Ghost Hunts Shrewsbury Prison Jail

Haunted Evenings will be conducting an overnight lock down at this frightening former prison in Shropshire. This location is huge and we will have access to various areas such as the old execution areas, wing A, corridors and cells in the vulnerable prisoners area to name but a few. Our Ghost Hunts Shrewsbury Prison Events will see guests have the chance to investigate in scarily small numbers, experience traditional activities such as glass divination, human pendulums, dowsing rods and table tipping as well as modern experiments such as lock downs with listening devices, thermal imaging cameras, all the very latest equipment and trigger objects. Are you brave enough to experience a Haunted Evening at Shrewsbury Prison?!…..

Gruesome History of Shrewsbury Jail

Outside Shrewsbury Prison

Outside Shrewsbury Prison

The original Shrewsbury Prison, built in 1793 was named after Rev Edmund Dana and is known locally as “The Dana”. This current prison built in replacement of the original, was constructed in 1877 and closed in 2013. The site bore witness to countless executions, the last public hanging took place in 1863,  drawing an insanely large crowd of bystanders who, in those days, saw public hangings as a form of entertainment. The last execution was conducted within the prison walls in 1961. In 1972, during redevelopment, workmen discovered the remains of 10 inmates buried within the grounds who would have been executed on site. Most bodies would have been buried within the grounds in unmarked graves at Shrewsbury Prison. It is with this and its many thousands of criminals who have entered through its doors over the years (and the many who never left) that make this an intense place to go ghost hunting!

Paranormal Activity at Shrewsbury Prison Jail

Inside Shrewsbury Prison with Haunted Evenings

Prison Block | Inside Shrewsbury Jail

Finally closing its doors to inmates in 2013, Shrewsbury Prison is relatively new to paranormal investigations. Now stood eerily silent and with a sense of abandonment, it is little wonder Shrewsbury Prison puts many night time visitors on edge. Whilst inside may feel quite modern by many standards, this Victorian building would have witnessed some very harrowing scenes. Does the energy of former inmates still linger? Join Haunted Evenings as we investigate the empty cells and various prisoner rooms to discover just how haunted Shrewsbury Prison is,
