Strangeways Gaol opened in 1868, and replaced the New Bailey Gaol, where public executions had taken place before their abolition that same year. Strangeways was to be a major location of execution for murders commited in the Northwest of England, for the next 100 years. Between 1869 and 1962 exactly 100 people were hanged, several women included in this number.
