Glendairy ‘next gem’

THE OLD JAILHOUSE could possibly rock.

In fact, Sir Henry Fraser believes Glendairy Prisons, built in 1855, could be the next Harrison’s Cave in terms of popularity as an attraction.

Sir Henry was the master of ceremonies at Saturday night’s official decommissioning of Glendairy Prisons.

He has been a long-time advocate of its decommissioning, especially after the trust had to cancel the 1855 building as the showpiece of its open house programme this year.
