Strangeways. The very name enough to send a frisson of fear down the spine of the even the most hardened felons.

This is the prison where a hundred people found themselves dangling at the end of a rope (until 1964) and where the inmates rioted voraciously in 1990.

But it’s not just a prison, Strangeways is the area north of Victoria Station, colonised by immigrant Jews in the late 19th century whose one-time presence can still be spotted by the eagle eyes and whose community was overlooked by the minaret-shaped prison tower (designed that way by a rather naughty Alfred Waterhouse).

Escape with us around its darkest corners for a less than whole life tariff.
