Attraction in Glos
Once you enter the jail, through where the old courthouse once stood (sadly demolished and ripped_out by its previous owners back in 1986) you will come face to face with an extraordinary Aladdin’s Cave of curiosities. This eclectic private collection touches on a great many sad, disturbing, quirky and at times taboo subject matters - so again be warned!!!
It is an intriguing collection which includes a great many rare and historically significant exhibit items including the hangman’s noose that was used on the man they couldn’t hang - John ‘Babbacombe’ Lee. The skull remains of the last man in Britain to be gibbetted, then hung, drawn and quartered and touching closer to more modern times, you’ll find the tools and belongings of Gloucestershire’s infamous serial killers... Fred and Rose West on display.
