Shrewsbury Prison in Shrewsbury, Shropshire was opened in 1793. The Victorian prison as seen today sits on top of the original Georgian prison, the remains of which are still accessible underneath the current buildings.

The present prison building was constructed in 1877 and decommissioned in 2013. The prison accommodated female convicts until 1922.

The former prison site is adjacent to Shrewsbury railway station which is near the site of the Dana Gaol, a medieval prison. The name The Dana is still often used for the prison.

The prison consists of execution areas, the hanging room and long miserable corridors. A must for ghost hunters!

One not to be missed!

St Augustine's Priory was surrendered to the crown in 1535 and it was abandoned at Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries in 1538.

During the Second World War troops were billeted at St Augustine's Priory and at some point it was also an infirmary.

Shire Hall Historic Courthouse Museum in Dorchester, Dorset was Dorset's courthouse from 1797 until 1955. Through that time, it saw everything from the 1834 trial of the Tolpuddle Martyrs to the 1856 domestic abuse case that inspired Thomas Hardy to write 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles', to victims of mesmerism, child perpetrators and American GIs tried during the Second World War.

Discover the depths of the cold, dark cells, before ascending to the dock. Stand in the dock of the famous courtroom, where famous novelist and poet Thomas Hardy was a magistrate from 1884 until 1919.

See where the Tolpuddle Martyrs were held before being brought to trial, thereby sparking the Trade Union movement.

After ending its life as a court in 1955, Shire Hall was used as offices for West Dorset District Council (previously the Rural District Council).

Woodbridge Tide Mill in Suffolk was one of the first tide mills in the country, and was unquestionably the last one working – operating for well over 800 years.

The earliest record of a tide mill on this site by the River Deben is in 1170.

In 1793 the present mill was built on the site of earlier ones. By the 1950s it had become the last working tide mill in the country, but in 1957 finally closed. It was saved in 1968, restored and opened to the public in 1973.

Will you hear the cries of William Bacon, a mill worker, 29 years old who suffocated to death on 6th December 1870?

Charlton House in Greenwich, London was built between 1607 and 1612 by Sir Adam Newton, Charlton House is one of the finest examples of Jacobean domestic architecture in the country.

The house and grounds were used as a hospital for officers during World War I and were bought by the Metropolitan Borough of Greenwich in 1925. The North (Chapel) Wing was bombed during the Blitz of the Second World War and was subsequently rebuilt albeit with non-matching bricks such as were available in the immediate post-war period.

Landguard Fort was built just outside Felixstowe, Suffolk, at the mouth of the River Orwell, Landguard Fort was designed to guard the entrance to Harwich. The first fortifications from 1540 were a few earthworks and blockhouse, but it was James I of England who ordered the construction of a square fort with bulwarks at each corner.

In 1667 the Dutch landed a force of 1500 men on Felixstowe beach and advanced on the fort, but were repulsed by a garrison of 400 musketeers of the Duke of York & Albany's Maritime Regiment (the first English Marines) and 100 artillerymen with 54 cannon. The fort was considered part of Essex in the 18th and 19th centuries; births and deaths within the garrison were recorded as 'Landguard Fort, Essex'.

A new Fort battery was built in 1717, and a complete new fort on an adjoining site was started in 1745 to a pentagonal bastioned trace. New batteries were built in the 1750s and 1780, but the biggest change was in the 1870s where the interior barracks were rebuilt to a keep-like design, the river frontage was rebuilt with a new casemated battery covered by a very unusual caponier with a quarter sphere bomb proof nose. Several open bastions were enclosed, and a mock ravelin block constructed to house a submarine mining contingent.

During the Second World War, it was used as one of the balloon launch sites of Operation Outward. This was a project to attack Germany by means of free-flying hydrogen balloons that carried incendiary devices or trailing steel wires (intended to damage power lines.)

The 10inch gun pit in Left Battery was converted into a Anti-aircraft Operations Room for Harwich in 1939. Visitors as well as local people, have their own experiences of paranormal activity in or around the Fort. The most common being the image of a sailor looking out of the top right window (the side visible from the road). Most reportings were in the 1990s, but occasionally there are still reports of lights at night and being "pushed" whilst visiting the top floors.

The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester, Essex is a historical Grade I listed building dating back to 1465. Located in the busy town centre of Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town, The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester is one of the oldest inns in the area.

The Parliament Restaurant at the Red Lion Hotel was once the old Banqueting Hall, still showing its timbered beams.

There are three known ghosts - a small boy that can be seen in the Parliament restaurant occassionally and has appeared in a guest's photograph, a ghostly monk that hangs around in reception, but the most active is Alice Millar.
Alice was a chambermaid at the hotel and was killed by a lover.
Alice has regularly been heard whispering and even talking to staff. There are recent accounts of people's hair being pulled and a womans voice appearing on a video taken in one of the rooms, with no obvious cause.

The original rooms still have their original wattle and daub beams. They are also, obviously, the most haunted.

HMS Warrior, Portsmouth is located in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and is a 40 gun steam-powered frigate built for the Royal Navy in 1859-1861.

HMS Warrior was launched in 1860, at a time of empire and Britain's dominance in trade and industry, Warrior was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet.

Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful warship of her day and had a lasting influence on naval architecture and design. Work and life on board reflected both the changes the Royal Navy experienced as it evolved into a professional service and shifts in Victorian society.

Built to counter the latest French battleship, Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet by igniting a new era in naval technology, she soon became outdated. After 22 years' service, Warrior's hull was to be used as a depot, floating school and an oil jetty.

Painstakingly restored in Hartlepool and back home in Portsmouth since 1987, Warrior is a unique survivor of the once formidable Victorian Black Battlefleet.

Warrior was first commissioned into the Royal Navy on 1st August 1861 whilst still being fitted out on the River Thames. The Honourable Arthur Cochrane was her first Captain.

The ship's crew comprised 50 officers and 656 ratings in 1863, divided into 34 messes, each with up to 18 men squashed into the space between two guns. The officers berthed in the rear of the ship in small individual cabins; the wardroom was also the officers' mess. The captain had two spacious, well-furnished cabins.

HMP Shepton Mallet, sometimes known as Cornhill, is a former prison located in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England. Before closure Shepton Mallet was a category C lifer prison holding 189 prisoners.

The prison was opened before 1625, expanded in 1790 and further building work was undertaken in the 1820s and 1830s. This included the installation of a treadwheel for those sentenced to hard labour. In 1843 the number of cells was increased by adding a second storey to each wing. The prison was damaged during a fire in 1904. In 1930 the number of inmates had fallen and the prison was closed.

Following the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 the prison was reopened as a military prison. It was initially used by the British Army and later by American forces who constructed a new execution block to hang condemned prisoners. It was also used for the storage of important historical documents from the Public Record Office in London, including Domesday Book.

Much of what has taken place here was brutal. In the 17th and 18th centuries men, women and children were kept in horrendous conditions, starving in packed, smallpox-infested cells. Former inmates lie in unmarked graves throughout the grounds. Seven judicial executions took place between 1889 and 1926, but the total number of executions at Shepton Mallet in its early years is unknown. During the Second World War, it was adopted as a military prison by the British and Americans. By the end of 1944, 16 American soldiers had been hanged and two shot by firing squad for crimes that included rape and murder. The notorious gangsters the Krays were among its former inmates.
