Ghosts of Steelhouse Lane


Steelhouse Lane has a eerie and chilling atmosphere which can be felt as soon as you walk in. 

There has been reports of screams and cries being heard coming from the cells which once housed the prisoners held here. Cell doors have been heard slamming shut and the sound of footsteps pacing the metal walk ways have been heard on may occasions. 

The History of Steelhouse Lane


Steelhouse Lane Police Station and Prison is one of the oldest lock ups in the country with a Grade II listed building which means many of the original feature such as the wooden cell doors cannot be changed.

The foreboding interior is basic and retains its original Victorian features throughout the levels, landings and cells. After entering the gaol, contact with the outside world is lost within the stark surroundings of this 120 year old prison.

Steelhouse Lane was once the most feared place in Birminghams slums. In the basement, an underground tunnel provides a secure link to the adjacent Victorian Courts, continuing their fateful journey to a harsh justice.

The notorious killer Fred West spent time at Steelhouse Lane and also some of the Peaky Blinders were also known to have been locked up here.
