The grim reality of crime & punishment in 17th & 18th Century Buckingham

The Old Gaol Museum Trust is currently in the process of assembling some incredible material specific to the lives and tales of those who were imprisoned in and who worked within Buckingham Old Gaol.

Tales of murder, tragedy, injustice and repression will be revealed as will instances of daring escape, forced labour and police brutality.


As the DNA of the Old Gaol, these tales will be given tremendous focus in the coming weeks and months, and we look forward to presenting them to you.
