Will you step inside the 2nd most haunted prisons!!
Reported activity 👻
The silhouette of a shadow man who resides in A Wing. C Wing, the former female wing, is the most haunted. One female prisoner is known to walk from cell 3 to the execution room. Reports of cell doors slamming, pushing down the stairs, noises, footsteps, and much more. Intelligent spirits reside here amazing interaction with equipment on previous visits.
A prison has stood on this site since 1793, with the present building being constructed in 1877. Built with 179 cells for men and 25 for women. Women were imprisoned here until 1922. Used a prison until 2013. The walls hold so much history. With crimes ranging from petty theft to murders. With over 70 public hangings taking place here the last in 1863, executions continued until 1961, when prisoner George Riley was hung for murder. All executions took place at 8 am with the bodies buried on site in unmarked grave. Many deaths occurred at the prison from torture, suicide and murder. In 2004, the prison was investigated due to high amounts of suicide many by hanging. During redevelopment in 1972, 10 bodies were found in unmarked graves, 9 were unidentified, but 1 was George Riley. Shrewsbury in 2012 was overcrowded by almost double the capacity. Closing in 2013 is now open to the public.
With so much history and reported deaths, no wonder this site is the 2nd most haunted prison!!
