You’re Pulling My Leg Tour at Bodmin Jail

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 19th January 2022

Dates: 5 – 24 April

For nearly two thousand years public hangings held a macabre fascination. The gallows is in our language and our landscape.

The Bodmin Jail ‘You’re Pulling My Leg’ tour will take you from the origins of public executions at crossroads and hanging trees, to the vast spectacle of execution at Cornwall’s county jail.

Our award-winning Heritage Guides will take you from public to private hangings, the short drop to the long drop, to the headline executions of the 1800s. Discover hanging folklore, infamous hangmen and punishments beyond the grave this April. You’d be foolish not to.
