Bodmin Jail Bodmin10
The prison dates back to 1776. The public executions were always guaranteed
crowd pullers in years gone by

The hangings retreated behind doors in 1862.
The large 18th century structure towers above you as you drive into
the car park. Look closely and you can see faces staring back at
you from the old jail windows.

As you enter the jail and walk down the stairs the air begins to cool.
The jail doesnt need pyro-technics to enhance the experience, you
can sense the past just by walking around.

You can visit the condemned cell and some grisly exhibits telling of
the lives and imprisonment of the inmates of Bodmin Jail.

The last hanging took place as recently as 1909.
The Crown Jewels and Doomsday Book were stored here during the Great

To add this amazing history I think we should add that throughout the History of Bodmin Jail makes no mention of hauntings or ghosts but
quite a few people consider Bodmin Jail a very haunted place! This is
no doubt due to the fact that hangings did take place at Bodmin Gaol.
Between, 1785 to 1909 there were 56 executions. It should be noted that
this was a much smaller number of prisoners who had been sentanced to
death. Its supposed that the reminder were either 'transported',
(I think
thats a term for sent to Australia), sent to hulks or sentenced to long periods in gaol.
