Hexham Old Gaol: In 1330 the first ever purpose built prison was constructed in Hexham and the old gaol building continued in use as a prison until the 1820's. After various other uses it has now been returned to its original state, and over the 4 floors houses exhibitions and displays telling the dark story of this fascinating age.
