BIG COUNTRY with a “BIG HOUSE” HISTORY: KINGSTON PENITENTIARY

It’s all in the names. When first entering Kingston Penitentiary along King Street West, one enters through the north gate; a true testament to British and Crown authority dating from 1833. You can feel the overwhelming weight of history in all eleven and a half acres of the prison; the vast significance of the structure looking down on you from ten-metre-high solid limestone walls (complete with guard towers once housing 24-hour sentries armed with rifles).
