Hindley was originally opened in 1961 as a borstal and became a youth custody centre in 1983. The establishment has undergone a number of population changes over recent years however it is currently a Young Offenders and Adult Male Category C establishment. Hindley has a number of residential wings and the two populations are housed separately although they mix throughout the day in all other areas. Hindley has excellent facilities and services which includes excellent workshop space for vocational courses.
