About the event

HISTORY OF THE GALLERY

The building stands on a site which can be dated back to 600AD –  archaeologists have discovered clues within the sandstone caves  underneath the building to suggest the site has been linked with  imprisonment and punishment since these early times. Written records show that the site was used as a court from 1375 and then also as a prison from 1449. In 1876.

To name a few of the iconic rooms, within the building you will find;  the Courts, the Night Cell, Men's Cells, Women's Washrooms, Chapel,  Caves and even the terrifying Condemned Cell where a prisoner's last  hours were spent before succumbing to the noose as dawn broke.

The last public execution was held in 1864 when Richard Thomas Parker  was hanged. The Daily Guardian of 25th July, 1864 reported: ‘Richard  Thomas Parker, 29 was indicted on a charge of feloniously shooting  Samuel Parker, with intent to murder him at Fiskerton on 29th March. He  was also charged with feloniously shooting at Elizabeth Parker, his  mother, with intent to murder her on the same day.’

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY

Staff and visitors of the museum have reported sightings of ghosts and  apparitions. This includes frequent reports of soldiers being seen on  the steps of the main entrance hall and a lady pushing a pram as if in a  trance. Some allege that the court rooms themselves have produced many  light anomalies and there have been sights of people overlooking the  balconies.

Some visitors have described hearing sounds they “would never forget” and the “feeling of  being watched”.
