Beaumaris Gaol

beaumaris gaol.jpg
Beaumaris Gaol dates from 1829, and at the time was considered a model prison, with running water and an infirmary. Nevertheless it was a gloomy place, with a windowless punishment cell, a yard for stone breaking and a treadmill water pump operated by the prisoners.

The least fortunate inmated were publicly hanged. This was the fate of one Richard Rowlands, whose disembodied voice leads the recorded tour of the building and the various displays on prison life.
