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.

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.

P A R A N O R M A L   A C T I V I T Y

With such a grim and brutal past, Bodmin Jail 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! 

Y O U R   I N V E S T I G A T I O N

Event Blog / Spoiler!


A glorious weekend trip down to Devon/ Cornwall to investigate Bodmin Jail has drawn to a close (and wow were we so lucky with the b/hol weather!)
As the sun went down and last nights event was due to commence, an atmospheric mist descended upon Bodmin Jail, a once brutal 18th Century Prison which saw over 50 executions in its time in operation.
Guests were given a history tour of the location by Jail guide Kristen before being split into small groups to investigate the various sections of this dark and oppressive Jail.
By the end of vigil one, it was apparent that Bodmin Jail was going to offer us a very active night, with all 3 groups reporting back some pretty epic experiences from the word go which lasted right through to beyond 4 in the morning! Shadows were witnessed upstairs by guests as well as EVP’s throughout the location. Equipment triggered on command during vigils held in the depths of the Jail. Whistles were heard, people sensing sickness, cold spots and others feeling touched were just some of the many highlights. For one group, they picked up responses from an Edward and Mary. Edward, being the most prominent down in the Jail basement, followed the group to the next room where a clear EVP stating “Edward” came through on our recorder (to be posted over on instagram). It appears Edward had a connection to Mary, a 16 year old who he had murdered. Having spoken to Jail guide Kristen, recent activity has suggested that a female presence of someone matching Mary’s age has been prominent of late in the areas we reported her activity.
We’re still working on reviewing all the recordings collected from last night (there were many fascinating EVP’s captured so bare with us!).
Guests were all so up for getting involved so thank you again to everyone (including the team) who made this such a memorable Haunted Evening / Weekend!
