Each weekend the local towns are riddled with prisoners from this nick out on home leaves, town visits or working. Such is the nature of being near an open prison. And, by and large, this migration takes place without note. Legend has it that recently a bunch of guys from here were "fronted" by a gaggle of local tough guys in the city. Perhaps they thought a small group of middle aged men were an easy touch to divest of possessions? "You muppets, we're all Lifers out on day release from prison and 3 of us are murderers. Are you sure?" Having hinted at the dire consequences that could follow further aggression our boys moved on, leaving in their wake a slightly shaken and bemused gaggle of plastic gangsters.
