With 45 people executed and the deaths of numerous other prisoners due to disease etc it is not hard to believe the gaol is haunted. Many people have witnessed seeing apparitions of now deceased prisoners, hearing disembodied voices, the feeling of being watched or touched, inanimate objects moving on their own accord and much much more.
