of the river. Robert Adam was commissioned by Pulteney, but Thomas Atwood took over. A car wash operates in a forecourt across the road.
