Styal Prison is a women's prison in Wilmslow, Cheshire, England. It was built as an orphanage in 1890s. In 1956 this closed and the site re-opened as a women's prison in 1962, with women transferred from Strangeways. It holds 459 prisoners, 80% of which arrive with multiple drug problems.

135 of the prisoners are housed on Waite Wing. There is a 10 bed segregation unit and a 20 bed "first night" centre.

Other prisoners are held on smaller units, (the 'houses')

Regimes include offending behaviour programmes, farms and gardens, mental health work, textiles and reprographics. [http://www.hmprisonservice.gov.uk/prisoninformation/locateaprison/prison.asp?id=520,15,2,15,519,0]
