Looking for the House of Correction

Richard and Jimmy are again in Petworth fully engaged in their research for the next Bald Explorer episode which will available on the Bald Explorer website. In this podcast, after a general discussion about the merits and delights of the buildings to be found in this lovely old market town in West Sussex, the boys are off in search of the old House of Correction. It was the Bridewell or Prison and was a grim places complete with treadmill and handcrank for prisoners use.
