Public prison commissioned by the Youth Justice Board.
Warren Hill holds remand and convicted young people aged 15 to 18 years, covering courts from Northampton to the South of England.

Warren Hill opened in 1982 to accommodate Cat C Young Offenders in a closed environment. It was part of Hollesley Bay Colony, the other part of the prison being an open Youth Custody Centre/Detention Centre.W
hen the CJ Act of 1991 came into force the population of open Young Offenders unit dwindled, and in 1992 the open establishment was adapted to accommodate adult category Ds – initially as a minority but today the adult population is the majority within the open prison, with Young Offenders occupying one unit.
Warren Hill together with the Carlford Unit (a Section 53 Unit opened in January 2000) went all-juvenile in October of the same year.
In April 2002 though retaining some shared services, HMP & YOI Hollesley Bay became two separate prisons. The Open complex retained the name Hollesley Bay and the Juvenile parts (Warren Hill and the Carlford Unit) became HMP & YOI Warren Hill.

On 1 April 1995, HM Prisons Thorp Arch and Rudgate amalgamated to form HMP Wealstun. This was an historic development for the Prison Service, and had the effect of creating a Category C (closed) side and Category D (open) side within one establishment.
Wealstun's whole-establishment approach is aimed at progressive transfer of suitable prisoners from the closed side to the open side. Use of joint services enable Wealstun to make financial savings whilst maintaining the good reputation of both establishments.

Category C training prison for adult males.

The Verne Prison opened in 1949 on the site of a former military barracks dating from the end of the nineteenth century. The prison, which sits high above the harbour on the Isle of Portland off the Dorset coast, is a Cat C Training Prison for adult males. The population consists of life sentence prisoners and determinate sentenced prisoners, many serving four years or over. About sixty per cent of the prisoners are foreign nationals; over fifty different nationalities represented.

In 1847 a start was made on temporary prison buildings known as The Verne Citadel for prisoners building the Prison Breakwater. The first sixty-four prisoners were landed on 24 November 1848 at Castletown from HM Steamer Driver. The Verne Citadel was designated by Captain W Crossman of the Royal Engineers and enclosed an area of fifty-six acres. A full workforce of one hundred and eighty prisoners laid three million convict-made bricks in two years.
