Lowdham Grange. Borstal! with Jeremy Lodge
Lowdham Grange Borstal opened in May 1930 when a group of young offenders arrived at the end of their march from Feltham in Middlesex.Jeremy Lodge will tell the story of this pioneering institution which was to survive, against the odds, for some 50 years.
Jeremy Lodge lived at Lowdham Grange as the son of a Prison Officer on his first posting in 1963. He attended Lowdham Primary and Carlton-Le-Willows Grammar Schools then gained a degree at Lancaster University. Returning to Nottinghamshire after several years, Jeremy spent most of his career in management, research and development roles for Nottinghamshire County Council.
