This place has some history and is up for sale. Would I live in it ... not likely :eek: Not with some of the things I have read about it. HAUNTED :oops:

During the St. Osyth witch trials in 1582, 14 women were accused of witchcraft-related crimes, for which three were executed. During the trials, the women were housed in The Cage. One of the accused, Ursula Kemp, was a local healer who was sentenced to death by hanging; she is commemorated in a plaque that hangs on one of the former prison's walls.
