Fremantle Prison, Fremantle: 50 reviews and 96 photos

 
 

The walls in solitary confinement were twice the thickness of regular cells to ensure that inmates could not communicate to each other. They were also double-doored to eliminate any hope of hearing outside noise. The maximum amount of time a prisoner was supposed to spend in solitary confinement was 28 days. However it is believed that one crooked governor kept prisoners in there for years at a time.
