The prison has 104 cells. It also had no electricity, heating and no running water.  Some of the executions were hangings, and gas chambers. 14 men were executed all together nine were hung and five were gassed. The prison had different disciplinary actions, a dungeon, several solitary confident and a punishment pole were inmates were handcuffed and whipped by a rubber hose.   Many deaths beside executions happened at the prison, it’s reported that over 200 inmates have died due to living conditions, some guards were murdered by inmates who tried to escape. Lots of stress and death plague the prison.  Many of the executions were slow and painful, the gas chamber took up to 10 minutes, and eyes popped tongues bloated, slow suffocation all happened. The hanging was a slow process as well.

The prison wasn’t all grizzly; it produced many goods for four major industries during the years of 1901 and 1917 the prison had a boom factory, but the factory was burned down by some of the inmates during a riot. The factory was then rebuilt and was used a shirt factory it brought more revenue to the state. The last products the prison made were blankets for the military and license plates. The prison then closed in 1981. It sat abandoned till 1987 were a movie was filmed, significant damage was done due to the building not being recognized as a historic place. In 1988 it was dubbed a museum and was named a historic place, it now gives tours too many visitors.

Paranormal Activity:

Due to the deaths of the executed and deaths of the inmates who died from the living conditions the ghosts are reportedly to roam the halls. Maybe the ghost’s are scared that they will go to hell, so they haunt the prison instead.  The inmates were murders, rapists, burglars and committed other crimes. These men who committed horrible crimes now haunt the prison, so imagine what type of things the ghosts do to visitors.

Ghost Adventures was there to see if the prison was really haunted, here is what they found.

Haunting’s: Ancient Ram Inn

The Ancient Ram Inn was built on an ancient Pagan burial ground; the inn is located in Wotton- under- edge in England. The Inn was built upon a burial ground where bones and other findings are still being found. The inn has a certain unsettling feeling when you walk in. Creaky floor’s musty smells and overbearing feeling of being watched by something, or someone, due to its history it’s not hard to see why.

Brief history:

the inn was built in 1145; it was a former priest’s residence and also an inn and public house. The pagan burial ground that is said to be underneath the Inn is about 5,000 years old. The house was first used to house masons, slaves and workers who were building the St. Mary’s church across the street. The land sits upon an intersection, the ley lines. People believe that those two lines hold high spiritual energy. Using a map, those two lines can be traced all the way to  Stonehenge legends say that the energy from Stonehenge travel’s to power the paranormal activity in Wotton. A witch, who is said to haunt the place, was burned at the stake during the 1500’s during the prosecutions. She took refuge in the Inn before she was captured. Many people believe she haunts the place, a room called the “witches room” is dedicated to her. In the late 1960’s a man by the name of John Humphries, watched the house. During his first few nights, john was met with an angry spirit who grabbed him by the arm and dragged him down the hall way. John is the only living occupant in the Ancient Ram Inn, he dedicated his years protecting the house. Inside the home he found evidence of spiritual rituals, scarifies and devil worship. He discovered skeletal remains of children under the staircase, also with the skeletons broken daggers. He still claims to be haunted and attacked the spirits in the house.

Paranormal activity:

The current owner and previous owners have claimed this house to have many different spirits. Which makes it the most haunted house in all of Great Britain.

An Incubus is said to haunt the place, it wakes you up and wants to have sex with you.

A witch haunts a room in the house; she is reportedly nasty and mean.
