This is a real ghost hunt and not for the faint hearted


Ouija boards will be available for this event




Shepton Mallet Prison in Somerset - officially known as HMP Cornhill - has been home to thousands of convicts since opening its doors in 1610. Much of what has taken place at this prison was brutal. In the 17th and 18th centuries men, women and children were kept in horrendous conditions, starving in packed, smallpox-infested cells.

Seven judicial executions took place between 1889 and 1926, but the total number of executions at Shepton Mallet in its early years is unknown. During the Second World War, it was adopted as a military prison by the British and Americans. By the end of 1944, 16 American soldiers had been hanged and two shot by firing squad for crimes that included rape and murder. The prison was used for judicial executions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Shepton Mallet was one of the oldest working prison in the UK as well as the highest walled prison and many of the executed inmates are buried in unmarked graves in the grounds'

In the 1950s, the prison became home to London's feared East End gangsters Ron and Reggie Kray, during their stay the twins met future rivals Charlie Richardson and George Cornell, who Ron later shot dead in The Blind Beggar pub in London's Whitechapel. It is not surprising to learn that the prison is reputedly seriously haunted. If the walls could speak is what previous prison officers repeatedly say.

This prison has been tagged as one of the most haunted locations is the uk "Lights go on and off, you can hear doors banging and areas of prison will get really cold all of a sudden."The prison is renowned for ghostly goings on and it is believed a woman in white, who died of a broken heart in 1680 after murdering her fiance, wanders the empty corridors between wings A and B.When the building still operated as a prison, there are tales of officers refusing to work night shifts for fear of seeing a deathly figure wandering the corridors.
