Pentonville prison was the prototype for a radical design by Major Jebb – after whom the avenue on which Brixton prison stands was named. Pentonville was completed over 170 years ago and has remained in use ever since as a local prison. Although much refurbishment has taken place the original four cellblocks are as they were when the prison opened in 1842.
