    Old Gaol Info

    Hexham Gaol was ordered to be built in June 1330, making it the oldest purpose-built prison in England. Prisons existed before this, but were generally adapted from buildings originally used for other purposes. A prison in the Middle Ages could be as simple as a set of stocks.
