ABOUT THE VENUE:
An absolutely notorious location, the original jail was built in 1779 and was a place of hardship, imprisonment, death, illness and misery, not to mention a site of many executions.
Today one can visit the cold dank cells, look up at the thin light filtering through a small barred window and imagine being sentenced to even a week in such desolation.
It is a very large site, with numerous cells and levels, with plenty to explore.
