In which English city is Armley prison?
Armley prison opened in Leeds in the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1847 and was constructed on the then-modern penitentiary principal with four radial wings. It was a grim and forbidding building in line with the Victorian ideas of prison and was responsible for housing prisoners sentenced in the West Riding of Yorkshire. It also took over the duty of carrying out West Riding executions from York Castle. Ninety-three men and one woman were to suffer the death penalty at Armley between 1864 and 1961. An average of almost exactly one per annum.
