Execution by hanging took place on the steps of the Galleries and this was the only place you could be tried, sentenced and punished under one roof. The entrance hall is supposedly haunted by 4 ghosts;

The courtroom has been reported to have knockings, groans, footsteps and the sound of the gavel hitting the judge’s desk has been known to sound throughout the room. The smells of rotting corpses and dark shadows have been experienced in the viewing gallery.

In the Cells and corridors there are the sounds of footsteps, cell doors banging and the sound of keys jangling, as well as the apparition of a man. Could this be one of the guards making sure the prisoners are still incarcerated within their cells? Feelings of depression have also been experienced within this area.

Children’s cries have been heard throughout the laundry room and also the sound of female voices. Doors are known to slam in this area and in a certain room there has been many reporting’s of females feeling a discomfort in their stomach, as though they are in the late pregnancy. This is supposedly from a worker in the laundry who was murdered whilst she was in the late stages of pregnancy and died within this room. It is here that you could be overcome with emotion as many visitors have reported this.

The most haunted part of the galleries however is in the very depths of this building. In the chapel crosses are known to be thrown and growls are heard, as well as voices. In the caves, remains of animal bones and artifacts have been found, which suggest suffering; this may explain why the Victorians felt the need to close the building down.

Visitors have reported feelings of being watched and of becoming overcome with sickness and dizziness. The most disturbing evidence of this amazing building being haunted is the reports of scratching and stones being thrown accompanied by the presence of dark shadows that torment your very soul.

A Victorian gentleman, a Soldier, a lady in a long gown and the fourth spirit is known to be responsible for cold spots. The spirit is a little girl who is seen on the stairs and the grand jury room.
