The Wrexham Titan prison and the case against prison expansion

Emily-Luise Hart, Raphael Schlembach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The building of a new ‘super prison' in Wrexham, North Wales has begun amidst a wider expansion of the penal industrial complex. Campaigns are mobilising nationally and locally against the project. This article examines the concerns surrounding what will become the United Kingdom's largest prison and argues that its construction is a symptom of a wider ideological attack on marginalised groups while also examining the case against prison expansion.
