Shrewsbury Prison that we see today was built in 1877 having been built to replace an earlier Georgian prison dating back to 1791 on the same grounds. This prison was finally closed in 2013 having seen countless executions during this time.
Shrewbury Prison, or 'The Dana' as it is also known, has a harrowing history and is a location with a vast array of different areas to explore. There is much reported paranormal activity here. Why not listen for yourself and decide if you think the energy of former inmates linger in the now empty cells and various prison rooms.....
