One of the UK's oldest prison tolhouse museum was originally built as a merchant house around 1150 it is one of the oldest remaining buildings in town. It became a toll house in the 13th century. It later became a goal occupied by smugglers, pirates, thieves, murderers and even witches!! Men, women and children were kept in the dungeon 'The Hold' punishment ranged from bring whipped, placed in stocks, branded with hot iron to be hanged including several local women accused of being a witch. Hard labour was used in the 18th century where prisoners used treadmills or picking oakum. As with most prisons they were over crowded and unsanitary. Ready for demolition in 1882 it was saved and became a library with the musuem added in 1895 which still stands today, despite being bombed during the blitz it was restored and reopened in 1960. During its time it has also been used as a police station, court house, Town Hall and council of war room.

With so much history its not a suprise this place is haunted. Will you encounter?!
