World's Smallest Prison : Sark

Sark Prison: The World's Smallest
Location: Sark : Guernsey : United Kingdom

Sark Prison is apparently the smallest as well as the tiniest habitable jail in the world.It was built in 1856. It can house 2 inmates at a push and is still used for overnight stays. if you continue to play up after that you'll get shipped off to a proper grown-up jail with corridors and staff.

In general, it is just a police cell; but also only prison facility in that tiny island. The best expression to call this 18th century style brick built- a cabin without any windows, rather calling it a prison. This small cabin is a notable sight for the tourist.

Nice one, Faysal. ;)

It took me a while to actually locate the most likely location of the place on the island of Sark, Guernsey, at location 49.432025, -2.357264 where there's another Panoramio photo as well.

It took me a good time to find out the cabin , in GE too.There is another photo from Panoramio:

I have already posted this place in GEC, just a little west of these two photos to avoid possible over-marking.

Glad to see you :)

Btw, don't forget to check the second image. It seems that link is broken as I can't see it..

Well I can see it properly from here, but the third image was not visible for long time. Please follow the source I give in caption to see it.
