The Haunting of Jedburgh Castle Jail
If you’re a Most Haunted fan then you’ll probably remember that back in 2008 the team investigated Jedburgh Castle Jail as it’s said to be very haunted.
The jail was built in 1823 on the former site of the 12th century Jedburgh Castle.
The castle was demolished by the Scots commanded Sir James Douglas in 1409 to prevent it from falling into the hands of the English.
The jail was mostly used as a debtor’s prison and it imprisoned men, women and even children.
Jedburgh Castle Jail was infamous in Scotland for its terrible conditions and the cruelty it dealt out to its poor prisoners.
The jail also had a set of gallows and was often used for executions of criminals.
It was finally closed in 1886 but they say that some of the inmates have never really left.
With such a dark history, it’s no surprise that the jail is said to be haunted by many ghosts.
Paranormal activity such as cell doors banging, eerie whistling and phantom footsteps walking along the corridors have been reported by terrified visitors to the jail.
Scared witnesses have also seen the ghostly apparition of a piper standing on the battlements of the jail.
If you fancy having a look around the old jail you’ll be please to discover that it’s opened to the public.
