History & Haunting
Located in Beaumaris on the beautiful island of Anglesey in North Wales, the Gaol was designed by Joseph Hanson and was built in 1829. It was expanded in 1867 to accommodate approximately 30 prisoners, however it was closed only 11 years later. The building then became a police station until the 1950’s when it then became, if not rather oddly, a children’s clinic and then finally a museum in 1974. The Gaol’s chapel is still in it’s original condition. The Gaol housed men, women and children.
The prison is most well known for its brutal methods of keeping criminals in check, including the use of stretching racks, chains and whippings. A number of hangings took place at the Gaol over the years, including public hangings. The bodies of some of the prisoners who were hung remain in unmarked graves within the prison walls. One of the most well known hangings at the Gaol was Richard Rowlands in 1862 who was executed for the murder of his father in law. Rowlands protested his innocence, and according to local tradition he put a curse on the clock in the church tower opposite the scaffold. To this day the clock has never kept the right time.
There are a number of reports of people seeing the apparition of the Gaol’s Governor as well as that of one of the wardens. These spirits are described and powerful and like to pick on women.
Footsteps are regularly heard following people and quickening in pace as people try to run away. Doors banging, voices and screams can be heard throughout the prison and it is said that in one of the cells where there is a cot, that the cot moves as if being rocked by unseen hands.
Will you be brave to take on a lone vigil in the condemned mans cell, where prisoners would spend their last night before being executed the following day?
