INSIDE THE FORBIDDING STONE WALLS OF NEW ZEALANDS MOST INFAMOUS GAOL. Mount Eden is this countrys most famous gaol. The forbidding Victorian structure has housed some of the countrys most notorious criminals, and is where many hangings took place, right up until modern times. It ...has been both the site of tension and conflict and a driver of prison reform. It has housed political prisoners such as Rua Kenana and Tim Shadbolt and high-profile criminals such as George Wilder, and many times it has been almost destroyed in big riots.
