The Brest Prison (French - bagne de Brest) was a 254m long prison in Brest, France. It was built between 1749 and 1751 by Antoine Choquet de Lindu, dominating the military port it was built to serve. It could house 300 prisoners (sometimes as much as 10% of the town’s population), children as young as 11 as well as older people. It was demolished in the late 1940s.
