Where The Gallows Once Stood

Photobucket Goal Entrance

This is one of the entrances to Carmarthen Gaol. This part of the prison is part of the castle and is much older than the part which looms over the town.

One of the towns gallows was situated here. The wall behind was the actual backdrop and saw many murderers swing.

  1. Hi Steven,

    I live in Laugharne and am curious that two of the streets here were once called Hangman's Street and Hangman's Lane. Do you have any info on when the last exeuctions were carried out in Laugharne?
