This category of prisons covers those that don't fit into the major types of prison (County Gaol, Town Bridewell etc.) These include ancient state prisons such as the Tower of London, those run by religious authorities such as London's Clink Prison and the Westminster Gatehouse, and others with special jurisdictions, such as Lydford Tower or the Savoy military prison.
