- After 1650, a vast influx of political prisoners and other undesirables saw the Dragonsfold Gaol expand to the dimensions of a prisoner of war or concentration camp. Privileged prisoners continued to be held within the confines of the old palace complex whilst those less fortunate were incarcerated within the external barbed wire enclosures and set to work building their own barrack huts.
