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.’
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”.
