    From its opening in 1849, HM Prison, Winchester was the main centre for executions in Hampshire and the neighbouring counties, and the executioners were infamous hangmen including William Marwood, pioneer of the 'long drop', and Albert Pierrepoint. This history examines the cases of each of the 29 hangings that took place there from the 1869 Aldershot army camp murderer to the killers of a Cornish farmer in 1963.
