History of Springfield Gaol

This article was posted in Essex History.

If your ancestors were locked up in Springfield Gaol or you’ve found our pages on the Gaol of interest, then you will certainly find a forthcoming talk by prison officers Mick Tyler and Colin Brown even more informative.

Their talk will cover crime and punishment, stories of the convicts, tales of public executions, and the history of the gaol illustrated with many photographs. I am sure they will be able to give you some good background on how your ancestor would have served out their term of imprisonment in the gaol.

The talk is on Friday 18th May 2012 at 7.45pm at Springfield Parish Centre, St. Augustine’s Way, Springfield, CM1 6GX.
