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 It was also used for the storage of important historical documents from the Public Record Office in London, including Domesday Book.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.

The Old Church House Inn, Torbryan, Devon has a long history, built in 1240, it predates the Black Death and the fireplace is thought to be 8th century in origin.

Many people have called this building home, but the de Brian family were the longest lasting tenants having resided there for 250 years.

Behind the bar the wood panelling that lines the wall was salvaged from one of the ships of the defeated Spanish Armada.

According to legend, Bertie Robinson, a local writer would come and write in the pub while having a few drinks.
Robinson, was working on a supernatural tale of terror concerning a giant black devil dog that hunted down and wiped out a family.
Another writer who frequented the pub was none other than, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
Some believe Doyle stole the idea from Robinson and used it to write The Hound Of The Baskerville's. Arguably his most famous book.
It's also believed Doyle poisoned Robinson to shut him up. However, this story is pure speculation.

Talk of ghosts have been a part of the Inn's history for well over a century. With both staff and patrons having numerous encounters with the supernatural.

Most Haunted investigated the Inn in 2005.

Other reported ghostly sightings:-
The Disembodied Arm - In 1997, a woman staying in Room 1 was yanked out of a deep sleep when a horrific sight met her eyes, that of a disembodied arm of a man was floating directly in front of her pointing at the wall behind her.
The Spectral Monk - Over the last century the menacing figure of a monk in a black robe and hood has been witnessed lurking around the bar.
The Landlord's Encounter - A former landlord who lived at the bar with his son heard the boy cry out in terror. When he entered his son's room he could see the transparent form of a man leaning over his son.
The Armada Wall - Patrons sitting at the bar have claimed to see the screaming faces of men in the wood stripped from the Spanish Armada war ship.

The Museum of East Dorset in Wimborne Minster, Dorset dates back to the 1500s. Formerly called The Priest's House Museum.

Hilda Coles inherited the ironmonger's business from her father, Tom Frank Coles, following his death in 1953. Seven years later she took the decision to close the shop and fulfil his long-held wish to turn the building, known as the Priest's House, into a museum. The museum opened on 31 July 1962.

The museum occupies a historic Grade II* listed building, a hall house dating from the late 16th or early 17th century.
Notable rooms are the 17th-century main hall and the 18th-century parlour and a 250 year old kitchen.
Mr Low's Victorian stationery shop (closed up for over 30 years) and the Coles' Ironmongers were both recreated from original shop stock.

John Bowdidge, a Gentleman, lived in the house between 1687 and 1695. Later the building was divided between several families. The front portion of the building was most likely used as a shop from the mid-1700s until 1960.

The outbuildings are Georgian, and the Tin Smith's and Forge are Victorian.

Ghostly Activity
Staff have heard noises and bangs when alone in the House. Books have impossibly 'jumped' off a book shelf! Along with a feeling of being watched. This museum has a lot of potential.

Harwich Redoubt Fort in Harwich, Essex was constructed between 1808 and 1810 to protect the port of Harwich against the threat of Napoleonic invasion. The fort was constructed on a hill, which allowed views in all directions.

French prisoners of war were made to help construct the fort. The fort has a central parade ground. It was originally armed with ten 24 pounder cannons. In 1861 a 68 pounder cannon was added to the fort's weapon range.

Later in 1903 three 12 pounder QF guns were added to the fort. Despite the ongoing modernisation no shot was fired in force. In the 1920s the redoubt was falling into disrepair. The fort was briefly used during the Second World War to house British troops awaiting trial. Restoration started in 1969 and still continues today.

Ghostly Activity
Witnesses have reportedly seen apparitions through the windows and heard unexplained footsteps. Many visitors to the fort have also reported being touched by unseen hands in the lower casements. There have also been many other mysterious noises and apparitions seen by visitors.

The fort is well known for the apparition of a headless soldier. In 1972 a soldier was decapitated by a cable attached to a 12 ton cannon which broke under the strain. It is rumoured that this soldier now roams the fort.

Nothe Fort in Weymouth, Dorset is situated on the shore beside the northern breakwater of the ex-military Portland Harbour, and at the mouth of civilian Weymouth Harbour. Nothe Fort was built in 1872 to protect Portland's harbour, which was then becoming an important Royal Navy base. The fort played an important role in World War II, when the harbour was used as base by the British and American Navy.

In 1956, the fort was abandoned, and in 1961 it was purchased by the local council. It is now a museum and tourist attraction, featuring models, World War II memorabilia as well as original cannons and guns and British and American WWII vehicles.

Nothe Fort has always had a legendary ghostly whistling gunner and many people claim to have heard his eerie whistling in the Fort's extensive underground passageways. Tales of this phantom have been talked about for decades around Weymouth and the Fort affectionately has a passageway dedicated to him. Who this 'shade' actually is, is at this time, unknown.

A survey carried out in 2007 by The National Lottery discovered that the Fort was voted one of the spookiest locations in the UK; in fact staff members sometimes refuse to visit certain areas by themselves.

Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent was built to protect Chatham Dockyard after the invasion by the Dutch in 1667 which raided the River Medway and attacked Chatham's Royal Dockyard.

In 1708 plans were beginning to be drawn up to construct a fortification to protect the Royal Dockyard from a land based attack.
In 1714 land was bought for the construction of the fortifications but work did not start until 1755.
Part of the site chosen included a chalk pit with a number of caves. These caves were extended between 1776 and 1805 to provide an underground labyrinth of tunnels, protected underground gun positions and protection in the event of a siege. The tunnels contain many interesting and important features including a well, privies, loopholed defences, cannon positions and defendable gateways.
To ensure the protection of the Dockyard, three defendable gateways were constructed to control and defend access into the area protected by the Chatham Lines.

In 1820 the defences were declared obsolete due to better artillery equipment with a greater firing range. The whole of the fortifications were used as a training ground during the Victorian period, the practice sieges were so popular that thousands of people came to Chatham to watch them.

During WWII the tunnels were utilised by the Anti-Invasion Planning Unit and Civil Defence, who used a section as their headquarters. This is where Civil Defence was co-ordinated for the North Kent area in the event of bombing as well as support and assistance to the general public after such an incident. A section of the tunnels has been reconstructed into the Civil Defence HQ as it was in 1939.
