Goals were dark usually filthy places where people were held prior to trial and sentence and not as a punishment in themselves. Most subsequent punishments were held in public view. This is Colchester Castle Gaol. Some of the people held on heresy charges in Colchester were held here prior their trial and burning, including for a short while William Munt, Alice, his wife, with Rose Allen their daughter. Picture taken June 2007.
