    Shepton Mallet – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Oldest Prison
      Shepton Mallet prison opened in 1625 and is Britain’s oldest prison (although it’s now a tourist attraction rather than holding ‘lags’). It housed French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars and in WWII it became a military prison for the US Army and held over 700 American servicemen as well as executions. The prison was also used to store 300 tonnes of public records, away from the bombing of London, including a copy of the Magna Carta, the Domesday Book and the log books of Nelson’s Flagship. In the 1960s the Kray twins became ‘guests’.
    2. Most Haunted
      HMP Shepton Mallet is also dubbed ‘Britain’s most haunted prison’. One team of workers reportedly saw the ghost of a US military policeman and refused to go back to work. It turned out a member of the US firing squad had been killed there after a bullet ricocheted off a wall. Staff have reported strange sounds, voices, sightings and more, not surprising in a place that had housed so many tortured souls.
    3. What A Shambles!
      Occupied since the Bronze Age, the town once held an Iron Age hill fort, was a Roman settlement and was recorded in the Domesday Book. The ‘Shambles’ of the Middle Age market place are still clearly visible and the town’s market (which began in 1318) which still runs every Friday, featuring local produce, gifts, tasty treats and the odd drop of Somerset cider.
    4. “I’ll Have a Babycham”
      One of the best-known ad slogans of the 80s, Babycham (made with local pears) was brewed and bottled in Shepton Mallet, at one point they were making 200,000,000 bottles a year. The company was bought by the Matthew Clark company who also bought Blackthorn Cider which was then produced at the same site. Cider in one form or another is believed to have been brewed in the town since the Middle Ages.
    5. Fake!
      Many finds have been discovered on this section of the Fosse Way (an ancient Roman road running across the South West), hoards of coins, weapons, pottery, bodies (!?!), but the most surprising find was the Chi-Rho amulet. Dating to the 5th century it was believed to be the oldest example of Christianity in Britain. It went on display at the Museum of Somerset and a copy was made and presented to the Archbishop of Canterbury. But in 2008 Liverpool university used new techniques to date the amulet and found it was actually a 19th century fake. #Awkward
    6. Rebellion
      Shepton was used twice by the Duke of Monmouth during the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion. Stopping in the town on his way to capture Bath and Bristol (he failed to take either), he also stopped on his way back following defeat at the Battle of Sedgemoor. The Duke was captured two days after his stay at Downside, one mile outside of Shepton. A number of locals joined his cause and after a trial at the court of Bloody Assizes, 12 of them were hung, drawn and quartered in the Market Square.
