I took the train all the way from Birmingham to see this person, and it was worth it. I've never been to a prison before, so this was a new experience for me, and it was a cool one, our tour guide, who calls himself "Lucky" was a great guy, and he knew his stuff! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in this sort of stuff, and it is in a good location too. Oh, I had no idea the saying "Pulling your leg" came from someone pulling down on your legs during a hanging, lol!
