Outside Looking In - Good Fences 46

"Stone walls do not a prison make,
nor iron bars a cage; ..."

(Richard Lovelace - To Althea, From Prison - 1649)

Earlier in Good Fences I showed a metal fence beside a road and said that it belonged to a prison. 

Here it is again.

Prison Service
Property Trespassers
Strictly Forbidden
Despite that warning notice there is a public footpath through the woods.

Jo commented earlier that the fence did not seem adequate to keep the prisoners in.

Further along however you can see how it's done.

You would need to be a pole vault champion to avoid being inside looking out.

The inner fence makes sense :))

Yep they are going stay locked up! The outer fence is probably to keep onlookers from getting too close! Great pictures Bob.

I am sure th3e fences do more than meets the eye. I would not attempt to get over or under.

Interesting fences for today's post!

WOW! Those are some high fences...:)JP

Ida said...

Those are mighty tall fences indeed.

Felicia said...

they do look quite high from both sides

Gail said...

High and maybe electric charged.

Our local one had rolls of razor wire across the top.

Good "bad" fence.

I am glad to see there are multiple fences. And like Tex I am happy to be outside looking in.. Have a happy weekend and thanks for stopping by my post.

I don't suppose they have pole vaulting as part of their sports curriculum :)
