1792 The Old Gloucester Gaol


1792 The Old Gloucester Goal

Expect the Unexpected

The conversion of 1792 The Old Gloucester Gaol will see the transformation of the listed former prison buildings in to a number of unique and interesting new homes, close to a range of stylish restaurants and shops in the popular Gloucester Docks area.

At the centre of the site lies the Grade II* listed former Main Prison Building, which along with the Grade II listed former Debtors Prison, Governor’s House and Outer Gatehouse will all be turned into residential use, while the addition of seven sensitively designed new buildings within the grounds will provide additional housing. The result will be an exciting range of contemporary one, two and three bedroom homes with private parking, surrounded by a high quality landscape that will include the display of fascinating medieval archaeological remains that were uncovered during the planning application stage.

As part of the redevelopment, the former Chapel in the Main Prison Building will also be turned into community space or potentially a restaurant/café, to provide a vibrant heart of the development and taking in the characterful surroundings of the former prison.

History of 1792 The Old Gloucester Gaol, Gloucester Development

The first settlers on the banks of the River Severn at Gloucester are thought to have been Romans. During the Anglo-Saxon era Gloucester was originally within the Kingdom of Wessex before it was lost to Mercia in 584.  Gloucester Castle was built to the west of Barbican Hill (on the site of the current prison) overlooking the River Severn in the very early decades of the 12th century and was partly in use as a gaol by 1185. Gloucester’s trade was centred on the river and was appointed a port town by Queen Elizabeth I in 1580.
