A Night in Bodmin Jail.

My wife and I spent a wonderful time in Bodmin Jail.  This jail has been fully renovated to accommodate a four star hotel.  We spent the night in the Naval Wing in room 125.

Within the Jail’s walls is the only working Victorian Gallows in the UK and has claimed the lives of 55 prisoners.  Each of the Hotel’s rooms has a plaque of an inmate who spent time there, ours was John Hoskins who stole of bushel of wheat and walked into the fresh air for the last time on the 11th August 1796.  The prison closed in 1927.
