Bodmin Jail was designed by Sir John Call and built in 1779 by prisoners of war, and was operational for 150 years closing in 1927. During this time the jail saw over 50 public hangings with the last one taking place in 1909.
Today a lot of the jail is in ruins but the tourist attraction is over six floors and takes you through the history and experiences.
