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, but executions continued until 1961 where prisoner George Riley was hung for murder. All executions took place at 8am 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 now open to the public.
