Shepton Mallet Prison - Shepton Mallet, Somerset
The empty corridors and lifeless cells are crying out to be investigated by those who dare

HMP Shepton Mallet, also known as Cornhill now lies abandoned, bereft of those who were incarcerated here.  Having closed as recently as 2013 this formidable prison operated as the oldest prison in England.  However, before its closure it was a Category C Lifer Prison incarcerating the most hardened and dangerous of criminals including the notorious Kray Twins in the 1950s.  The empty corridors and lifeless cells are crying out to be investigated by those who have a fascination for what life must have been like in such a desolate and unforgiving existence.  Originally built as a House of Correction in 1625 this prison has a terrifying history.

Much of what has taken place here was extremely brutal.  In the 17th and 18th Centuries the men, women and children who were imprisoned here existed in the most horrific conditions where they were left starving in packed, small pox infested cells. It is said that former inmates lie in unmarked graves throughout the grounds.  Seven Judicial executions took place here between 1889 and 1926 but the full amount of executions that took place here prior to this is unknown. In the second world war it was adapted as a military prison and used by the British and the Americans.  By the end of 1944 sixteen Americans had been hanged and 2 shot by firing squads for crimes that included rape and murder.

Your Ghost Hunt at Shepton Mallet Prison


Your ghost hunt at Shepton Mallet will be nothing but intense.  With the overriding emotions here being that of sheer survival, basic instincts and challenging behaviours, it makes sense that these emotions are still entrenched within the fabric of the building.  This is a ghost hunt where you will definitely need your wits about you.  The echos that you will hear and the evidential existence of the prisoners who have left their mark in many ways, some as simple as writing on their cell walls, will leave you in no doubt of how things may have been.   That is only the modern evidence.  You should also bear in mind that Shepton Mallet was originally establilshed as a House of Correction in 1625 so again you are left to only be ablet to imagine its barbaric and grissly past. 

Working in small groups you will be taking part in some amazing experiments in our attempts to make contact with whoever or whatever still walks through these prison corridors.  These experiments will include Ouija Boards, Table Tipping, Glass Moving and some intense watch and wait vigils with our up to date ghost hunting equipment.  We will be using the most active areas of the prison throughout the night and you will be guided through this terrifying process by our friendly and capable team. 

Ghosts of Shepton Mallet Prison


The ghosts that are thought to reside in this formidable building are vast and varied. With links back to the early 17th Century and with so many thousands of unnamed victims that lie within the grounds it is not a place where you would ever want to be alone.  In the 1950's Shepton Mallet became home to Reggie and Ronnie Kray the notorious East End gangsters and it seems that their crimes did not just consist to areas outside of the prison.  What we discover here will hopefully begin a longlasting if not sinister relationship with HMP Shepton Mallet.  However, it is fair to say that it will definitely be an intense and terrifying experience for all concerned.
