    Hi smiler 16, No it's not you , it is a prison. Has been for ages now. As it's on my rounds sometimes I'll try and get some up-to-date photographs next visit.

    Thumbs up Re: Bovingdon

    Hiya,

    The Bovingdon control tower is still there. I was there today, although half of it has fallen but still worth a look!

    Oh and you can see the prison from the control tower. Its a category c meaning something like they arent at risk of escaping or something?

    There are four catergories of prison A-D. Cat A prisons are high security such as Full Sutton. Cat Bs are local remand jails and also sentenced prisons. Cat A and B have a high brick wall round them. Cat C such as Bovingdon and Haverigg have huge great fences and prisonrs shouldnt be able to escape them. And cat D such as Ford are low security. Cat D are used for "white collar" crime and for prisoners coming to the end of their sentence.

    That was my reply to similar question on the Flypast forum. It is still there & seemed pretty solid when I walked in it.
