Ripon Workhouse


This week has been rather quieter as we have entered the Easter School Holiday.

Work in the Collections Gallery has slowed as our contractors are busy with schools. But our case lighting is now complete and we are looking forward to the track lighting going in starting this week.


Our curator, Megan, spent a few interesting couple of days at Ripon Workhouse Museum. She was invited to speak about the Voices from the Workhouse project at Ripon Museums’ AGM. They have just purchased the main block of their workhouse from North Yorkshire Council (pictured) and are beginning to plan what they will do with it. Exciting times for Ripon.

This week we also had a catch up on all the loose ends of the project and did a review on what is still left – scarily quite a lot! It was reassuring to chat through it and to make sure that we were all aware of our roles and responsibilities in the final year of the project.
