Located in the heart of Buckingham, the Old Gaol was built in 1748 in the style of a stone castle, with later additions in 1839 by the local architect George Gilbert Scott. The purpose-built gaol now tells the story of Buckingham and rural life in the fascinating museum, including the new Flora Thompson room. A number of the original cells still remain.
