About Pentonville N1

Much of Pentonville at the western end of Chapel Market was covered by fields before the growth of Islington, but near the modern-day junction of Penton Street and White Lion Street stood the White Conduit Tavern, which opened on 30 January 1649, the day Charles I was executed. It was converted into a fashionable tea house in the mid eighteenth century. There, according to Oliver Goldsmith in The Citizen of the World, ‘the inhabitants of London often assembled to celebrate a feast of hot rolls and butter; seeing such numbers, each with their little table before them, employed on this occasion, must no doubt be a very amusing sight to the looker-on, but still more so to those who perform in the solemnity’. Cricket was played next to the tavern in Pentonville, and when the Pentonville cricket club’s wealthy members decided they could no longer play on a public field they asked an employee, Thomas Lord, to find a new ground. Lord chose a site in Dorset Square, Marylebone, and he and several White Conduit members left Islington to found the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which played its first game the following year against the White Conduit at Dorset Square. A new tavern was built in Pentonville in1828, and it was there that five of the Tolpuddle Martyrs were welcomed on their return from Australia in 1836. It is now the Penny Farthing. Pentonville Prison, Caledonian Road at Wheelwright Street Built in 1842 as a model prison for men between eighteen and thirty-five and based on John Haviland’s Pennsylvania State Penitentiary, Pentonville initially employed a regime in which inmates were kept in solitary confinement in light, airy cells (an improvement on the overcrowding of traditional prisons), sent to the basement if they dared to make contact with other inmates, and transported to the colonies after eighteen months. The authorities deemed this system so successful that fifty prisons were built in similar fashion in England over the next decade. When Oscar Wilde spent a short time in Pentonville in 1895 after being convicted of gross indecency, friends tried to bribe the governor, J.B.Manning, by offering him ?100,000 to help Wilde escape.
