Many Covenanter prisoners were kept in the fearful conditions of the Canongate Tolbooth. Anyone would want to escape, and more than a few Covenanter prisoners actually managed to gain their freedom. We find out more about that in this episode but also look at those who exited the prison still under punishment. Episode 77 covered Gabriel Semple and his time here in 1681.
