The Mount

The Mount Prison opened in 1987 as a young offenders institution.

It was designed as a Category C Training prison built on the site of a former RAF station on the outskirts of Bovingdon village, Hertfordshire.

Following a large new build project, the prison now has a population of over 1000 prisoners.  It is a hybrid training and resettlement prison, catering for a number of prisoners in the last six months of their sentence who are residents of Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.
