Dartmoor Prison was constructed originally between 1806 and 1809 by local labour, to hold prisoners of the Napoleonic Wars, it was also used to hold American prisoners from the War of 1812. Dartmoor Prison was reopened in 1851 as a civilian prison, and has contained some of Britain's most serious offenders ever since. It has a misplaced reputation for being escape-proof.
