Episode Summary

EDIT
Appleby, Cumbria
AIRED:
Jailhouse Rocks. From the late 1700s onwards, Britain went through a period of great social reform as changing attitudes led to many alterations to the country's legal and social systems. One of the areas of change was how society dealt with crime and punishment. Today, Appleby police station stands on the site of the original 1771 gaol house and court in the town, which were built to serve the now defunct county of Westmoreland. The fact that the gaol house was constructed and developed during this period of reform meant that many of the new social attitudes were reflected in the design of the building. In this new age of crime and punishment, men and women prisoners were separated; executions were held privately, instead of in public places; prisoners had their own cells, rather than being kept in large, communal ones; and a regime of repetitive, mindless tasks was imposed to break the will of the inmates.moreless
