This Halloween, Bodmin Jail is stepping into their darkest stories and history. An eye-opening heritage tour will bring you up close to the Georgians and Victorians at their most grim. From the gallows to the grave, a tour guide will take you on a journey from the anatomy table to the gibbet cage.
Why did we hang at crossroads? When was the last person displayed in chains? Who were the resurrection men? What was the Georgian Bloody Code? Where are the bodies of the condemned? What can Bodmin Jail’s witches tell us about changing attitudes to superstition and religion?
