Dining Hall

The kitchen complex is the result of many additions and successive reuses of interior and exterior spaces. At some time, probably after 1939, the exercise yards of Cellblocks Four and Five (adjacent to the kitchen) were converted into mess halls with small working kitchens. Remnants of the tables, which were bolted to the floor, can be seen.
