The first inmates for many years slept in Buckingham’s Old Gaol last Friday evening to celebrate the nationwide event Nights in the Museum.

Seventeen members of 3rd Buckingham Scout Group braved the ghosts and settled down for a night in the cells after a ghost tour of the town with Ed Grimsdale, followed by a movie.

After a breakfast, though not of gruel, they took part in the quiz around the museum, exercised on the Heartlands and left to go home fairly tired but happy they had got through the night.
