The History of Derby Gaol:

Delve into the history of Derby Gaol (Jail) and there is little wonder as to why this location has claimed the crown for the most haunted building in Derby! The Gaol that exists today was constructed from many of the original materials used from the original Derby Gaol that was constructed after an act of parliament in the early 1500’s to house local criminals – from mere petty crime to brutal murders. The original jail was eventually decommissioned and the new Derby Jail built in 1756 after the old site was sanctioned as unclean and of poor living conditions. However the new gaol was hardly 5 star by comparison! Built to house up to 23 inmates, it soon became a place of overcrowding and poor sanitation, Gaol fever ran rife throughout and death was a common occurrence inside the gaol walls. It wasn’t until 1787 that it was deemed unacceptable and a law was enforced that all Gaol cells should be lime-washed and cleaned once a year!
