Last Night in the Cells

Yesterday evening,  several members and friends from Carnforth Rotary enjoyed an extremely interesting tour round Lancaster Castle.
Janet, the guide, added atmosphere and humour to the whole event with her knowledge,  bubbly personality and tales of ghostly happenings. We learned about the trial and demise of the Lancashire Witches, given information about the branding iron and shown several types of prison restraints which were used in olden days. The scold’s bridle, a device used on ‘outspoken’ women, was never cleaned so diseases were spread and many people died.

An experience behind bars
Time out of the cells.
