The new prison at Featherstone near Wolverhampton consists of three 480-place blocks and associated prison facilities. The emphasis of the new facility is firmly on the rehabilitation of offenders with specialist systems being installed for the support buildings, where offenders can learn new skills and trades to help them integrate with society at the end of their sentence.
