Bodmin Ghost Hunt Haunted
Bodmin Jail has an incredibly gruesome past and it should come as no surprise that the sense of what negativity happened here, still lingers today. Join Haunted Evenings on a night of ghost hunting at this imposing haunted location in Bodmin, Cornwall. Whether it’s your first time taking a walk on the dark side, or you’re a seasoned ghost hunter, Haunted Evenings welcome all those intrigued by the paranormal to spend the night in one of the most reportedly haunted jails in the UK! The team will give you a ghost hunting experience like no other, as we set up new and more traditional experiments to see what really haunts Bodmin Gaol. Enjoy a history tour of the location, before trying your hand at investigating the dark corners of this historic building.  For the brave, a chance to go it alone and have  the opportunity to use our extensive range of equipment, for those not so brave, the chance to be a part of a variety of group activities. Haunted Evenings events are the closest thing you’re about to get to experiencing what it’s like to be a true ghost hunter in one of the UK’s most paranormal hotspots!

History of Bodmin Gaol (Jail)

Bodmin Gaol (Jail) was once known as being the most brutal Jail in England! It has been closed now since the 1920’s and whilst many of the buildings have been left to ruin, parts have been saved and turned into a visitors attraction.

During WWI, Bodmin Gaol held the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday book, this is about as “nice” as it gets! The dark side to Bodmin is that from 1785-1909, up to 60 inmates were hanged, most of these publicly and it’s believed that many still haunt the Jail to this day.

Ghosts | Paranormal Activity at Bodmin Jail

With such a grim and brutal past, Bodmin Gaol has all the ingredients for a perfect ghost hunt. There are too many paranormal encounters here to list but many have experienced being shoved, orbs have been captured and there have been many accounts of ghost sightings around the jail. There’s lots of documented history of who lay captured here and who were executed for their crimes. It’s no wonder these stone walls hold a lot of  potential paranormal energy. Join Haunted Evenings as we investigate Bodmin Jail, bringing with us all the very latest paranormal equipment to get to the bottom of all the ghost stories that have been “floating” about! One thing we won’t be picking up on, is Kreed Kafer!
