History of Jedburgh Castle Jail
Jedburgh’s Castle Jail was built in the 1820’s on the site of the Royal Burgh’s medieval castle. The castle was once one of the most important Border strongholds which was sadly destroyed in 1409. Not only is the existing Jail built on this historic site, the land was also documented as being used as the towns Gallows, a place where people would have been hanged after sentencing. With so much history connected to one site, it is no wonder that Jedburgh Castle Jail is one hell of a haunted hotspot!
