 Borstal, Rochester, was a male juvenile prison, it  acquired that function in 1902 when  the Convict Prison was taken over for that purpose. It was for young criminals whose ages ranged from sixteen to twenty.

If you go to https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=53.4098&lon=-2.9240&layers=168&b=1
in the bottom left you will see "Change transparency of overlay:" and a blue button, moving this to the left overlays the old map with the modern view.
