HMP Pentonville was established by Act of Parliament and received its first prisoners on 21 December 1842. It was the first radial design prison, and over 60 other prisons in this country, and many more around the World owe their design to Pentonville. The influential prison administrator Major Joshua Jebb was the designer of Pentonville and he also served as one of the Board of Commissioners. Pentonville was also unique in being established specifically for the purpose of rehabilitation, and was created to implement the ‘separate system’ which aimed to reform prisoners prior to their transportation to Australia.
