Shepton Mallet Gaol
Shepton Mallet Gaol
The old rear door of the oldest working Gaol in Britain dating from 1610. It was closed between 1930 and 1939 but reopened as an English/American Military 'establishment' between 1939 and 1966. It is nowadays a prison once more. It was in this prison that the notorious Kray twins met Charlie Richardson. They were serving out their 'national service' after absconding.
