Inside the Glasshouse

In a series on Forces Radio BFBS, presenter Richard Hutchinson goes inside the prison to explore what is known as the ‘condemned man’s cell’ and through the doors of the detention blocks that take visitors into the execution room.

Richard met Joel Campbell, the owner of Jailhouse Tours, who now takes visiting members of the public in what is now a heritage-led tourist attraction.

Joel tells Richard, in a series on BFBS Totally Connected, all about the background of executions at the jail and some of the eerie history around the condemned man’s cell in an account that is enough to make one’s hair stand on end.
