    durham, frankland, low newton, kirk levington, stockton, they are all within 20-30 mins of you, and not much further you have the likes of wakefield, wetherby yoi, wealstun, leeds.
    The training centre is at wakefield too.

    FWIW (and I'm not sure you would get a choice) I would stay away from young offender prisons, they are much more violent than adult prisons, in yoi's everyone thinks they are hard as ****, in adult prisons most people just wnat to get on with the sentence and get out.

    omg ive never heard of some of them, i had durham and deerbolt in mind. however leeds and wakefield is too far really, unless i was going to move but that would be something else to think about and not sure i want to move anyway :thumbsup:

    frankland and low newton are close to durham
    i forgot about deerbolt
    kirk lev is a cat d resettlement prison and i think you would probably have to have a fair bit of service to get there tbh.
    the wetherby ones (yoi and wealstun) shouldn't be much further than durham if you are driving?
