HMP Sudbury, Basic Details

Built as a hospital for the US Air Force for the D-Day landings, HMP Sudbury was converted to a prison in 1948. Most of the original single-storey accommodation is still in use but has been converted to double or single rooms. New single-storey buildings accommodate prisoners in either single or two-man rooms. A modular temporary unit (MTU), containing 40 single rooms on two floors, was installed in 2003.

Description of residential units

The wings are a combination of 14 single-storey wartime dormitories, partitioned into single and double accommodation, four single-storey buildings (P1–4) and the MTU.

The #1 governor is called  Adrian Turner and the prison has a capacity of 581. It is run by HMPS as part  of the East Midlands region.
