The new prison is being built on the same site as the former HMP Wellingborough which closed in 2012 and will be a category C jail to house up to 1,680 prisoners.

The new prison is part of the governments Prison Estate Transformation Programme to reform and modernise the prison estate, create a better and safer environment to rehabilitate offenders and reduce crowding. The new prison at Wellingborough will create and support hundreds of jobs both during and after the construction phase and will boost the local economy
